Alice Fox

category: Paper   Printmaking   

region: Yorkshire   

My work combines techniques from textiles and printmaking traditions, the two often combining to make abstract contemplative pieces that celebrate and carry an essence of what I experience in the natural world. I aim to draw the viewer in, invite them to look closer and perhaps notice things they might otherwise have over-looked. I work with paper and cloth as well as making use of materials gathered from the places I walk.

My work ranges from large-scale installations for specific spaces to intimate framed artworks and artists’ books. Each piece develops by layering up marks and textures, building up subtle surfaces and exploring materials through the making process. I use found metal objects with tea to make marks on paper, silk and linen, making use of natural dye techniques. I set things up and watch them develop, responding to the marks that appear with further layers of print and the contoured lines of hand stitch.

Amy Stringer

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Yorkshire   

Architecture meets nature. Amy Stringer brings together both common and precious materials to create bold, contemporary jewellery. Amy studied a BA (Hons) Degree in Jewellery and Metalwork at Sheffield Hallam University, England, where she became inspired by the city’s combination of modern, industrial architecture and large green spaces.

Amy’s unique designs combine cement with striking silver work. Cement is found in almost every building throughout the world’s cities, but the material is often under-appreciated and its beauty can be overlooked. Within her designs, Amy sets elements of nature such as moss and lichen in the cement, forging a connection between architecture and agriculture. For her silver work, Amy takes inspiration from the steel framework and Brutalist architecture creating bold, blocked designs and contrasting these inspirations with set organic elements and soft ‘settings’ from silver sheet that appear to have naturally folded into place. Each piece of jewellery is carefully handmade in Yorkshire, and each is entirely unique.

Catherine Woodall

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Yorkshire   

Initially I studied engineering, followed later by art and, for me, making jewellery has been the happy combination of these two disciplines. I studied jewellery at the Yorkshire Craft Centre for five years both during and following a Certificate for mature students course at Bradford College.

All my jewellery is handmade in my workshop atop the – often – windswept Pennines. Surrounded as I am by Emily Bronte’s ‘high waving heather’ and the green wooded valleys, it is little wonder that my work is inspired by nature. The veins of a leaf and the rain or dewdrop glistening on it are some of the details I’ve drawn down. I work with silver and semi precious stones and am inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement in both Britain and Vienna at the turn of the last century.

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.

HanneMADE

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

region: Yorkshire   

I am a teacher and artist living and working in Brighouse, West Yorkshire. I was an art teacher with a degree in Visual Arts and Culture, but 10 years ago I wanted to develop my own practice away from school and discovered an outlet for my ideas and creativity through completing a City and Guilds in embroidery, and my business, HanneMADE, was started.

I love mixing media together and the theme of journeys runs throughout my work, be they my own journeys collecting inspiration or my materials’ journey, as I upcycle where possible. I use a range of techniques in my work from mono screen printing, digital printing, college, many textile techniques, print… and I love to stitch, be that with my machine or by hand. I produce a range of pieces of work from unique framed pieces, pieces to wear (brooches and pendants) and greeting cards.

Janet Wass

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Yorkshire   

I design and make jewellery, elegantly combining and contrasting silver with acrylic. Having originally completed a degree in photography before gaining my MA in Metalwork and Jewellery at Sheffield Hallam University, I am keen to combine these interests within my work. I am inspired by the everyday: highlighting the detail and beauty of objects we often visually ignore through photograms. These images and patterns are transferred onto the surfaces of the silver and acrylic using photo-etching and laser-engraving.

I use the organic nature of the patterns derived from photograms as contrast to the clean regular shapes of my jewellery to create interest and elegance. All my work is polished by hand, including pieces that are laser-cut to ensure a high quality and consistent finish.

Jean Cunion

category: Ceramics   

region: Yorkshire   

I handbuild ceramic stylised birds in the form of either a small vessel or, for larger birds, a jug. I use stoneware clay and decorate with underglaze colours, slip and glazes. My inspiration comes from the birds of the moors, coast and countryside of North Yorkshire and in my garden.

address: Whitby, N Yorks.

Little Mill House

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Yorkshire   

I upcycle vintage materials such as tea towels,scarves and glasses into beautiful cushions and gifts. The idea for Little Mill House came from my obsession with hunting vintage items and needing a creative way to free them from storage. It then became an excuse to continue hunting lovely items and share them with other people. I was taught by my auntie to sew as I was growing up and have had professional tuition by a private tutor to perfect my techniques. Everything is made at home by myself and quality is a priority.

Little Ram Studio

category: Printmaking   

region: Yorkshire   

Little Ram Studio is Gary and Heather Ramskill – both artists & printmakers, we produce original prints from our home studio in a quiet North Yorkshire village. Specialising in linocut printing, we use the surrounding countryside and the many wildlife visitors to our garden as inspiration for our art. Each one lovingly made by hand, from the hand cutting of the lino plate to the mixing of the inks and the pressing of the paper on a hand press.

Gary’s style and technique, whether using a single or multiple colour plates, is to capture the finest detail, not in the photographic sense but one step removed from the identical representation, as if through a muted lens.

Heather’s print style takes inspiration from all things natural, especially favourite landscapes and the soft shapes of flowers. She tries to capture the strokes of the water colourist in her printmaking.

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.

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.

Penny Hunt, velvet & bracken

category: Ceramics   

region: Yorkshire   

I completed a fine art degree and MA at Manchester Metropolitan University over twenty years ago and have been teaching art while painting and making since then. I recently left teaching and moved to the Yorkshire Dales, where I am surrounded by a landscape that constantly inspires me. The changing light on fells and moorland catches my painter’s eyes and I find myself increasingly fascinated by the people and animals that inhabit and visit the area, the climbers, fell runners and cyclists who make use of the land. All ceramics are hand built and are glazed and fired multiple times to give the layered more painterly effect.
