BETHAN GRAY

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Life -

The quirky and inim­itable Bri­tish de­signer’s work is fu­eled by her pas­sion for lux­u­ri­ous nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, matched with an im­pres­sive knowl­edge of crafts­man­ship. Here, she gives BAZAAR an exclusive peek into her world. Cre­ative aes­thetic? I love work­ing with nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als like leather, mar­ble, and solid wood com­bined with de­tailed pro­duc­tion tech­niques to cre­ate pieces that are warm, con­tem­po­rary, el­e­gant, and time­less. An in­spir­ing des­ti­na­tion? Am just back from a trip to In­dia, and while I was there, I fell com­pletely in love with Samode Haveli in Jaipur. It has the most ex­quis­ite jewel-like in­te­ri­ors, which have in­tri­cate de­tail­ing and amaz­ing crafts­man­ship. The foun­da­tion of your de­signs? My de­signs are rooted to both tra­di­tional Welsh cul­ture and craft as well as to geo­met­ric pat­terns and the use of light found in the East.
