Cathy Hilton Artisan

category: Paper   

region: South West   

I produce illustrated sculptures. Images are drawn, cut out and reassembled in to a three dimensional form.
I work with a very tough, hand-made paper that is strong enough to be structural, and has a charming texture and tone.
I seek to provide moments of joy, so humour, love and surprise are recurrent themes and I relish the expressions of delight that my work causes.
As an illustrator I am self-taught since O level. I have a degree in Industrial Design which contributes to the structural element of my work.
I’m drawn to help people express their appreciation for others, so there’s great tenderness in this work.
I generally start from the emotion I wish a piece to evoke, and design from there.

Charmian Harris

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

Charmian works with gold in a way that celebrates its softness and its warm, rich colour. She often combines silver with gold, even using silver alone or in combination with stones and beads.  She selects these stones for their shapes and colours rather than for their technical perfection.

Charmian’s jewellery is made to be worn daily, to be cherished and, with the passage of time, to become integral to the personality of its owner.

Cheryl Steventon Glass

region: South West   

I make characterful glass and natural stone sculptures inspired by my native Cornwall. I know I’ve got a piece right when it develops its own personality and thanks to using natural stones each piece is unique. My little boats and cottages have travelled as far as Canada, America and Australia.

At Chipp Designs we make furniture, specialising in curving wood.

Our business has come about as a natural progression of the people that we are and where we have come from – combining such diverse areas of study as 3d sculpting and geology!

chloe michell jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

I make delicate jewellery from silver, gold and gemstones. I combine precious metals, stones and some oxidisation of the silver to create contrast, incorporating small stone set granulations in my designs to add another level of detail.
I never compromise on quality and work hard to create an intended organic, slightly irregular feel to my pieces, with my jewellery having a delicate human handprint on it.
My work is inspired by the North Cornwall coast line where I focus on the irregularities in shapes from pebbles, small details from rock pools and the contrast of the slate and quartz inclusions.
After graduating from Truro College with a BA in Silversmithing and Jewellery with a First Class degree I continue to expand my knowledge of my discipline and will be studying the MA in Contemporary Craft this coming year at Plymouth College of Art and Design.

Chris Barnes

category: Ceramics   

region: North West   

Chris Barnes makes his pottery at his studios in Cumbria and Argyll.

The Stoneware comprising a range of bowls, plates, mugs, jugs, vases etc. is thrown using a kickwheel and completed with various high fired glazes. He formulates his own glazes using a variety of minerals to produce a rich colour response combined with a very durable surface. Each of the pots is unique as a result of the entire making process. First the clay is hand thrown on the wheel or slabbed to produce the forms. After the first firing the glaze is applied by hand. Finally careful control of the kiln atmosphere during the second firing brings out the character of the ware, its colours and durable finish.
