Mandi Baykaa-Murray

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: South West   

My craft is painting birds of prey (my inspiration) on to feathers and small slices of tree branch. I use acrylic paints over a light layer of gesso, and a very light touch with a paintbrush. My feathers are presented either in a small ceramic vase made locally or in a specially made box frame. I display the wooden ovals on miniature easels. I have a Fine Art Degree and an MA in Printmaking but I currently enjoy painting wildlife using a variety of media. I help at a falconry centre where my inspiration and fascination with feathers comes from to create my art.

Metamorphosis Hand-Painted Furniture

category: Furniture & Wood   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: Yorkshire   

At Metamorphosis we source items of beautiful, previously owned old furniture and bring them back to life. We rescue, restore or repair and then revitalise them. During the process, their personalities begin to shine through. They start to acquire names. We get a feel for their potential. Some of them like to keep their original purpose, and others like to try their hand at something else. All undergo some form of metamorphosis, and become beautiful, unique individuals. We also revamp other pre-owned things; sometimes these are restored to their former purpose, and sometimes they take on a new artistic twist.

Michaela McMillan

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Midlands   

I create sculptural forms, wall pieces and jewellery. I use textiles, found objects, collected personal and family memorabilia and recycled materials mixed with new.
Much of my work is stimulated by the materials, both their physical appearance and qualities, and the story of their original uses and functions, and often, my own associations with them. Influences include Grayson Perry, Andrew Logan, Tim Walker, a 70s childhood, music and friendships.

Mouse in the House

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: Yorkshire   

I come from a Theatre Design background and apply my scale-model techniques to create small mixed-media playful sculptures of mice, made entirely from salvaged and recycled materials. I make numerous commissions and ‘one-off’ pieces, which are either freestanding, housed in a driftwood box, or positioned under a glass dome. The sculptures are highly detailed, with every aspect considered to a high standard, these can be personalised to meet a client’s specifications.
Prices vary, depending on the detail and complexity of the piece; they range from £15-£65. My clients often commission pieces for their own home, or as gifts for special occasions. The colours, materials and detailing frequently appeal to children as much as to adults.
I’ve always had a fascination with stories and histories, and collect profusely. I work with fragments of fabric, paper, wood and metal, with which I aim to fire up the imagination and encourage audiences to engage playfully with my work.

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

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.
