Hannah Coates

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: Wales   

I work from my home in Bethesda, North Wales surrounded by my collection of art created by friends and family, vintage treasures and charity shop finds. These are all a great source of inspiration within my jewellery making.
I have always had a fascination with colour and wanted somehow to bring it into my work. I became very conscious of the amount of colour in packaging that we simply discard and throw away, in particular the rich jewel like colours in some plastic bottles and confectionery wrappers.

Having a keen interest in re-using and recycling, I decided to utilise these materials and have since been developing my jewellery from recycled plastics, foils, semi precious stones, reclaimed beads and silver. I have been making jewellery since leaving college in 1991 and my work has been shown in many exhibitions and galleries around the UK.

Freshly poured wet slip is delicious, poured or trailed over the surface of a pot it looks good enough to eat and I never tire of working with it. My pots are all thrown on the wheel in a red earthenware clay and decorated with coloured slips before being finished with a rich honey glaze. […]

category: Printmaking   

region: East Midlands   

I have always loved to draw. But a lightbulb moment happened when driving along my local high street, observing the vibrancy and activity of a community – shoppers and parents getting from one point to another; pathways crossing and intersecting, given context when placed against recognisable shops and schools. I realised that this passing of […]

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.

Harriet Caslin

category: Ceramics   

region: South East   

Design led porcelain lighting and functional tableware are handcrafted in small batches from Harriet’s boat house studio on Mersea Island, off of the Essex coast. Influenced by her Scandinavian roots, Harriet’s designs focus on simple form, linear patterned design and soft contrasting colours to invite a tactile approach to her work.

“My work is all about appealing to the senses. I love the idea of someone using one of my designs and enjoying these little details; how comfortable the cup feels in their hands when drinking tea, how the colourful light transforms a room when it’s turned on. To me this is what creates an enduring and enjoyable relationship between the person and the functional objects that they use every day…”

HayleyGlassDesigns

category: Glass   

region: London   

Hayley Gammon works mainly in small ranges, as the ethos of her work is ‘handmade’ Glass Blown technique. Working in small ranges means that she is able to keep a keen eye on development, with the work evolving and adapting with her skills, whist maintaining a theme in her work.
With glass there is always something to learn and a new skill to master. It has a huge element of problem solving and demands quick thinking on your feet – this drives the artist and keeps the work fresh and exciting. Hayley enjoys making work and keeping the work accessible. She has developed a range of work that uses intense colours and simple forms. Prices range from £35 to £350.
Hayley feels privileged to work in this industry and would not see herself doing anything else.
