Melanie Torrance Textiles

category: Fashion Accessories   

region: South West   

I am a self-taught textile artist working with natural dyes and prints taken directly from leaves and other plant materials (ecoprinting). I started making scarves, shawls and other accessories three years ago. I work with natural fibres, such as silk and wool and particularly love using silk crepe de chine as the soft pearlescent surface of the silk combines beautifully with natural dyes.

My inspiration comes from nature and the changing seasons. I gather a lot of my materials from long woodland walks and hedgerow foraging. Dyes are also made using avocado skins, walnut husks, pomegranate skins, flowers and local plants. My scarves are dyed by bundling lengths of fabric with plant materials, which are then steamed or immersed in a dye vat. After curing and rinsing, I finish the scarves with hand-rolled or frayed hems. Each piece is unique and captures a moment in time and place.

Melisa Dora

category: Ceramics   

region: London   

I design and make handthrown tableware, one-off large bespoke decorative ceramic trays, tile installations and porcelain jewellery. All of my work is inspired by Turkish architecture and the patterns and colours used on Iznik tiles dating back to the 16th century. My work involves using these traditions with a contemporary approach.
All of my work is decorated by hand. For my jewellery I use a variety of techniques to produce my patterns. I have many plaster boards in which I have hand carve patterns into. I also use slip trailers, underglazes and handmade stamps for my tableware range.

MeltedGlass

category: Glass   

My work revolves around an abstract, contemporary interpretation of our early human interactions with materials, our interaction with the world and how we perceive ourselves and our environment through image and object.

There is a commonality to adornment which has somehow followed the human species throughout its evolution – decoration and adornment of ourselves and our surroundings is an important part of our lives – it is almost intrinsic to our humanity. We ‘leave our mark’ on the world and on ourselves; we are creative, resourceful and expressive.

I work with glass because it has many personalities and I find it interesting to test it and push it to behave as I want, or at least as far as it will allow. Techniques hinting at mosaic, stained glass and illustration, together with combinations of richly coloured glass and metallics result in wall art, sculpture and objects which are engaging, expressive and unique.

Metamorphosis Hand-Painted Furniture

category: Furniture & Wood   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: Yorkshire   

At Metamorphosis we source items of beautiful, previously owned old furniture and bring them back to life. We rescue, restore or repair and then revitalise them. During the process, their personalities begin to shine through. They start to acquire names. We get a feel for their potential. Some of them like to keep their original purpose, and others like to try their hand at something else. All undergo some form of metamorphosis, and become beautiful, unique individuals. We also revamp other pre-owned things; sometimes these are restored to their former purpose, and sometimes they take on a new artistic twist.

Michaela McMillan

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Midlands   

I create sculptural forms, wall pieces and jewellery. I use textiles, found objects, collected personal and family memorabilia and recycled materials mixed with new.

Much of my work is stimulated by the materials, both their physical appearance and qualities, and the story of their original uses and functions, and often, my own associations with them. Influences include Grayson Perry, Andrew Logan, Tim Walker, a 70s childhood, music and friendships.

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: London   

Resin is an extremely versatile material that excites my curiosity because of its ability to be many things; sinuous or angular, transparent or saturated with rich dense colour, large in scale but extremely light, frosted or highly polished. Utilising these inherent working properties enables resin’s precious qualities to be revealed. Using traditional jewellery techniques I […]
