Down To Earth

category: Metalwork   

region: Midlands   

I create contemporary garden art metalwork. All of my work is individually handcrafted at my workshop situated on the Shropshire/Clwyd border. Eye-catching and tactile, my sculptures have integrity and individuality – the combination of colour, texture and form produce unique individual pieces and bold statements.

My garden art can be used in any space in the garden, to create a backdrop for planting or as a focal point. Much of my work is collaborative as I come into contact and exchange ideas with other craftspeople and artists. Inspiration also comes from the landscape: living in the country, shape and texture are around you all the time. I have flashes of inspiration and translate ideas from my sketchbook into metal.

Dr Bean’s Bags

category: Fashion Accessories   

region: South East   

Dr Bean’s Bags are designed and made on the Isle of Wight. The Island is a creative environment and the seaside location was the inspiration for the initial concept; a simple yet strong bag that reflected a nautical situation. Use of natural fabrics, such as canvas and ticking, jute rope for handles epitomise the Classic Yachting heritage of Cowes. An eyelet and shackle add a pleasing finishing touch and each bag is individually numbered, much like a sail.

Our bags incorporate recognised phrases, poems and text, with stitched detail and appliqué. We like to celebrate the eccentricities of English life, which probably explains that the most popular style of bag features an extract from the daily ‘Shipping Forecast’.

In the world of Dr Bean, the forecast is always sunny – and can be made especially for the area you request.

DrawntoStitch By Louise O’Hara

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: North West   

I am a mixed media artist based in a small village in the heart of Cheshire; I work from my studio which is filled to the rafters with ephemera, vintage fabrics, typewriters, sewing machines, threads, hand painted papers and books, I am sure you can picture the scene!
During My Masters Degree in Fashion and Textiles I discovered ‘wabi Sabi’ and the ethos of ‘beauty in imperfection’; this really captures my inspirations and the work which I produce, I am influenced by tactile aged surfaces like peeling paint on walls and fabrics which are threadbare but laden with memories and stories to tell.
I use a combination of layered surfaces, collage, drawing, machine and hand stitch to create original pieces and I like to incorporate vintage and discarded items into my work to convey messages off nostalgia.

Ed Oliver

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: South East   

I’m a artistic woodturner based in Kent. My woodturning is enhanced by texture and colour and in many cases I’m asked if it ceramic or glass.
The wood is like a canvas and the woodturning is like the potters wheel. My designs come from the natural beauty in the wood to be enhanced, or the everyday object that we come in contact with.
I’ve trained with some very gifted woodturners based in the UK and now teach the skills which I’ve collected along my woodturning journey, and am a member of the Register of Professional Woodturners.

Eleanor Patton Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Scotland   

Eleanor Kerr-Patton is changing how we discuss mental illness through introspective kintsugi jewellery, created using ethically sourced materials. Recycled sterling silver encases shattered mirror, bonded by seams of golden dust. Signs of past damage become something to be admired and celebrated. In the tradition of Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing pottery with lacquer and gold dust, she endeavours to show the beauty of damaged things. The philosophy of Kintsugi – knowing that something is more beautiful for having been broken – treats damage and repair as part of the history of the object, rather than something to disguise. Each piece of jewellery is an outwardly visible representation of a journey often invisible to others.
