Artist Lisa Ellul’s ceramics take a leaf (and a few twigs) out of the natural bounty surrounding her studio in England’s Peak District. Pressing these plant materials into fine sheets of clay, she creates intricate fossilised leaf patterns on the surface of the delicate bowls pictured here. You’ll find these botanically inspired artworks – and others by around 200 British artists – at Handmade at Kew, taking place this month at leafy Kew Gardens in southwest London.

I was absolutely delighted to have my tubular bowls given a whole page spread in the Cathay Pacific in-flight magazine!
