Recently Rachel has been working on collections that focus around daily affirmations. These motivational mottos have been integrated into her brand new notebooks, prints, ceramics and totes.

Rachel understands how fast life moves, and describes why she’s started this new collection: “In a world were everything moves at a million miles an hour, we barely get a moment to stop and think, so the idea behind these products is to give people a daily reminder that, as long as we’re kind, and brave with our dreams, we take time to do good and help one another the world will be a much nicer place. Enjoy the simple things and don’t take life to seriously!” All of these items are hand-illustrated and designed by Rachel herself, and we love how much care she puts into her work.Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset

One of our favorite products Rachel stocks, is her succulent planter kits. She enjoys scouring specialist plant nurseries and succulent varieties, as well as propagating baby succulents from her own collection to make sure she’s got an array of beautiful and healthy plants. Rachel’s a self-proclaimed lover of succulents, so be sure to stop by her booth and get tips on how to care for your new plant babies!

At our London Fair, Rachel will be showcasing her new collection of completely hand thrown porcelain planters that she’s spent the last 20 weeks making! Her planters are a labor of love, and a reflection for her devotion to her plants. These pots require several drying and glazing stages as well as three firings before they are complete!
