Since graduating in 2011, I worked full-time for ceramicist Lisa Hammond. The time I spent working within a busy studio pottery gave me a real appreciation of the skill behind making functional pots. I now work from a pottery studio in rural Devon, Kigbeare Studios & Gallery, where I create my own range of slipware. […]

Working in porcelain I strive to create simple and tactile forms. Drawing and mark making is an essential step in my making process and I constantly strive to recreate decorative techniques from paper and into a ceramic palette.

I use decorative techniques that are only partly controllable, studying the use of alternative tools for decoration. Using cotton as a tool, the decoration can only ever be guided, meaning that each twist of the thread will create an entirely unique pattern onto paper and clay. Using these delicate methods of decoration I create unique, tactile objects that entice the viewer to explore further and to interact with ceramic objects.

I am currently developing a range that uses imagery from the landscape that surrounds me, be it the 15th & 16th Century buildings, the local park or even the coastline.

betty mo

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: North West   

Textiles, colour and pattern are my passions. I design and make a range of cushions and home accessories inspired by a childhood spent rock pooling, collecting shells on the sandy beaches of West Wales, walking through enchanted woods of bluebells and growing flowers and veg in the garden alongside my parents. As such, nature in its infinite variety features heavily in my work.

Over the years I’ve amassed a fine collection of buttons, ribbons and vintage fabrics that have found a home in my craftwork alongside liberty prints and more recent fabric finds. I use various techniques including appliqué, machine and hand embroidery to conjure up magic and character in my colourful creations.

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Paper   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: South East   

My work is inspired by stories, poems, over-hearings and memories. Re-using materials, especially textiles, is an integral part of my work. I like to feel that they have ‘lived a little’ with their own story to tell showing signs of ageing and how they have been treated or, perhaps, mistreated. Every discarded object is a […]

Bev Milward

category: Ceramics   

region: South West   

Hand built porcelain landscapes and figures influenced by the environment, personal events and the nature of porcelain itself.
Shapes and forms of interest found in miniature landscapes, architecture, the circus and 17th Century British pottery are reinterpreted and combined in the clay to form a unique and distinctive style.
Imagery and themes are reworked and revisited but no piece is repeated. The last piece informs the next and has evolved as a continuous visual diary now spanning 11 years.
Each element or symbol has a personal history or a meaning and my maker’s mark, in the shape of a key, can be found somewhere on each piece.
The work is entirely hand built from porcelain, decorated with on glaze enamels, slips, lustres and more recently rare vintage lithographs.

Birgitte Bruun Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South East   

I make a range of Contemporary Silver Jewellery, including bangles, necklaces and earrings. From my Danish roots I am influenced by Scandinavian Design; my pieces are simple, contemporary in design, timeless and accessible to wear.

I like to produce contrasts in my work, whether by texturing, oxidising or milling the Silver. I particularly enjoy shaping the metal by forging and planishing and many of my pieces involve these techniques. I also include interesting semi-precious stones in my designs and highlights of gold. My full collection and examples of commissions can be seen on my website.

I learnt the art of Silver Jewellery making through various evening classes and City & Guild Courses. I am a member of Cambridge Open Studios and participate in July each year.

Commissions welcome and my Studio can be visited throughout the year by appointment.

Biscuit Canvas Art

category: Other   Printmaking   

region: North West   

We create handmade personalised name plaques and canvases. My background is Illustration, and I started making these canvases a few years ago after wanting something different for my walls at home. This then progressed into name plaques – an ideal gift for special occasions, like friends having babies! The Illustrations are all my designs and are printed onto natural cotton canvas, folded and attached to either thin wood (plaques) or a wooden deep edged frame (canvases).

I am a textile designer, specialising in woven fabrics. I graduated at Middlesex and Portsmouth and am currently based at Wimbledon Art Studios.
I have an affinity for colour and texture and love experimenting with a variety of different forms of media and taking inspiration from the natural world to the artists and designers of the Art Nouveau period. I take great pleasure in drawing together my inspirations and combining them with different loom threading techniques to build unique designs and wearable art pieces.
