On Monday I had a long lunch on Ile Saint-Louis with the fabulous Pia Jane Bijkerk, whom I met in June in Amsterdam . Pia is in town on a whirlwind visit for her beautiful new book Paris: Made by Hand. You can pick up a copy at WH Smith on rue de Rivoli. Be sure to look at the imaginative window display Pia created in the store's rue Cambon vitrine.
And Pia hand-carried her friend Riley Salyards' gorgeous pottery, all the way from Amsterdam. Talk about special delivery! Visit Riley's new blog Roe. Her work is for sale at a lovely antiques shop at 827 Prinsengracht, Amsterdam. More details here.
Raku featuring my favourite aqua and an interior imprinted with vintage lace.
This bowl is imprinted with natural materials Riley found during walks with her young son.
