Julie Vernon Mosaics

category: Ceramics   Glass   Stone   

region: Midlands   

I produce vibrant contemporary wall hung mosaics working with a mixture of materials from vitreous glass and ceramic through to natural marble and slate. I also like to incorporate individual pieces of vintage porcelain or worn down ceramic found washed ashore British beaches to give my work a greater depth, with each fragment holding a hidden history or journey of its own.
I produce mosaic panels, commissioned house numbers and personalised wedding hearts and am also showing my work in exhibitions.

Julieann Worrall Hood

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Metalwork   

region: South West   

Julieann is a graduate of the Tapestry Department, Edinburgh College of Art and is a Crafts Council Award recipient. She has developed her love of eccentric weaving into three dimensions to create lively and whimsical woven wire animals, birds and figures suitable for indoor and outdoor display.

Julieann strives to capture the essence of her subject through quick sketches translated directly into sculpture. She now lives in Wiltshire and spends hours sketching in the fields around her home and studio from where she also runs workshops and courses.

Examples of Julieann’s tapestry and sculptural forms can be found in public and private collections nationally, including the V&A. In Spring 2012 she was commissioned to design and create 50 new wire sculptures for The Conran Shop inspired by the ethos “Less is More’.

Since leaving college in 1998 I have been working solely with hand built porcelain- creating semi functional pieces. My work addresses the boundaries between function and decoration. I look at objects that are used on a daily basis; like the form of a jug and create pieces that move away from function and are more […]

Kaoru Shimada

category: Paper   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: London   

I make images on paper and fabric. My inspiration comes from my original stories and characters. I have been working as an illustrator in Tokyo for over 20 years, specializing in publishing. Since I moved to London about 3 years ago I have been exploring more with fabric as I love stitching. I am a self-taught artist. I paint on fabric, use stencil printing, stitching and applique. Beside original art pieces my collection includes: iPad/iPad mini covers, iPhone covers, digital camera covers and bags.


category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Wales   

I love experimenting with precious metals, especially silver, to create tactile, interesting pieces that invite the wearer to engage with them. I love clean, contemporary designs, often geometric and sculptural with unusual, organic surface patterns and textures. My pieces are inspired by everyday emotions and situations as well as the beautiful natural world we live […]

region: Yorkshire   

There is something very special about walking down to my garden studio, cup of tea in hand, early in the morning. Since completing my MA at the Royal College of Art I have divided my time between teaching, raising a family and continuing to make. My work is inspired by my love of nature and […]

Karen Walshe

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: South West   

I live in the lovely Devon estuary town of Topsham, which is full of seagulls and home to a host of elegant wading birds. I try to capture something of their essence in my work (textiles), which is characterized by a naivety of design. I have an MA in History of Modern Art and Design.
The eagerly awaited Avocets have become central motifs in much of my work, along with Oystercatchers and Curlews. Whilst the subjects may vary, the unifying element is the use of quality fabrics in soft dusky hues of blues, neutrals and greys. Motifs are appliquéd with free motion machine embroidery stitch, reminiscent of soft pencil sketches. I design and make all of my products at my kitchen table, listening to my favourite audio books (mainly Jane Austen) and the cry of the gulls overhead. Prices start from £10 for a tea towel.
Products are available in Panorama Gallery, Topsham, Devon.

Kasasagi Design

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   

region: South West   

My designs are usually influenced by the colours, shapes and textures of nature which I explore using the materials I have collected. These are all found, reclaimed, recycled, or second hand. It is not unusual to find me pulling things like old electric cables apart in order to use the different components. I love bringing new life to old and rejected objects or materials rather than leaving them to waste. They are a very interesting medium to work with as you won’t always find the same thing twice so can never reproduce a piece of work exactly – much like the way things are created in nature.

Kat Zahran Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South East   

I began making jewellery in 2007 and have not looked back since, setting up Kat Zahran Jewellery in 2009. My jewellery has a distinct style, mixing gold, silver, precious and semi-precious stones and oxidisation to provide pieces which are highly distinctive and modern yet extremely wearable. I am also a specialist in fine wire work for more delicate pieces.
