Lindsey Kennedy Portfolio

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Mosaics   

region: West Midlands   

Originally I trained as a jeweller and silversmith at Birmingham School of Jewellery, but I have transferred my skills to designing and making mosaics. Still gem-setting in lots of ways with highly reflective materials, just on a larger scale! I am currently inspired by the positive/negative patterns created by tree branches and the richness of highly decorative East European embroidery – bright colours against dark backgrounds.

I work to commission, on exterior and interior panels and I’m creating a range of work to sell online, in local galleries and from my studio. Prices range from £20-£300 for existing work and £350-£4000 for commissioned mosaics.

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

‘Drawing inspiration from themes of collecting memories I create playful jewellery which might explore a fleeting moment, a chance encounter or a material souvenir charged with meaning. Referencing shape, form, colour and pattern to realise each piece of jewellery I hope to create something which has both familiar and yet foreign associations, perhaps triggering a […]

I cast pieces that reference 18th and 19th Century British and European tableware. They are earthenware with coloured glazes, oxide transfers and hand painted with gold lustre. My work looks back to traditional tableware design but my line drawings bring a contemporary feel to each piece. My jugs and vases are made from moulds originally […]

Lisa Taylor Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Wales   

I studied B.A Hon’s Applied Art at Glyndwr University in North Wales, specialising in jewellery design. I use different materials within my work, mainly textiles and silver, but also resin. Colour is my main inspiration and I like to find alternative ways of using colour in my work. For my final degree show collection I used the technique of tatting hand dyed silk yarn. I then used the tatting in a unique way to create a range of textile and silver necklaces. I took colour inspiration for the collection from Victorian botanical water colour illustrations, and I have continued to expand the colour range of this collection. The silk is hand dyed giving each piece a unique quality. Prices range from £20 up to £249 for a one off piece.

Little Mill House

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Yorkshire   

I upcycle vintage materials such as tea towels,scarves and glasses into beautiful cushions and gifts. The idea for Little Mill House came from my obsession with hunting vintage items and needing a creative way to free them from storage. It then became an excuse to continue hunting lovely items and share them with other people. I was taught by my auntie to sew as I was growing up and have had professional tuition by a private tutor to perfect my techniques. Everything is made at home by myself and quality is a priority.

Little Ram Studio

category: Printmaking   

region: Yorkshire   

Little Ram Studio is Gary and Heather Ramskill – both artists & printmakers, we produce original prints from our home studio in a quiet North Yorkshire village. Specialising in linocut printing, we use the surrounding countryside and the many wildlife visitors to our garden as inspiration for our art. Each one lovingly made by hand, from the hand cutting of the lino plate to the mixing of the inks and the pressing of the paper on a hand press.

Gary’s style and technique, whether using a single or multiple colour plates, is to capture the finest detail, not in the photographic sense but one step removed from the identical representation, as if through a muted lens.

Heather’s print style takes inspiration from all things natural, especially favourite landscapes and the soft shapes of flowers. She tries to capture the strokes of the water colourist in her printmaking.

Loopy Ewes

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   Textiles - Clothing   

region: South West   

I bought my first sheep six years ago, absolutely determined to work with their wool to produce contemporary, artisan products with real provenance. My beautiful textiles products for the home can be traced from design, through production and right back to my flock of sheep that graze the Cotswolds countryside. My limited edition collection includes handwoven blankets, knitted accessories and sheepskin rugs. Across the entire range I aim to bring together woollen accessories for the home that offer aesthetic pleasure and a sense of warmth and cosiness. Most importantly, I want to connect my customers with provenance, with rural skills and with the feeling that they own something truly handcrafted, and evocative of our working countryside and great, British wool.

Louise Cottey

region: South West   

I find weaving to be an endlessly fascinating craft – watching how the different colours and yarns interact in the warp and weft, or playing with the structure of the cloth to create a new texture or pattern is something I will never tire of.
My aim is to create hand woven textiles that are equally attractive to the hand as to the eye. Textiles are a part of our everyday lives from a christening shawl, a comforting blanket to an elegant shawl, so it is important to enjoy them.

I am a wire artist based in Staffordshire. I produce 2D and 3D wire drawings of everyday objects incorporating thread in my work to add colour. The focus of my work is the line of an object, it’s this that I find the most interesting about everyday objects and is so often missed within the […]

category: Ceramics   

region: Wales   

Creating wild, but delicate, hand-built ceramics I use glazed and un-glazed porcelain to construct beaten, distorted forms with soft curves and interrupted contours. I like to engage physically with the raw material, pursuing a careful balance between fragility and bold strength, while the firing process enables the clay to develop a more undulating, independent sense […]
