Ed Kluz is an artist, designer, illustrator and printmaker. His interests lie in the historical objects, buildings, landscapes and folklore of Britain. His collages, scraperboards and paintings reimagine the traces of the past through contemporary eyes and means. He has a particular interest in lost buildings and landscapes. At the core of his work lies a sense of English Romanticism.
We have worked on this short film to describe his work, inspirations, working practises and his collaboration with the St Jude’s Gallery.
The work he produces is stunning, in the great tradition of mid 20th century British art.
Congratulations are due to purveyors of fine and splendid things WhippetGrey who this year have received a Royal appointment from the Duke of Edinburgh.
A fine achievement considering he has handed out less the one hundred in his entire royal career.
Nicola and Dominic Owen opened their beautifully laid out shop Old Amersham, Buckinghamshire in 2011, specialising in quirky gifts and homeware.
They have kept me busy shooting their catalogues over the last five years, so I am also honoured that Royal eyes have gazed my work as well.
It was a calm and relaxing day spent in Rachel Vosper’s boutique candle store, even through we were in the heart of Knightsbridge.
She was preparing for Christmas and the detoxing New Year with the creation of her artisan crafted scented candles.
Commissioned by Homes & Gardens magazine, I look forward to heading back soon to get some candle refills.
Back in September, I had a glamorous shoot for Tatler in the beautiful Yorkshire market town of Malton.
After a relaxing night staying in the Talbot hotel, we then photographed the owners Tom and Alice Naylor-Leyland and their baby boy.
It was a lovely day spent with our charming hosts at the hotel, at home and in the town.
In the seasonal depths of winter last year I came knocking on the garlanded door of crafter Helen Bottrill who runs her business Kindred Rose from her back garden shed in East Devon.
The fairy lights were already twinkling in the morning mist and as the electric heater had been switch on a couple of hours before it was very cosy inside, while Helen was working hard on creating her Christmas collection.
I felt most at home while we discussed the challenges & pleasures of shed working, the beauty of Devon and over some lovely lunch time soup Helen finally encouraged me to embrace the joys of social media.
Thank you Helen!
Good Housekeeping magazine commissioned me for a great day in the studio, to photograph some inspiring women with some wonderful stories as to why this Christmas will be so special to them.
It was an all day party on the shoot, and an enjoyable day was had.

Ole Hansen is a Norwegian living in London creating the most exquisite Smoked Salmon, the fourth generation of fish smokers in his family using the traditional process past down from his great-grandfather.
His smoke house is no more than a brick lean-to behind an old factory, in the borough of Hackney but his work is sold to some of the finest restaurants in London.
From tasting it I can vouch that it’s a gastronomic pleasure!
The feature is out now in this month’s Homes & Gardens magazine.
It’s that time of year already when those peparations for the Christmas season are almost upon us.
This year I have been busy working for Country Living magazine with Sarah Moore on a monthly series of crafting makes at her home in West Sussex.
This is part three in a year long series and we have now reached the December issue.
I think it’s now time for a Mince Pie!

I found myself last month in the South London warehouse and then showroom of Chesney’s, renowned for their splendid fireplaces and wood burners.
Paul Chesney set up his business in 1984 after discovering a Victorian fireplace in a skip, it ignited a passion that now sells fireplaces around the globe.
