Opening Hours

The GLUCKSMAN Little Interview

This week we hear from Lily Corcoran, Designer and partipant in the Glucksman's Craft and Design Fair 2015.


Lily Corcoran: 13 November 2015

What are you reading?
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.

Favourite museum?
The Victoria and Albert Museum, London. I could spend days there.

Best performance?
Sigur Ros at Berlin Festival 2012 and every time I see Peter Broderick live seems better than the last.

What is your most treasured possession?
My engagement ring, which my husband helped to design and is based on my artwork.

What work(s) of art inspire you?
The work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, William Morris and my friend the Scottish artist Jim Wilson who illustrate with such beauty, detail and precision.

A lightbulb moment?
My husband had an accident and had surgery in hospital a month before our wedding last year. It changed the way I see the world. People forget that the things that are most important in our lives are the people in them.

Guilty pleasure?
Dark chocolate and coffee.

What would you like to be doing right now?
Learning more about where I call home.
