category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Yorkshire   

I started to realise how people spend time fidgeting with jewellery, sometimes for comfort or just while day dreaming, even if they realise it or not. I found this very interesting and it inspired me to create a collection of wearable jewellery that is also very tactile – pieces that want to be touched as well […]

My ceramic practice is driven by my expressive drawings, with the abstract marks influenced by abandoned […]

Sarah Knowles Design

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Yorkshire   

I am a trained designer/maker having completed a BA (Hons) in Silversmithing and Jewellery at Loughborough in 1997. Although my life took a different direction after university, I never stopped being creative and now I have come back full time to what I love best creating handcrafted Jewellery and Wall Art.

Having set up my own label Sarah Knowles Design, I create intricate pieces made from re-found paper and other materials. Imaginatively incorporating the art of paper folding, fine stitch work and various other design/craft techniques.

These pieces are inspired by my childhood in rural North Yorkshire, along with a love of global cultures especially those of Spain, China and Japan. Within my work I explore the balance and tension created between nature, industrialisation and human existence.

Sarah Sanders Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Yorkshire   

I am a printmaking jewellery designer. I use a heat transfer printing process onto aluminium sheet which I then cut, shape and form into jewellery. I love to mix and match photographic imagery with coloured and textural ink effects. The nature of the printing process means each piece is unique therefore, creating bespoke ranges is my favourite way to work.

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.

Shirley creates wall hung and freestanding sculptures and shadow frames, using white earthenware to hand form flower components, small creatures, birds and fish. Texture is embossed into the surface. Under glazes and oxides are applied to give layers of colour. These are then assembled together with driftwood, wire, reclaimed maps, vintage magazines and other interesting […]

Stitching for the Soul

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Yorkshire   

My name is Beverley Holmes-Wright and I have been stitching and creating for over 20 years, but started up a part-time business a few years ago, after completing an honours degree in Creative Practice from Leeds Met University, for which I received First Class.

Why Stitching for the Soul? Stitching makes me happy and is an integral part of my life, it keeps me busy and enables me to meet people who are like-minded, making and buying well crafted hand-made items. I am partial to a bit of soul music too!

I produce carefully made, physical pieces which please the eye and brighten up the homes which take them in: using only the highest quality fabrics and threads, each piece is made using a variety of free machine embroidery, appliqué and delicate stitched patterns. But perhaps the largest part of my work involves planning aesthetic colour schemes and composition so that each creation is harmonious and balanced.

Toucan Creations

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Yorkshire   

I design and craft wooden geared pendulum clocks to commission. I use various species of timber including walnut, oak, sycamore among others. My designs are a contemporary take on the traditional weight driven clock and showcase the movement of all of the clock parts. I like to incorporate various themes in to the head of the pendulum. For example my nautical clock highlights an intarsia square rigger ship and my most recent clock design incorporates a relief family coat of arms to produce a unique family heirloom. Creating something that is finely crafted, durable and unique is important to me as a maker.
My training is in both visual arts and engineering. I use traditional woodworking techniques plus woodturning, wood carving and intarsia as part of my craft.
