This Week: Pippa Small Pop-Upby Polly Leonard
This week, ethical jeweller Pippa Small is hosting a Korean artisan pop-up at her Notting Hill boutique.
The carefully curated pop-up contains bamboo lacquered pots by SGM, which are coated with twenty-four hand-painted layers of lacquer, pottery by Cha Jun Ho who creates his own glazes using red pine ash and currently has pieces on exhibition at the British Museum, and floral tea by award-winning blender K. Herb Coop.
Pippa has always been passionate about collecting treasures from around the world. In the Southern issue, we published an article about Pippa's vibrant London home, whose decoration was inspired by Pippa's own travels and work with grassroots organisations in the Far East. Here is an extract from the article by Emily Wheeler:
"The jeweller has decorated her two-bedroom modern apartment in a palette of jewel-bright colours...Her home is a reflection of her love for indigenous cultures and the colours they use in traditional crafts. Pippa has worked alongside communities such as the San Bushmen of the Kalahari and the Kuna in Panama, helping them research their traditional designs to develop self-sufficiency and is known for her ethical approach to work. Her colourful home is filled with treasures collected on her travels around the globe and is a constant source of inspiration."
