Alice Fox

category: Paper   Printmaking   

region: Yorkshire   

My work combines techniques from textiles and printmaking traditions, the two often combining to make abstract contemplative pieces that celebrate and carry an essence of what I experience in the natural world. I aim to draw the viewer in, invite them to look closer and perhaps notice things they might otherwise have over-looked. I work with paper and cloth as well as making use of materials gathered from the places I walk.</p>

My work ranges from large-scale installations for specific spaces to intimate framed artworks and artists’ books. Each piece develops by layering up marks and textures, building up subtle surfaces and exploring materials through the making process. I use found metal objects with tea to make marks on paper, silk and linen, making use of natural dye techniques. I set things up and watch them develop, responding to the marks that appear with further layers of print and the contoured lines of hand stitch.

Catherine Woodall

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Yorkshire   

Initially I studied engineering, followed later by art and, for me, making jewellery has been the happy combination of these two disciplines.

I studied jewellery at the Yorkshire Craft Centre for five years both during and following a Certificate for mature students course at Bradford College.

All my jewellery is handmade in my workshop atop the – often – windswept Pennines. Surrounded as I am by Emily Bronte’s ‘high waving heather’ and the green wooded valleys, it is little wonder that my work is inspired by nature. The veins of a leaf and the rain or dewdrop glistening on it are some of the details I’ve drawn down.

I work with silver and semi precious stones and am inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement in both Britain and Vienna at the turn of the last century.

Clare Caulfield

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   Printmaking   

region: Yorkshire   

I am a Saltaire based artist and printmaker.  My work is inspired by my travels to some of the world’s most beautiful cities including Paris, Venice and New York.  Working in a lively drawing style I aim to capture the excitement, life and vibrancy of each location I visit, documenting my travels through the use of sketchbooks and photographs.  On returning to my studio I then produce mixed-media paintings, original screenprints & drypoints, limited edition prints and handmade cards.  These are exhibited throughout the U.K. in regular solo and group shows.

Closer to home I have also produced a series of work capturing the rugged beauty and charm of Yorkshire’s much loved coastal towns: Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Staithes.

Dove St Pottery

category: Ceramics   

region: Yorkshire   

I am a potter making wheel-thrown ceramic tableware. I am striving to create simple, special pots of formal beauty that with daily use enhance and enrich people’s lives. My pots are at the functional end of ceramics, thinly thrown with clean lines and elegant forms.

My aim is to marry beauty with function to create a pot that is a pleasure to use. The pots are made by hand and wear that quality openly – the decoration comes directly out of the process of the making. The pots are thrown using a white stoneware clay with each colour ‘breaking’ across the surface of the pots to give a richness and depth. I am influenced by potters who look to the east for inspiration – I love the quietness and simplicity of this type of pottery. I have an MA in sculpture from the Royal College of Art.

I specialise in fabric design for personalised cushions & other items. I graduated in 2005 with 1st class honours in Art & Design at York St John. Started a family, which is where my love of children’s products came from. Since my youngest went to school, I find myself now creating surface pattern design and applying it to fabric, in particularly children’s products such as personalised cushions, plush toys and bunting amongst other things. I also love any kind of illustration, but have a passion for quirky characters!

Janet Wass

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Yorkshire   

I design and make jewellery, elegantly combining and contrasting silver with acrylic.
Having originally completed a degree in photography before gaining my MA in Metalwork and Jewellery at Sheffield Hallam University, I am keen to combine these interests within my work. I am inspired by the everyday: highlighting the detail and beauty of objects we often visually ignore through photograms. These images and patterns are transferred onto the surfaces of the silver and acrylic using photo-etching and laser-engraving.
I use the organic nature of the patterns derived from photograms as contrast to the clean regular shapes of my jewellery to create interest and elegance. All my work is polished by hand, including pieces that are laser-cut to ensure a high quality and consistent finish.
