Possible Mirror

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: London   

Possible mirror specializes in making bespoke mirrors in a variety of natural woods and hand painted finishes. There is an ever-expanding range of designs to choose from and we welcome commissions. We make conventional mirrors, including oversize ones, but our unique feature are Box and Picture Mirrors.

Box Mirrors contain objects – shells, marbles, small glasses, eggs, dried flowers and so on. The interior walls of these mirrors also become part of the design using maps, fabric, collage, and even faux fur. Each mirror is different to some degree and some are unique – items sourced at the nearby Spitalfields Market will not be available again.

Picture mirrors incorporate images into the mirror design. All Picture Mirrors have anti UV glass to prevent deterioration. An attractive ‘antiqued’ mirror glass is also available and this can be used in any of the mirrors we make. Prices are from £50.00.

category: Printmaking   

region: Midlands   

Print Garage is the dark and dusty underground lair of Iain Perry: self-styled, swashbuckling squeegee warrior. I create vibrant screen prints investigating the minutiae of my surroundings.  I draw inspiration from old technology, tools and toys, cinema, record sleeves and the world of science. Originally trained in painting I have since discovered that screen printing is […]

Rachel & George

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: North East   

I am a designer/maker based in the North East creating a range of textile artworks using freehand machine embroidery. I don’t have any formal training, I used to work as an artist in schools and community centres but over the past couple of years have focused on developing my textile work. Having experimented with various techniques I happened upon the amazing world of freestyle machine embroidery and rediscovered my trusty sewing machine. It is a really satisfying process, building up images and shapes in pieces of fabric which come alive with the stitching process and addition of haberdashery finds. The work is mounted either in embroidery hoops or stretched over box canvas. The mounting style gives a contemporary feel to the presentation of the artworks and has a great tactile quality.

category: Enamel   Jewellery and Silverware   

region: East Midlands   

Over the past couple of years my jewellery work has explored the technique of drawing on enamel. I was taught enamelling at college and took a dislike to it, something to do with the bright colours! It was therefore a conscious decision when I revisited enamelling that I would eliminate colour altogether and just explore […]

Rachel Codd

category: Ceramics   Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Wales   

Rachel Codd is inspired by classical poems and fairy tales, creating tactile and wearable porcelain jewellery with a deeper meaning and story to each and every piece. Passionate about drawing a little bit of fantasy from our classical inspirations and into each piece through the ornate detail and unusual nature of this practice.

Working with porcelain to create a rich palette whilst still obtaining vivid detail. Clear glazed for tactile functional pieces, and finished with a dash of gold lustre; that holds a subtle hint of more traditional jewellery within a fresh creative process. Our jewellery is the result of a desire to dedicatedly hand-made pieces that form a tactile narrative, adding a little more beauty into the world and inviting us to not just view it but also wear it and become a part of it.

Rachel Darbourne

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

Rachel graduated from Middlesex University in 1994 with a BA Hons in Jewellery. Students at Middlesex were actively encouraged to experiment with unusual materials and ideas within their work and Rachel was, and still is, driven by the desire to reclaim and use a much undervalued material. She views polythene as a ‘fabric’ and whilst on her degree developed a folding technique which turns this two-dimensional, slippery, colourful material into objects that are three-dimensional, intricate and robust.

Her approach combines elements of both jewellery and textiles, creating highly wearable, tactile pieces that are distinctive, eye-catching and yet address contemporary issues of consumerism and how we assign value to the things we use and wear.

Rachel Gornall

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: London   

I create vibrant contemporary artworks for interior spaces. Constructed from layers of translucent textiles, which I have hand-dyed in a joyous range of colours, the artworks are adorned with hand-cut patterns and stitch. Colours are carefully selected for each piece to convey a mood and each handcrafted artwork is unique or part of a very small edition.

My love of colour and textiles is brought together with my interest in changes in light, new experiences and the rhythms and patterns of nature.  Current works are influenced by my local river in London, the shorelines and seas of Britain and travels in Latin America. I work from my studio in East London and also teach creative textiles.

Her new ‘Sketch’ range brings a drawn element to her felting and uses all British breed wools and yarns.

Rana Cullimore

category: Glass   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: South West   

I have been creating mosaic art for many years as a hobby. My first heart shaped mosaic came to life when I wanted to make something from a chipped dinner plate that belonged to my Grandparents to remember them by. As well as using the traditional materials of recycled china and colourful mosaic tesserae my love of the sea and beach combing has also influenced my work.

Some pieces have a coastal theme using pebbles, driftwood and shells. I also incorporate glass beads which is another fascination of mine. The nature of the materials I use on my mosaics makes each piece individual and unique. All the pieces are designed and handmade by me in my home….far away from the sea!

region: Yorkshire   

I started to realise how people spend time fidgeting with jewellery, sometimes for comfort or just while day dreaming, even if they realise it or not. I found this very interesting and it inspired me to create a collection of wearable jewellery that is also very tactile – pieces that want to be touched as well […]

For many years Rebecca has focused on designing and making silver tableware, alongside this she has always made jewellery to commission.

The “Cluster” range was originally working predominately in gold with precious stones but now also includes pieces in silver with organic shaped semi-precious stones.
