Natasha Gowdy

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: South West   

I have been designing and making furniture for over 20 years and I love the challenge of creating pieces that will stand the test of time, both physically and aesthetically.  Having studied design at university I went on to work for a furniture maker and finally to setting up my own workshop some 15 years ago. I work to commission as well as making limited editions for sale and exhibiting at galleries and craft shows.  I use predominantly British hardwoods, in particular oak and ash, and these fantastic native timbers are a joy to use with their strength and infinite grain patterns.

My designs are fundamentally modern with clean, simple lines and subtle details that bring the piece together – a gentle curve, a rounded corner or some finely cut dovetails on a drawer. I draw inspiration from nature and simply from the intrinsic qualities of the wood. Over the years I have learnt how to bring out the best in this remarkable and sustainable material by creating furniture that is hopefully beautiful and most definitely useful.

Navdeep Dhiman

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: South East   

Navdeep Dhiman is a mixed media textile designer who specialises in making products from thread, resin, hand dyed plastic and handmade bead. The transparent resin pieces are hung on a nylon thread so light can shine through the striking colours and shapes, which make it ideal for hanging in front of windows, as room dividers or on a wall. Each of these pieces is unique and come in different range of colours, shapes, sizes and textures.

Recently, she has started to experiment with laser cutting to produce patterns that are not possible with resin on recycled card and perspex.

nbNg is the collection of fold-formed work made by designer-maker Nettie Birch of Ng Jewellery. Very different from her other jewellery and born from a desire to explore how metals move naturally rather than forcing shapes upon them, the pieces reflect organic forms and sweeping shapes. Using the maleability of copper and, more unusually the strength and lightness of aluminium, large pieces have been created which can be scaled for more everyday wear.

Nick Hammond

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Wales   

I am primarily a wood turner based in South Wales. I am self taught and take my inspiration from anywhere from the piece of wood that I’m using to architecture, or from other pieces of furniture that I see. At the moment I am concentrating on making table and floor lamps as I really love making something that is both functional and looks amazing.  I use local hardwoods from the very local area or at worst within about an 80 mile radius. I like to be able to support my local wood store as well as keeping the risks of importing timber at bay.

As a designer, maker and thinker; I am interested in value systems, with specific reference to architecture. I recognise a beauty in weathered, scratched and used surfaces within architecture. Initially stemming from aged agricultural architecture; and now looking into our relationships with architecture, through the markings and textures found within cities. I work to produce […]
