Jane Sleator

category: Ceramics   

region: South East   

Stoneware ceramics, hand thrown on the wheel and shaped to produce unique, decorative as well as functional pieces.
My work explores the contrasts between rough and smooth, natural and man-made, as each piece is individually decorated inspired by the intricate designs found in wood bark.

Janet Downes

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

I make jewellery mainly using silver sheet and wire in a variety of techniques. I also use PMC to make pure silver chip beads which I incorporate into jewellery made with semi-precious chip beads.
I started with courses at the Mid Cornwall School of Jewellery where I had a lot of fun and learned the basics. I gradually collected my own tools and have recently acquired my own workshop at home where I enjoy experimenting to see what will work. I find it inspirational to be able to live and work amongst the hills, beaches, seas and skies of Cornwall.

Janet Wass

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Yorkshire   

I design and make jewellery, elegantly combining and contrasting silver with acrylic.
Having originally completed a degree in photography before gaining my MA in Metalwork and Jewellery at Sheffield Hallam University, I am keen to combine these interests within my work. I am inspired by the everyday: highlighting the detail and beauty of objects we often visually ignore through photograms. These images and patterns are transferred onto the surfaces of the silver and acrylic using photo-etching and laser-engraving.
I use the organic nature of the patterns derived from photograms as contrast to the clean regular shapes of my jewellery to create interest and elegance. All my work is polished by hand, including pieces that are laser-cut to ensure a high quality and consistent finish.

Janine Partington

category: Enamel   Glass   

region: South West   

Janine Partington is a designer-maker based in Bristol who combines the traditional craft of enamelling with fresh, clean, contemporary design to create framed panels, jewellery and sculptures.

Enamelling is the art of fusing glass onto metal. Janine creates intricate hand-cut stencils which she then lays on to copper. Her stencils are in the main inspired by trees, flowers, seedheads and the natural landscape. After sifting the powdered enamel over the stencil, Janine fires the piece at a high temperature in a kiln. This process is repeated many times until the work is finished. No two pieces are identical due to the nature of the process.

Jennie McCall

category: Ceramics   

region: East Midlands   

I grew up in the beautiful Scottish Borders where the local industry was textiles. Many of my artistic influences come from all aspects of this industry and from the rich source of folklore and nature.

Working primarily in ceramics I create my homeware and figurative work in stoneware and more recently have developed a range of work in parian. All of the ceramic decals are from my own collection. These are sourced from daily walks and also from pressed flowers and scraps which I occasionally find to my delight in some of my favourite old childhood books.

I am so fortunate to work in a lovely studio placed perfectly in my garden overlooking the fields and hills of the Welland valley in Leicestershire.

category: Ceramics   Leather   

region: South West   

The aesthetic and design of manufactured metal tins hasn’t changed for over 200 years. Fascinated by this curious fact, Jessica began to design and make ceramic pieces inspired by the characteristics and forms of metal tins through vitrified porcelain. A love for both cooking and eating has naturally influenced Jessica’s functional response within her designs. […]
