We remake the damaged pieces of map into fabulous gifts and accessories; perfect for people who value British history and provenance. We are often asked how we print the maps onto silk; We don’t! All our products are made from the genuine maps printed by the military during the 1940s and 1950s. We produce a wide range of items, from greetings cards with pin badge and piece of genuine map, to limited edition cushions, and can make bespoke items using parts of maps that mean something to the recipient.

Imagine North

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: Scotland   

I am an Artist and maker. I use my sewing machine the way a painter uses a brush. Each line is guided by my hand. I create small 2 and 3 dimensional pieces in thread. Each piece is unique. They are poetic moments, a visual form of Haiku. Dream like images, contemplative, quiet, devoid of detail, suggestive of a narrative. I studied sculpture and Fine Art at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen and have a BA (Hons) and a MA Fine Art. My subject is the idea of North. My work is influenced by the wilder places, by poetry and prose. I work from my small studio within the beautiful Cairngorm National Park in the Scottish Highlands. Unique embroidered artworks from £25.

Isabel K-J Denyer

category: Ceramics   

region: North East   

My thrown stoneware pots are reduction fired in a gas kiln. Form and function are integral to the work and my objective is to make pots to be used, cherished and cooked in and to enhance the presentation of food.
The ripples of water as it eddies and swirls around objects fascinate me as do marks on pebbles, lichen and stonemason’s chisel marks on Yorkshire barns. These are represented by imprints and sgraffitto and with the three dot ‘Cintamani’ motif are on-going inspirations.

J&D Field Contemporary Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North West   

John and Dawn Field have worked together since graduating in the late 1980’s.
They collaborate on several jewellery ranges. In one, stencils are rolled into silver, then, rather than making matching partners, one earring will have a vividly coloured stone and the other will have some brass decoration.
John also works on one-off pieces. His treatment of the richly coloured natural materials give them a timeless and sometimes mystical feel. The jewellery often has its own stand or lives in its own box.
Meanwhile, Dawn draws on her Fine Art background, using strong imagery including mythical creatures such as Pegasus.
