Louise Cottey

category: Fashion Accessories   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   Textiles - Clothing   

region: South West   

I find weaving to be an endlessly fascinating craft – watching how the different colours and yarns interact in the warp and weft, or playing with the structure of the cloth to create a new texture or pattern is something I will never tire of.
My aim is to create hand woven textiles that are equally attractive to the hand as to the eye. Textiles are a part of our everyday lives from a christening shawl, a comforting blanket to an elegant shawl, so it is important to enjoy them.

region: Midlands   

I am a wire artist based in Staffordshire. I produce 2D and 3D wire drawings of everyday objects incorporating thread in my work to add colour. The focus of my work is the line of an object, it’s this that I find the most interesting about everyday objects and is so often missed within the […]

Louise Hall

category: Ceramics   

region: Wales   

Louise’s pieces show the fragility and unpredictability of porcelain. Subverting traditional methods of production, by deconstructing the constructed, has resulted in a range of warped, manipulated and beaten forms, producing imperfect lines, undulating curves and interrupted contours. The work varies from the mildly distorted to the decidedly collapsed.
Working with a mixture of textured porcelain enables Louise to pick up subtle variations, which are explored with oxides and other coloured glazes. By thinking not only of clay, but fabric also, she is “re-inventing the seam of ceramics with the invisible stitch.” The joins are not covered over or hidden, but made to catch the eye and question the piece’s construction.

Louise McLaren

category: Paper   Printmaking   

region: Scotland   

I create delicate, intricately patterned images filled with romantic, uplifting and inspiring sentiments and use these to make extra special, handcrafted gifts to give to your nearest and dearest! Each design begins life as a pencil drawing which I cut by hand, with a scalpel. This process fills each image with character and idiosyncrasies that cannot be digitally replicated. I also produce screen prints in limited edition runs.

Lucy Campbell

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

My name is Lucy and I am a trained silversmith and jeweller based in Lyme Regis, Dorset. Since graduating from University in 2005, I have set up my own workshop and small business at home, making and selling my work.
My main source of inspiration comes from the beach and the sea. I like to spend time wandering around the beach collecting found objects and taking photos to inform my work. I have a particular fascination with surface textures found in this environment.
I generally work in silver (sterling, 925), however more recently I have started taking commissions in gold. All work is handmade by myself from scratch and each piece has had many hours hard work, love and care gone into its creation!
