Mummybird Pretties

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: South East   

Notably with a vintage feel, I make pretty personalised/quote necklaces, floral bracelets and bobby pins offered in vintage tins that I’ve found along my travels. I like to use as many medias as I can and love the romance of vintage and bygone days and this is in some of my pieces. I like to use extracts from period dramas such as Pride and Prejudice. I teach basic jewellery and themed jewellery making classes at a local college occasionally and have a weekly pitch on the market within the city of Cambridge.

Navdeep Dhiman

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: South East   

Navdeep Dhiman is a mixed media textile designer who specialises in making products from thread, resin, hand dyed plastic and handmade bead. The transparent resin pieces are hung on a nylon thread so light can shine through the striking colours and shapes, which make it ideal for hanging in front of windows, as room dividers or on a wall. Each of these pieces is unique and come in different range of colours, shapes, sizes and textures.

Recently, she has started to experiment with laser cutting to produce patterns that are not possible with resin on recycled card and perspex.

Paper, Paint & Clay Studio

category: Ceramics   Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   

region: North West   

I make wall sculptures out of drift wood branches, ceramic bowls and platters wrapped in papier-mâché and ceramic collages that hint at a story. I love combining different textures to create very tactile pieces. My work is influenced by the weatherworn surfaces of the Manx landscape, the coastline, and my love of the sea, then wrapped with papier-mâché. The papier-mâché is a wrapping of love! It’s a memory of my sister and I, who with great care and glee unwrapped the Christmas decorations. These wonderful jewels had been so carefully folded in old newspaper ‘skins’, now my papier-mâché skins! My repeatedly worked surfaces of clay are under constant revision, referencing the endless remaking of the shoreline, then decorated with oxides, under glazes, glazes and gold lustre.

Paula Powell Original Artwork and Handmade Cards

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   

region: North West   

Paula Powell Original Artwork and Handmade Cards offers products with three aspects: Growing – artwork and accessories for children ; Living – artwork for the home; Loving – keepsakes and stationery for celebrations. My work originates from a love of memories associated with garments, fabrics and images. Fragments of lives, histories held in items often thrown away. This includes children’s clothes; the fabrics, prints and memories they hold.

My range includes canvases, framed artwork, hangings, memory boxes, pomanders, cards and stationery. Applique techniques, hand and free motion embroidery combine with paper, wax and new, painted or recycled fabrics and garments. Ribbons, buttons, found objects and vintage lace are firm favourites. Stitch brings it all together by adding names, dates or messages to create a unique, personal gift.

Rana Cullimore

category: Glass   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: South West   

I have been creating mosaic art for many years as a hobby. My first heart shaped mosaic came to life when I wanted to make something from a chipped dinner plate that belonged to my Grandparents to remember them by. As well as using the traditional materials of recycled china and colourful mosaic tesserae my love of the sea and beach combing has also influenced my work.

Some pieces have a coastal theme using pebbles, driftwood and shells. I also incorporate glass beads which is another fascination of mine. The nature of the materials I use on my mosaics makes each piece individual and unique. All the pieces are designed and handmade by me in my home….far away from the sea!

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: North East   

My extraordinary objective is to realise the necessities and requirements that would be involved in ‘fairy life’: to provide everything a fairy would demand during its daily existence. I have named these ‘Fairy Aiding Inventions’, invented by ‘Brain’ (me). They are theoretically functional items for the mildly eccentric. I try to express a sense of […]

Sarah Villeneau Ceramics

category: Ceramics   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: Yorkshire   

Inspired by nature, I try to capture the essence of the organic in my work. I create sculptural vessel forms and abstract sculptures. The former capture the essence of form and movement with satin matt glaze surfaces; the sculpture is more visceral, formless and textured, with the occasional inclusion of “alien” objects – nails, pre-fired ceramics etc. Having followed a number of art courses over my adult life, the most formative was the MA in Studio Ceramics completed in 2014. This marked a turning point in the direction of my work alongside much more honed technical skills in making and glazing. Vessel-based work is slabbuilt over a former with pinched additions; the sculpture is created by pummelling and pinching textured clay slabs to form abstract shapes which are then added to.

SOBU (Sonja Bucherer)

category: Fashion Accessories   Mixed Media and Recycled   Textiles - Clothing   

region: London   

I’m a north London based designer/maker. My speciality is mixing new and recycled materials, combining different patterns and textures to create highly individual pieces. For the past 13 years I have worked as a textile designer (appliqué and embroidery) for two international exhibiting studios. My designs have sold to high street brands as well as exclusive fashion and interior companies in New York, Australia, Japan, Italy, Paris, Frankfurt and London.
I’ve always loved making things and enjoy the whole creative process: To come up with an idea – then cut, sew, knot, stamp, iron, thread, glue, label – whatever brings the idea to life. I’m an avid collector of fabrics, buttons, ribbons and other curiosities. Beautiful stones, driftwood, books, films, food…all sorts of bizarre discoveries are my inspiration. As well as creating designs commercially and for my own SOBU collection, I have dedicated time over the past nine years to sharing and passing on my passion for the craft by running stitch clubs and craft projects at various north London primary schools. I hope you enjoy some of my creations. Please visit my website via the link below, where you can browse my work or contact me for commercial or private commissions.
