The papers serve as both the inspiration and the media for the work, with the narrative suggesting the forms. Through this marriage of unlikely materials old papers are transformed into something truly unique, delicate and […]

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. […]

Jewellery By Silvana

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North West   

I design and make quirky, individual jewellery, using sterling silver and copper as well as incorporating enamel, glass, brass and semi-precious stones sometimes. I also use pewter for brooches, pendants and earrings as well as clocks, thermometers and tiny animal ornaments. Though I didn’t start off this way, my designs are now predominantly animal based as these have proved to be so popular, though I still do my signature gingerbreadmen and also the more elegant ranges that I started my career with a decade ago.
My prices range from £12 up to £35 at the moment. Based in my home studio in Ashton-in-Makerfield, Lancashire, I have been studying, making and selling jewellery for 10 years but turned full-time only very recently.

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 […]

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designs involve using traditional basketry techniques with inspiration coming from the materials, the natural world and historical references.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.
