Crowns & Coronets

region: Midlands   

Crowns & Coronets is a luxury British knitwear brand for babies and children from 0-6 years. Created by English designer Helena Hubbard, who learnt to knit from her mother as a child, each sumptuously soft garment is hand knitted and hand stitched in England by master artisans from a blend of the purest Himalayan yak down and sustainable bamboo. Our Yak Collection is imbued with influences from yesteryear such as sailor collars, waistcoats and pinafore dresses. We create timeless and classic pieces to be treasured as heirlooms fit for little princes and princesses. Meticulous craftsmanship coupled with the use of rare and noble natural fibres make our garments heirlooms to treasure. Crowns & Coronets ethically sources yak down from Tibetan herders, thereby improving the wellbeing of the nomads while preserving cultural skills and maintaining sustainable rural lifestyles.

D.A.Hart

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Midlands   

I work with hand selected hardwoods to design unique pieces of strong, elegant furniture. Each piece is created to meet the demands of modern living whilst maintaining an eye for the traditional principles of construction and design.

I’m inspired by the beauty of trees and the wonderful material they provide, the philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement and the simplicity and elegance of Art Deco.  I believe we all have an instinctive and historic affinity with wood and strive to celebrate this in my work.

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful”   William Morris  1834 – 1896.

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: London   

Since 2003, fine beading has sent me on a fabulous journey, developing colour, form and texture in my work. I continue to explore ways to combine my metal work skills with traditional beading techniques, to create contemporary and unique designs. My jewellery is made up of bold 3D forms both geometric and organic, beaded in a  myriad of colours.I use mainly 1mm glass beads to create large, textured forms and display them on silver findings. I like to work on bespoke commissions alongside selling my work privately and through crafts shows and exhibitions. I am a member of the Surrey Guild of Craftsmen and Beadworkers Guild.

Deshca Designs

category: Metalwork   

region: North West   

I make unique copper sculptures for the home and garden, including wall hangings, fountains, water features, flowers, birds and insects. Most of my work incorporates some facet of nature, as there is an abundance of inspiration to be derived from it.

Many of my pieces are one of a kind, and I like to experiment with different techniques and ideas, so I’m always learning. I also like to flame colour my pieces, so even if making the same item, no two ever look exactly the same.

I’m more than happy to work with customers to provide exactly what they require. Ultimately if the customer is happy, then I’m happy.

Individually hand cut leather items lovingly sewn by Suzanne from her home studio and studio 9 at Manchester’s Craft and Design Centre.

After completing a degree in Embroidery in Manchester, Suzanne continued to explore her love of traditional embroidery techniques such as straight stitching, French knots, appliqué and buttonhole designs which she uses to enhance the simple shapes she creates for her leather bags and accessories. Although each product is designed to be reproduced each product is individual and no two are exactly the same.

Suzanne is influenced by simple shapes and colour combinations which can be found from objects all around us. She strives to make functional, loveable items from leather and other natural materials, examples of her work can be found on her website which is constantly updated with new work. To commission something from Suzanne please contact her through her website or via email, suedevine10@hotmail.com

Diane Griffin

region: East Midlands   

After discovering a love for clay at an early age, I went on to study Ceramics at degree level and have been working with ceramics ever since.

When designing a new piece I begin with the form and often look at sculptures for inspiration.  Anish Kapoor, Jim Partridge, Andy Goldsworthy and Gordon Baldwin are just a few of that artists that I enjoy and who continue to inspire my own sculptural forms.

I use a combination of techniques to create my pieces. My vases are slip cast then individual scrolls are rolled and applied creating a decorative and practical focus for each piece. I use white earthenware clay fired to 1150ºC which achieves a clean white finish allowing a crisp contrast to the bright colours on the insides of the scrolls.

I am currently working on pieces that translate many of the techniques that I have developed over the years for my sculptures into pieces that can more readily be incorporated into the home and I also have a collection of ceramic jewellery.
