I always find wedding presents really difficult, particularly for close friends. The wedding list feels a bit impersonal and it’s an occasion when I want to give something special and uniquely personal. Pip has made several pieces for me now. Each one of them we have designed together using colours and shapes chosen specifically for the individuals. They have all been gifts I have loved giving (and found it hard to part with!); but most important they are all pieces that are truly treasured, are constantly admired and talked about and are exactly what I wanted – personal and special objects for people I really care about.
