Consuelo Radclyffe

category: Ceramics   

region: London   

I am a ceramic artist, specialising in 3-D sculptures but also making quirky functional objects such as vases, plates etc. Childhood memories are my main inspiration. My figures are often described as dark, joyful and weird and are made from clay, wire, and clothes designed uniquely for them. I also add fabric, papers, bits of wire, or anything that supplements the composition, stimulating further interpretation.

My background is fine art, I then spent 15 years as a community artist facilitating creativity in others, a few years ago I found screenprinting to be the best way of reproducing my ideas, I like to use collaged vintage paper under prints and use fabrics to make useful and beautiful items.

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Midlands   

I work with hand selected hardwoods to design unique pieces of strong, elegant furniture. Each piece is created to meet the demands of modern living whilst maintaining an eye for the traditional principles of construction and design.

I’m inspired by the beauty of trees and the wonderful material they provide, the philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement and the simplicity and elegance of Art Deco.  I believe we all have an instinctive and historic affinity with wood and strive to celebrate this in my work.
