Jill Iliffe

category: Glass   

region: South East   

I work in fused glass, creating pieces that can be used in the home.  I am inspired by mid-century design and aspire to create pieces that have a clean look, are useful and good to look at. My distinctive ranges – Vintage, Fire and Ice, Scandinavian and Colour and Form – are designed and kiln fired with hand cut glass by me in my studio. Because of the process, each item in a range remains individual. My background is Fine Art and I have an MA in Drawing from the University of the Arts London, which has helped with my aesthetic and precision.

category: Ceramics   

region: North West   

I design and produce a series of contemporary ceramic objects that explore functionality. Blurring the boundaries between the usable and the purely decorative, with a minimal aesthetic and considered and refined colour palette. Fascinated by process, I explore the technique of layered slipcasting, to create unique pieces and both individual pieces and collections of curated […]

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

I am a trained silversmith who works mainly with silver but I have recently incorporated seaglass found on Dorset beaches into many of my pieces.
I love texture and my work involves reticulation and hammering. I’m put off by mass produced jewellery and therefore like to create one off pieces, while keeping my work affordable.

Jo Clarke Designs

category: Basketry   

region: South East   

I create textile basketry kits and original pieces using natural renewable materials. My designs involve using traditional basketry techniques with inspiration coming from the materials, the natural world and historical references. The baskets reflect the materiality of the fibres used being mostly jute, sisal, Manila hemp, flax and cotton. Hand weaving, twining, coiling and binding are the methods I use. I studied MA Textile Design at Norwich University of the Arts which reinforced my interest in natural renewable sustainable materials and also made me want to pass my knowledge on to other crafters. I offer workshops in my studio at DesignerMakers21 in Diss, Norfolk which go hand in hand with my basket design kits. I am a licentiate member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen and a member of the Norfolk Contemporary Craft Society.

Jo Hill Textiles

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Midlands   North West   

I am a textile artist and designer based in the Staffordshire countryside, making textile wall hangings, cushions, lampshades, chairs, and many other original fabric creations. I use sumptuous fabrics and intricate stitching to create contemporary textile treats for your home, business or as a gift.

Sewing is my absolute passion, and having won several design awards at University and gone on to sell my woven creations to Habitat, amongst others, I have spent the last few years developing the Jo Hill range of embroidered designs. My textile designs are inspired by the beautiful British countryside, in particular its diverse range of wildlife that is so often hiding in amongst the grasses and the trees.

I am proud to say that all of my original textiles are handmade by me in Great Britain with love, joy and lots of passion!

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Midlands   

Born in Chiswick and based in rural Staffordshire, Jo comes from a family of ‘Ponds’ who appear to have a genetic necessity for hoarding. Collecting unconventional and often unwanted items, Jo enjoys exploring symbolic references of form, material and technique, repurposing her finds, to create unique one-off items, often assembled with the use of a […]

Jo Turner – Brampton On Sea

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: East Midlands   

I create personalised whimsical scenes using recycled materials and treasures collected from nature. I collect everything I use from my garden, local area and family excursions. I keep boxes or packaging that catches my eye and that I think would make a great ‘frame’ for a little tale.

Experimenting with different pressed flowers and dried stems, I delicately make layers to create the different picture boxes. Capturing a story or a simple moment in time.

Made for any occasion, the possibilities are endless. I love meeting or hearing about new people and creating a special work of art just for them. I am currently creating pieces that aren’t made to order to build up a wider range of work. Each piece I create is unique just like each and every one of us…

Joanna Caskie

category: Paper   

region: Scotland   

I am a mixed media artist mainly working with paper to create handmade books, collage and occasionally sculpture. I use a variety of papers, sometimes new and sometimes with a history and enjoy exploring the qualities of my materials to create unique objects. Some of these pieces are made of paper alone and some are given details and dimension with threads, paints and inks. I am drawn to working with paper because of its ability to appear fragile yet be incredibly strong and because of its amazing textural qualities. Much of my work is inspired by the natural shapes and forms I see in my rural, coastal landscape.

John Franklin Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South East   

I make colourful, intricate silver jewellery, set with semi-precious gems such as unusual garnets and topazes. I focus on setting gemstones of uncommon shapes in unusual settings, such as channel-set marquise and flush-set baguettes. Pieces are cast to my mould, then I solder, hand-finish and set. My work is inspired by the way decorative arts influence each other through the centuries and across cultures. The designs are often geometric, and influenced by Islamic tiling and architecture like the Alhambra, whilst taking notice of an Art Deco spirit.
