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.

Claire Baker Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: South West   

Claire Baker is a ceramicist working in St Thomas Stoneware and paper clay. Her inspirations are drawn from the darker side of Victorian life, social history, theatre and circus and Grimm’s Fairy Tales.

An incredible amount of work goes into each piece. They are fired 5 times, layered with slips, glazes, decals and gold lustres to produce a distinctive patina. Teaspoons are reformed to use as handles for teacups and other mixed media is incorporated – usually vintage and metalware.

Clare Caulfield

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   Printmaking   

region: Yorkshire   

I am a Saltaire based artist and printmaker.  My work is inspired by my travels to some of the world’s most beautiful cities including Paris, Venice and New York.  Working in a lively drawing style I aim to capture the excitement, life and vibrancy of each location I visit, documenting my travels through the use of sketchbooks and photographs.  On returning to my studio I then produce mixed-media paintings, original screenprints & drypoints, limited edition prints and handmade cards.  These are exhibited throughout the U.K. in regular solo and group shows.

Closer to home I have also produced a series of work capturing the rugged beauty and charm of Yorkshire’s much loved coastal towns: Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Staithes.
