NAME TO KNOW MYER HALLIDAY
The Edinburgh-based ceramicist has collaborated with Heal’s, translating his monochrome patterns into textiles and more
How did the departure from ceramics feel? After working with clay for so many years, it was a nice change to experiment with my patterns across alternative materials. Do you think the designs work differently? Until now, I’ve been concentrating on how my ideas work on 3D objects, so it’s been really interesting playing with the perception of a flat pattern on multi-dimensional surfaces. Why do you work only in
monochrome? When I started out, my primary interest was the shape of objects and the interaction between surface and form, but this year will see the introduction of new colours, patterns and ways of working, so watch this space! (myerhalliday.co.uk; heals.com).
