As the Crows Fly is a design business run by Bee Hayes in Fife, Scotland, specialising in handmade ceramics and illustrated home wares. ATCF produces both hand-thrown and slip cast porcelain ceramics with distinctive ranges incorporating botanical hand illustration; Japanese inspired monochrome pieces with a volcanic interior and polished exterior and polished stained porcelain vessels cast from original lathe-turned forms and found objects. Original, hand-drawn illustrations are also applied and fired in-house onto fine bone china ware, and made into tea towel which are screen printed in the UK.
With a background in Fashion Design, designing for boutique London brand Whistles, followed by work as in-house graphic designer for an international NGO Bee has come to ceramics and home ware as an ideal medium with which to see the creative process through from initial idea to finished product. This allows for unlimited scope and freedom in product development and experimentation.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like further details of product ranges or to enquire about trade prices or exhibitions.
As the Crows Fly is based at: Studio 21, Fire Station Creative, Carnegie Drive, Dunfermline, Fife, KY12 7 AN
