region: North East   

My extraordinary objective is to realise the necessities and requirements that would be involved in ‘fairy life’: to provide everything a fairy would demand during its daily existence. I have named these ‘Fairy Aiding Inventions’, invented by ‘Brain’ (me). They are theoretically functional items for the mildly eccentric. I try to express a sense of […]

Samantha Robinson

category: Ceramics   

region: East Midlands   

Samantha Robinson works with a subtle combination of porcelain, metals and textiles. Using the porcelain’s purity as a base and inspiration from textures, tags and the ‘everyday ordinary’, Samantha adds a subtle stitch, a hint of colour or a glint of metal, drawing our attention to what is often overlooked.

The processes involved are slip casting, hand building, stitch and embossing. This blend of techniques and materials provides a tactile and intriguing range of jewellery and interior pieces. Samantha is an accomplished international designer maker and tutor, working on freelance projects that include producing work for exhibitions, retail outlets, commissions and delivering workshops.

Sarah D Smith Fine Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Midlands   

I have a Jewellery BA from Middlesex University and I work in silver (gold to order), gemstones and pearls with the colour and texture of the gems influencing my designs. I source only the best gems from around the world and combine these with exacting craftsmanship and attention to detail.

My pieces are very wearable but out of the ordinary (comments from the public at exhibitions have been that they love it because it is so different!).

I want to bring more colour and a touch of luxury to everyday wear.

region: South West   

I am, and always have been, a bit of a collector: not of high value things that you have to be careful with. Just little, curious, quirky things that are everywhere in everybody’s everyday life. I just like to pick them up, look at them and put them in my pocket. Then I like to […]

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.

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 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.
