category: Enamel   Metalwork   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: East Midlands   

My memories have formed the way I think and feel and the way in which I work. The found objects I use with the metal and clay, small and insignificant, used and forgotten, are the physical aspect of work that is based on an emotional, nostalgic concept. Tools and utensils, the things we use and […]

Beca Beeby

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Ceramics   Metalwork   

region: Wales   

Though primarily a metalworker (cast iron, forged steel, copper…) recent work development has resulted me to working with porcelain – a return to ceramics. My training has spanned across the ‘Craft’ and ‘Art’ disciplines, as does my work. Experimentation is key to the development of my work, which is inspired by the livestock & plant life found in my natural environment ~ particularly the tiny details; the curl of a new shoot; the structure of a seedpod; the hipbones of a dairy cow. My concerns over intensive farming and human impact on the environment also influence what I do.

Copper Creations

category: Metalwork   

region: Wales   

Inspired by artisans on my travels, I have been designing and creating hand-punched copper lanterns and decorations for about eight years.  I take my design inspirations from art, nature, fabrics and pattern forms.  Each and every hole is punched by hand before being shaped into an exquisite lantern or decorative piece.  I am constantly experimenting with the medium and welcome commissions.

Deshca Designs

category: Metalwork   

region: North West   

I make unique copper sculptures for the home and garden, including wall hangings, fountains, water features, flowers, birds and insects. Most of my work incorporates some facet of nature, as there is an abundance of inspiration to be derived from it.

Many of my pieces are one of a kind, and I like to experiment with different techniques and ideas, so I’m always learning. I also like to flame colour my pieces, so even if making the same item, no two ever look exactly the same. I’m more than happy to work with customers to provide exactly what they require. Ultimately if the customer is happy, then I’m happy.

Frances Julie Whitelaw

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Metalwork   

region: North East   

My work is made in silver, a material that I love to use. It can be formed, polished or patterned in so many ways and complements the colours and textures next to it.
I make silver jewellery in its polished state or oxidised to create a deeply luscious dark finish and often combined with pearls. In addition to jewellery I also make silver Christmas decorations and tableware.

Iron Vein steel sculpture is the work resulting from the collaboration between artists Victoria Govan and Richard Warner.

Jan Hinchliffe McCutcheon

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Metalwork   

region: North East   

My degree in jewellery and silversmithing at Loughborough College of Art and Design in 1977 equipped me to pursue a career as a designer maker of jewellery. I aim to design jewellery with originality and a distinctive character. The soft ripple texture surface silver is a tactile feature of many pieces.

I use jewellery hand working techniques with materials such as silver, gold, gold leaf, ebony and textile. My work is exhibited in the UK at shows such as ‘Origin’ London, ‘Art in Action’ Oxfordshire and Stroud International Textiles Festival. International exhibitions have featured my jewellery in Boston, USA; South Korea; Japan; Germany; Spain; Poland and Slovakia. I have a piece of jewellery in mima (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art) International Jewellery Collection. Work is also bought by UK and overseas private collectors.

Julieann Worrall Hood

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Metalwork

Julieann is a graduate of the Tapestry Department, Edinburgh College of Art and is a Crafts Council Award recipient. She has developed her love of eccentric weaving into three dimensions to create lively and whimsical woven wire animals, birds and figures suitable for indoor and outdoor display.

Examples of Julieann’s tapestry and sculptural forms can be found in public and private collections nationally, including the V&A. In Spring 2012 she was commissioned to design and create 50 new wire sculptures for The Conran Shop inspired by the ethos “Less is More’.
