Claire Madill graduated from Emily Carr University in 2007 and has been working full-time in her east van studio ever since. Her label, heyday design, mines the past to create for the future. She takes commonplace, utilitarian vintage kitchen wares and transforms them into contemporary porcelain objects and accessories, endorsing a new perspective on their purpose and aesthetic.
Currently she is working on a custom lighting installation of her 'beaver jars' for Canoe (a high end restaurant on the 54th floor of Toronto's TD Tower in the heart of the financial district). The installation includes 92 jars all lined up and glowing!!! As a result, she is hoping to get a day or two off between now and when they ship in mid-january... yikes! Her ceramic accessories can be found at the San Francisco MOMA Mueseum Store, which has her pretty excited these days! Go Claire!
SFM happily welcomes Claire back to the show for a second year with her clever and quirky translations of objects we all know and love!
