My inspiration comes from the natural world, patterns and graphics. Each lamp, lampshade and candle cover is finished with a solid wooden ring that completes the natural and simple look of the product. I grew up loving painting, art and […]

I work with fabrics, predominately silks, to create wall art and accessories. My work is influenced by details found within the natural world. Lichen and flowers are my main source of inspiration, with their subtle but intricate details reflecting empathetically the textures I create within my work.
I combine the use of traditional shibori techniques and incorporate a modern twist to create unique items. Shibori is the Japanese technique of binding fabric to create a resist when dyeing or to add a three dimensional texture to fabric. The modern influence is also seen in the process I use for adding colour. I use digitally printed fabric using designs created from my own photographs of plants and flowers

region: North West   

I am a surface pattern designer, specialising in the creation of unique print designs, which I apply to home textiles/accessories. I have a First Class Honours degree in Textiles and completed a Masters in Design in 2012. Following this, I developed my own brand and launched my first collection.

I create designs using a combination of hand drawn imagery and CAD. They are then digitally printed onto 100% heavy weight cotton in the UK. This printed fabric is sold by the metre or used to create hand-made home accessories, including cushions and limited edition, re-upholstered chairs. Buildings, maps and destinations inspire me. I love the aesthetic appearance of architecture. My enthusiasm about mid century design, geometrics and vintage products also influences my design process.

I work in naked raku. The pots, thrown from a porcelain/T material mix are burnished and then coated with a resist slip before being glazed. Once they are fired and put into a sawdust reduction the glaze starts to craze and then the pots are cooled quickly so that the glaze falls off like eggshell, leaving a silky white surface with smokey grey crackle marks and spots. I love the random effects.

Textiles, colour and pattern are my passions. I design and make a range of cushions and home accessories inspired by a childhood spent rock pooling, collecting shells on the sandy beaches of West Wales, walking through enchanted woods of bluebells and growing flowers and veg in the garden alongside my parents. As such, nature in its infinite variety features heavily in my work.

Over the years I’ve amassed a fine collection of buttons, ribbons and vintage fabrics that have found a home in my craftwork alongside liberty prints and more recent fabric finds. I use various techniques including appliqué, machine and hand embroidery to conjure up magic and character in my colourful creations.

Book Transformations

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Paper   

region: North West   

Kate Bufton’s work is an ongoing exploratory development, manipulating the shape and form of old books. The physicality of old books is an important inspiration for her work. The stained pages hold many unknown possibilities. The rough textures and musty smells help with progression throughout her practice as she continues to explore their physical structures. By altering the original form of books through various cuts and folds they are transformed from a carrier of text to an object of art.

Brittany Delany Ceramics

I explore the translucent quality and fragile effects that can be produced through the use of porcelain. Taking shape and form as a starting point I create functional vessels and tableware.

I work in two different ways, slip casting and slab building. With both methods the making processes are exaggerated and become a main focus of the design.

I enjoy combining porcelain with other materials such as leather and metal creating handles and intricate stitching. I also work with frosty coloured glazes producing tactile surfaces.

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North West   

I graduated in 2006 from Brighton University with a First Class in Wood, Metal, Ceramics, & Plastics. Since then I have developed my work producing collection’s and limited edition ranges of wearable but unique handmade pieces.

I use many materials but predominately work in nylon monofilament, each piece is individually constructed and dyed, making every piece unique. I find inspiration from everyday observations that other people often pass by, moss on the garden wall, UHT milk pots, and fungi growing on cheese. I am obsessed with multiples, and I am very much inspired by colour, flora and fauna, science and its order and structures. I always look for new materials, and different ways to manipulate them.  My work is tactile and I encourage the wearer to change and manipulate the pieces, once handed over is out of my control. I like that the work keeps evolving without me.
