category: Printmaking   

region: Midlands   

I graduated in 1997 with a degree in textiles and illustration. My work is based around the theme of both architecture and interiors. The main inspiration for the ways in which I develop my techniques, processes and use of colour comes from the 1950’s textile prints and interior design. My interest in the 1950’s has […]

region: Midlands   

I make small edition screenprints of colourful subjects that raise a smile. Animals and plants are a main theme, with a nod to mid-century design and a Scandinavian style. All of my prints are designed and printed by hand. I begin with a pen and ink drawing, which I make a stencil from for the […]

Ruth Lyne

category: Glass   Jewellery and Silverware   

region: East Midlands   

I have always been intrigued by the natural colours and textures of the sea shore, by the wide horizons and the surface of the cliffs. Fusing glass with metal leaf at temperatures of over 800 degrees allows me to create permanent forms inspired by memories of the coast.

I am also interested in the visual language used in abstract painting and place vertical and horizontal elements to instill a sense of calm and balance in the image. I don’t try to replicate the natural world but to create images that evoke a range of feelings and maybe memories, in the viewer and in me.  Although I am inspired by the coast, I make all my work in my studio in rural Northamptonshire, a very long way from the sea.

Ruth Packham

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Wales   

My background is as a Fine Artist, graduating from what was Newcastle Polytechnic in 1992. Since 1994 I have been living in the wilds of West Wales where I have had 2 children. I have always loved fabric and when my daughter was tiny, 1995 I took a screen printing class at my local Arts Centre. I have been printing since then, inspired by the patterns of nature, creating bold colourful images. Five years ago I made my first piece of felt and am now in awe of wool and its potential. Three years ago I made my first needle felt creature and am addicted! Birds are a current theme.
I also machine applique and make one off sewn items.

Sally Reilly

category: Ceramics   

region: South East   

My work is a celebration of the everyday experience of eating and drinking, and of private and shared moments. My love of cooking and good food is central to my work. I design and throw ranges of tableware for everyday use, small collections of pots for more ceremonial moments and individual pieces.

I was born in Ireland but trained in Paris in an Anglo/Japanese tradition. This early influence is evident in my work but I am also interested in the pure shapes of Modernism. Alongside my work in series I continue to experiment with form and technique, sometimes adding non-ceramic elements. Most pieces are high fired stoneware with classic oriental glazes but I also use brightly coloured slips on earthenware and stoneware under a transparent glaze.

Sally’s Shed

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: Midlands   

I specialise in hand-painting street scenes and individual buildings, shops and churches onto wood, allowing the beauty and character of the wood to complement my art work.
My inspiration comes from the buildings and architecture of Lichfield, and also my garden, where I design and create my products in my little brick built shed: my creative haven.

The wood I use is either donated by friends and family, or found in the ‘unloved’ section at local timber yards. Each piece is unique.

region: South West   

Because everything I do starts with drawing, I often arrive at my studio with armfuls of blossom, roses or leaves I’ve gathered from the garden or woodland and sit down and draw.

My lovely print studio is based in North Devon where I create bespoke interior textile products, fabrics, wall-coverings and accessories using traditional printmaking and craft skills, combined with experimental digital technology using the very best materials sourced in the U.K. wherever possible.

My designs have been commissioned to create trays and rugs and have twice been shortlisted for the British Design Awards.
