Sculptor and artist William Farr explains how he uses a cup of coffee as a break from his creative and busy life.


William Farr is an artist living and working from his home in Islington, London. Describing himself as a bit of magpie, he collects objects on his days out and creates pieces of art from mundane materials most people would walk past on the street. Having studied fashion design at Westminster, William has gone on to design sets for Liberty London, GQ and Vanity Fair.

 Describing coffee as a “symbol of giving,” William says there is something as humans we gain from sharing.
