From the 'Hoop Collection'

"I have always been inspired by a mix of cultural influences, especially by textiles and crafts from Africa, Latin America and Asia where I used to develop collections for fashion designers."


"This specific collection was inspired from a silver bangle, ellipse shaped on the outside and round on the inside, that my grandmother found while living in Central America. In Indian culture bangles are not just write ornaments; they symbolize femininity, health and prosperity. Hoops as a circle represent strength, unity, infinity and wholeness."


"In this collection, many of the hoops can be interchanged or positioned in different places, and in different orders to create interactions between the forms and motifs. Taking them apart and hanging them in a different way provide a tactile experience as well as a decorative and creative liberty."



About Karine Hilaire

"My work blends freehand patterns with sensual forms to achieve bold and playful vessels."


" I was born in the rocky back country of the Ardèche region in France and my craft was informed by its jagged contrasting landscapes."


"My love for textures, prints and colour brought me to Paris where I began a career in fashion developing collections for designers. I later completed an artisan degree and co-founded a ceramics studio."


"I moved to London in 2015 to find a vibrant community of inspiring makers and have recently moved into a wonderful little studio in Kentish Town."


"My inspirations come primarily from crafts like basketry, batik and ikat textiles inspired from trips to India, Mexico and Asia. I enjoy combining all these influences to create boldly patterned pieces seeking to find a space between functionality and sculpture."
