Sarah Fox

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

In the family studio beneath Exmoor’s highest moors, Sarah specialises in two styles of jewellery inspired by the natural environment.  Sharing the studio with her father, engineer and silversmith Brian O’Hara, Sarah has drawn on his technical expertise to develop unique settings for polished stones using the studio’s “re-imagined silver waste”. Organic, tactile details – from fossil to fallen leaf – inform one-off, statement pieces with accents of Art Nouveau and a nod to her textile design background.

Here, where views towards Dunkery Beacon shift endlessly in tone and shade, Sarah enjoys the perfect space in which to hand-mix the colours for her tablet range of resin and silver cast pieces. Intricately-worked journeys in tonal variation, they explore the seasonal palettes of Exmoor, from the lichens and mosses of the oak woodlands and the brooding hues of the winterhill, to springtime flora and the weather-washed tones of the summer coast.

region: South West   

Sarah Jarrett-Kerr is a Somerset based bookbinder whose love affair with books as physical objects has spanned across the last thirty years.  Recent comments about her work include ‘easy to handle’, ‘a wonderful piece of work’ and ‘I love the texture, colours and design’.

Sarah trained at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts, set up a bindery for the British School in Rome and has been bookbinding from her own studio ever since.

Whether designing a blank journal or binding a first edition with Nigerian goatskin, Sarah intimately connects the book, its binding and the people who will experience both.  Her work draws colours textures and materials together to create beautiful but practical objects that are fragile, sensuous, fresh and thrillingly tactile all at once.

Sarah Knowles Design

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Yorkshire   

I am a trained designer/maker having completed a BA (Hons) in Silversmithing and Jewellery at Loughborough in 1997. Although my life took a different direction after university, I never stopped being creative and now I have come back full time to what I love best creating handcrafted Jewellery and Wall Art.

Having set up my own label Sarah Knowles Design, I create intricate pieces made from re-found paper and other materials. Imaginatively incorporating the art of paper folding, fine stitch work and various other design/craft techniques.

These pieces are inspired by my childhood in rural North Yorkshire, along with a love of global cultures especially those of Spain, China and Japan. Within my work I explore the balance and tension created between nature, industrialisation and human existence.

Sarah Madsen Arts

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South East   

The Jewellery is inspired by nature, anything organic moves me. The way the line of a plant stem flows into the complex petals that form a flower, is an example of the influences in my work. I studied at Central St Martins College of At and Design in London, gaining a BA Hons Degree in Jewellery Design.

All Jewellery is handmade by me in my studio in Cambridgeshire, I love working with Silver and Gold, using a wide variety of techniques such as wax carving, casting forging, piecing, repousse, stone setting,sheet fabrication to produce high quality work. If the work is not in stock, please allow 3-5 weeks turnaround. This allows for ordering, making, casting and hallmarking.

Custom orders are welcomed.

category: Paper   

region: North East   

Based in a studio in the heart of rural Northumberland, I make artist’s books and work in cut paper, taking inspiration from the countryside around me. Much of my work begins with text, often incorporating snippets of poetry and stories. I handmake all my pieces, from unique, large-scale sculptural pieces which are entirely hand-cut and […]

Sarah Villeneau Ceramics

category: Ceramics   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: Yorkshire   

Inspired by nature, I try to capture the essence of the organic in my work. I create sculptural vessel forms and abstract sculptures. The former capture the essence of form and movement with satin matt glaze surfaces; the sculpture is more visceral, formless and textured, with the occasional inclusion of “alien” objects – nails, pre-fired ceramics etc. Having followed a number of art courses over my adult life, the most formative was the MA in Studio Ceramics completed in 2014. This marked a turning point in the direction of my work alongside much more honed technical skills in making and glazing. Vessel-based work is slabbuilt over a former with pinched additions; the sculpture is created by pummelling and pinching textured clay slabs to form abstract shapes which are then added to.

Sheena Spacey Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: South West   

My works are primarily hand built ceramics, and are inspired from storybooks, wanderings, small interesting tales and nature. Always following my heart, I love seeing things in a simple way, inspired by folk art and fables. I interpret my imaginary scenes into clay, frequently using either porcelain or porcelain paperclay into little narrative scenes on hilltops (some with hidden secret additions inside), folkstyle figures using leaves and foliage as decoration and sometimes with some mixed media additions, and hand made ceramic buttons and decorative hearts. Items range in scale from hand made ceramic buttons up to individual narrative sculptural pieces.

region: London   

My jewellery collection is inspired by a seaside theme – the feel of a pebble in the hand – a smooth texture on the skin – a shape that implies the weathering of storm and tide. I love the beach-combing involved in their collection…So many women share a love for shoreline treasure! However, although I’m […]
