sarah watts jewellery

category: Glass   Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Wales   

I am a self-taught designer-maker creating richly detailed and decorative jewellery using glass, sterling silver, wire and linen in my home studio in Wales.
I use the ancient Lampwork technique to make detailed opaque glass beads, crafting each bead by hand from molten glass in a hot flame. Each bead begins with a vision of the shape and decorative style I am aiming for. However, the detailed choices of colour and pattern are in response to the dynamic nature of the process of glass reacting with flame. I employ traditional silversmithing techniques and steel wire bound with waxed linen cord to create finished pieces.
My work is influenced by my love of colour, decoration and texture. My inspirations range from illustrated Medieval manuscripts and Ottoman empire ceramics to 1950’s fabric design and traditional Indian textiles. I create richly coloured decorative jewellery which acknowledges these historical influences.

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.

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.
