Art in Cirencester 1: Mirjami Design

Laura Mirjami
Mirjami Design can be found in the Brewery Court Cirencester...

Hidden away in the alley behind the Brewery Arts Centre and underneath the Cafe, lies a shop filled up with trinkets and larger decorative pieces. Pumpkin poofs are set out on top of each other a bit like giant pin cushions. Mirjami Design is the studio and shop of Laura Mirjami, a Finn who came to England and decided to set up a business dealing in exclusive handmade items.


The smaller items would appeal to any youngster who ventured past. To a child, seeing small bears, penguins or mice in ornate and tiny scale might make them think of teddies in miniature! In fact, these are dense paper weights that are deceptively heavy.



These lovingly prepared items are ideal presents to adults in an office who don’t get much

time to embrace the child within! Rustic and homely, the well presented pieces have an element about them that makes you want to squeeze their tiny faces!  

With general lines of products available, bespoke commissions can also be crafted. Laura’s work sells mostly outside of Cirencester, but accompanied by her dog Pixie, the studio offers a breath of fresh air to any worn out shopper who wants to see something less commercial and more unique.

Quirky items such as book marks in the form of different animals such as foxes are light enough to fit in the post and sufficiently cost effective to allow most to leave with a memento.


The Studio
In combination with a cup of coffee and a wonder around the New Brewery Arts, Mirjami Design grasps the spirit of the centre and may well ignite your imagination when it next comes to buying a gift!
