Craft selling show Origin marked its second year as part of the London Design Festival, and its second edition based in Spitalfields Market in East London, with a successful show that was particularly strong for ceramics. WGSN-homebuildlife presents the exhibitor highlights.

Designer Clare Knox-Bentham creates bespoke wall pieces using extruded plastic. The molten plastic is drawn on sheets of glass using an industrial extrusion gun, then peeled away from its backing, resulting in a standalone curtain or three-dimensional drawing.
Ceramicist Tanya la Mantia explores the translucent properties of her specialist material, bone china, by forming the clay into thin-walled vessels and impressing nature-inspired motifs on to the interior, which then come through to the other side as subtle patterning.
