Curiousa & Curiousa design and manufacture hand-blown glass lighting from their Derbyshire workshop and have a showroom in Chelsea, London. Esther Patterson, their designer and founder, has a real passion for all things British-made and for true craftsmanship, so is proud to be part of an emergence of traditional British skills.
Esther launched her business in 2010 having graduated as a mature student with a first class degree in Decorative Arts. Her first studio was a caravan parked on the family drive. At university she initially specialised in fabric and wallpaper design and slip cast bone-china table lamps. She would spend many hours experimenting – piecing together different cast forms in various formations. She was then given an opportunity to work with a glass blower and experienced a eureka moment.
Our pendants, chandeliers and bespoke creations can be seen hanging proudly in Harvey Nichols, Jamie Oliver’s, Empire Theatre Liverpool, London Hilton Bankside and many more worldwide locations
