Deshca Designs

category: Metalwork   

region: North West   

I make unique copper sculptures for the home and garden, including wall hangings, fountains, water features, flowers, birds and insects. Most of my work incorporates some facet of nature, as there is an abundance of inspiration to be derived from it.

Many of my pieces are one of a kind, and I like to experiment with different techniques and ideas, so I’m always learning. I also like to flame colour my pieces, so even if making the same item, no two ever look exactly the same. I’m more than happy to work with customers to provide exactly what they require. Ultimately if the customer is happy, then I’m happy.

devinesdesign

region: North West   

Individually hand cut leather items lovingly sewn by Suzanne from her home studio and studio 9 at Manchester’s Craft and Design Centre. After completing a degree in Embroidery in Manchester, Suzanne continued to explore her love of traditional embroidery techniques such as straight stitching, French knots, appliqué and buttonhole designs which she uses to enhance the simple shapes she creates for her leather bags and accessories. Although each product is designed to be reproduced each product is individual and no two are exactly the same.

Suzanne is influenced by simple shapes and colour combinations which can be found from objects all around us. She strives to make functional, loveable items from leather and other natural materials, examples of her work can be found on her website which is constantly updated with new work. To commission something from Suzanne please contact her through her website.

Diane Griffin

category: Ceramics   Jewellery and Silverware   

region: East Midlands   

After discovering a love for clay at an early age, I went on to study Ceramics at degree level and have been working with ceramics ever since. When designing a new piece I begin with the form and often look at sculptures for inspiration.  Anish Kapoor, Jim Partridge, Andy Goldsworthy and Gordon Baldwin are just a few of that artists that I enjoy and who continue to inspire my own sculptural forms.

I use a combination of techniques to create my pieces. My vases are slip cast then individual scrolls are rolled and applied creating a decorative and practical focus for each piece. I use white earthenware clay fired to 1150ºC which achieves a clean white finish allowing a crisp contrast to the bright colours on the insides of the scrolls.

I am currently working on pieces that translate many of the techniques that I have developed over the years for my sculptures into pieces that can more readily be incorporated into the home and I also have a collection of ceramic jewellery.

Diane Shaw Silks

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: South East   

Unique one-off items created using only the finest silk fabrics, threads and trimmings. All are individually handmade by the designer in her workshop in West Sussex, England.

Initially trained as a maker of bespoke silk lampshades at a workshop in Brighton that supplied top international design houses, Diane started out by ‘recycling’ the silk remnants of this trade. She created a unique collection of cushions inspired by the shapes and colours of the individual fabric pieces themselves to which she added silk embroidery and other embellishments. The collection has grown to include other home decor items as well as bags and gift cards.

The main design emphasis is on clean lines, and a neat, tailored feel that uses sumptuous silks to sculpture colours into folds, pleats and soft geometric shapes. Luxuriant dupions are layered with cool, crisp silk linens; royal taffetas are swathed with embroidered organza, and high-tech silk textiles from international design houses are complimented by simple hand woven natural silks.

Diane Shaw is a designer-maker currently listed on the UK Crafts Council National Register of Makers and in the Homes and Gardens Magazine Directory.

Dittany Rose

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South East   

I’m a second career maker who returned to jewellery design in 2015, twenty years after graduating from Middlesex University. I make contemporary jewellery in bright colours, working in silver, layered coloured card and clear resin. I aim to create pieces that are light, fresh and easy to wear; geometric shapes that add a pop of colour to an outfit; abstract forms without austerity, clean lines but with subtlety and detail. In 2017 I had a 12-week slot as one of the featured jewellers in the foyer of the Hepworth Wakefield. When you buy a piece of Dittany Rose jewellery you are getting a piece of wearable artwork.
