Fired Earth

“At a party given by The V&A Museum I was introduced to the new and vivacious Managing Director of Fired Earth named Beverly Nielsen.

Beverley told me that she wanted to expand Fired Earth into some dynamic categories and asked if I would like to visit their HQ in Banbury to talk about furniture.

I jumped at the chance and soon found myself on a whirlwind tour of furniture makers located across Europe from The majestic Jura region of France to the pretty town of Clitheroe in Lancashire – different locations and languages but very much the same traditions of craftsmanship, quality, sustainability and attention to detail…nothing was ever rushed yet everything was always on time and beautifully made.

I created Square Peg in homage to my Arts&Crafts design heroes such as William Morris and CFA Voysey who taught us so much about enduring tradition married to new directions and I am truly proud of everyone at Fired Earth who contributed to the success of the programme – not least Beverley who was a true champion of my work.” – Nick
