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.

Sarah Villeneau Ceramics

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.

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 […]

Sian Patterson

category: Ceramics   

region: Scotland   

Sian Patterson is a Glasgow-based ceramicist designing and making functional and decorative thrown stoneware. A core tableware collection is complemented by a series of one-off pieces constituting an ongoing investigation into composition, form, and glaze.

The work is characterised by a formal purity and a restrained palette of unique glazes, often combined in subtle contrasts. How each individual piece feels to hold and to use is as important as the collection’s appearance and visual coherence.

A wide range of influences and references inform the collection – from victorian pharmaceutical and preserving bottles to the still lives of Giorgio Morandi and the photography of Uta Barth. The central preoccupation is a keen sensitivity to surface, colour and light, an interest in formal groupings, and an atmosphere of familiarity.

The act of making by hand is absolutely central to Sian’s practice – every piece is wheel thrown, trimmed and glazed individually, and stamped with a makers mark and year of production.
