Grated Finger Design

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Midlands   

I work with precious metals, silicone, latex and already existing materials. My design approach is based on experimental methodologies, i have a passion for juxtaposing unusual and an unexpected mix of materials using a myriad of making processes in order to create thought provoking pieces.
My perceptions of preciousness in materials reflect more toward the natural aspects and organic life around me. I see beauty in objects and materials, which most people wouldn’t regard; it is this curiosity that feeds my need to experiment, which then transpires into layers of depth in my finished pieces.
My price ranges from £25-£250.

Grufflebags by AngelaCoryn

category: Fashion Accessories   Textiles - Clothing   

region: Wales   

The inspiration behind Grufflebags came from a television programme on the fate of day-old billy goat kids which started a train of thought and research. I discovered that whilst meat and milk products have a market, the skins are largely wasted. Goatskins are a durable material with a softness and silkiness aching to be used.
I make phone bags, purses, messenger bags and more using beautiful, organically produced skins.

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Yorkshire   

I specialise in fabric design for personalised cushions & other items. I graduated in 2005 with 1st class honours in Art & Design at York St John. Started a family, which is where my love of children’s products came from. Since my youngest went to school, I find myself now creating surface pattern design and applying it to fabric, in particularly children’s products such as personalised cushions, plush toys and bunting amongst other things. I also love any kind of illustration, but have a passion for quirky characters!

Hannah Coates

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: Wales   

I work from my home in Bethesda, North Wales surrounded by my collection of art created by friends and family, vintage treasures and charity shop finds. These are all a great source of inspiration within my jewellery making.
I have always had a fascination with colour and wanted somehow to bring it into my work. I became very conscious of the amount of colour in packaging that we simply discard and throw away, in particular the rich jewel like colours in some plastic bottles and confectionery wrappers.
Having a keen interest in re-using and recycling, I decided to utilise these materials and have since been developing my jewellery from recycled plastics, foils, semi precious stones, reclaimed beads and silver.
I have been making jewellery since leaving college in 1991 and my work has been shown in many exhibitions and galleries around the UK.

In 2002, after accidentally leaving a book out in the rain, Hannah Lobley developed the award-winning Paperwork. She couldn’t bear to throw away her ruined and all-time favourite book (Lord of the Rings) and decided to see if she could reuse it even though she couldn’t read it again. Hannah had previously specialised in wood […]

Freshly poured wet slip is delicious, poured or trailed over the surface of a pot it looks good enough to eat and I never tire of working with it. My pots are all thrown on the wheel in a red earthenware clay and decorated with coloured slips before being finished with a rich honey glaze. […]

region: East Midlands   

I have always loved to draw. But a lightbulb moment happened when driving along my local high street, observing the vibrancy and activity of a community – shoppers and parents getting from one point to another; pathways crossing and intersecting, given context when placed against recognisable shops and schools. I realised that this passing of […]
