Fascinated by the minute and delicate, I use a variety of traditional and contemporary jewellery making techniques, combining precious and natural materials embellished with vintage finds. From dainty studs to tumbling neckpieces, I enjoy creating intriguing, eclectic and feminine jewellery, inviting the […]

Julia Wright

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North West   

The soft forms of weather worn pebbles, the repeated structure of moss and lichen growth and patterns in clusters of barnacles, inspire my jewellery. I use combinations of hand-pierced and domed silver and copper with added textile details to create wearable pieces that echo these shapes. The contrast between the textures of metal and crochet/felt fibres enables me to explore the tactile qualities of each material and I enjoy the very different processes involved in making each element.

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 […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]
