The zen-like calligraphy design of the ‘Paper and Stone” rug collection are the result of a collaboration between designers Young & Battalglia and British Photo artist Michael Banks The designs derived from ink, paint and sculptural inspirations to produce unique expressive rug designs that are artworks in themselves. Artist Quote: “My Artwork is all photo-based, largely abstractions and details from the world that surrounds us, and includes constructed symmetries and one-off moments that catch my eye. I strongly believe in trying to push to the limit what is artistically possible with a camera… new technology, such as smartphones and tablets have become the way in which our daily reality is now recorded, which means that photography with a camera is liberated from that role, and can truly have its potential maximised as a means to make Art.” Michael Banks

My name is Lorraine Aaron. I’m a professional artist with a background in making art for public places. I gained my degree in Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Scotland and also studied at The School of the Art Institute in Chicago followed by a period spent studying in Florence. Over the past 20 years I have worked as a sculptor, painter, public artist and gallery artist as well as teaching contemporary arts practice and running a successful art consultancy business.
Making work for public places has given me an obsessive interest in art, interiors and architecture and how the combination of these can alter the places where we live and work and contribute to our health and wellbeing. I am passionate about putting together intriguing objects and unexpected materials to create inspiring, adventurous interiors.
I set up Curious Egg in 2015 with the help of my husband Roddy. We love visiting new places and through our regular travels off the beaten track, we often explore hidden studios and local artisan makers and entrepreneurs.
I’m constantly on the hunt for fine crafted objects, interesting limited edition artworks and tactile, characterful homewares. I enjoy uncovering and sharing the fascinating stories they tell.
Curious Egg is my little corner of the internet to share ideas and conversations about interiors and art as well as some of my most interesting product finds. My aim is to bring art and interiors together in a relaxed and imaginative way by offering a small, carefully curated and ever changing range of beautiful and interesting products that will help you to craft your home and celebrate your individuality. If you are looking for something particularly special or that is completely unique to you, I also offer a bespoke sourcing service. I can often source unusual items or commission a piece on your behalf through my extensive network of fellow artists, designers and craftspeople across Scotland, the UK and far reaches of Europe. If for some reason I can’t source or commission it, I may be able to make it for you.
