John Fishenden

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Midlands   

John Fishenden works exclusively in wood, choosing native hardwoods to make his domestic and commemorative wares.
Craftsmanship takes precedence over technology in his approach to making pieces. Included in this approach is a belief that nothing should be wasted, whether sawdust (which is composted) or off-cuts of wood, which fuel a wood-burning stove. John’s inspiration comes partly from his love of traditional slipware pottery, which used simple designs and often added messages or a design in trailed clay slip. He is also inspired to work with the grain and pattern of the timber he finds. He learnt the art of woodturning alongside artist and toymaker Robin Dale, when living in North Lancashire. John also worked as a sign-maker in his youth and consequently has a real eye for the use of lettering.
John now lives and works in rural Herefordshire, in the beautiful Golden Valley.

John Parsons

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Scotland   

I design and create innovative contemporary turned wood pieces, specialising in the challenge of making small, high quality boxes, striving for the perfect shape, a smoothly fitting lid, and a beautiful tactile finish.
Design cues are taken from nature, witnessed in the smooth, often gently curving and flowing profiles. Beauty from simplicity. Perfection in form. Working with natural materials. These are some of the things I am passionate about.
The boxes are made from sustainable woods and range from pure and simple, single wood designs, through to boxes featuring carved decoration, or inlaid contrasting woods. Interiors are equally finished to a high standard. They are little works of art with wide appeal for those who appreciate craftsmanship and the beauty of natural wood.

My work is based around pure silver clay and silver smithing techniques. I love using graphic prints, textures, natural images, text and a striking aged technique to give the designs their quirky modern edge. Extra effects achieved include enamel, and gold plate. All pieces are handmade in my studio in Berkshire.

Julia Wright

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North West   

The soft forms of weather worn pebbles, the repeated structure of moss and lichen growth and patterns in clusters of barnacles, inspire my jewellery. I use combinations of hand-pierced and domed silver and copper with added textile details to create wearable pieces that echo these shapes. The contrast between the textures of metal and crochet/felt fibres enables me to explore the tactile qualities of each material and I enjoy the very different processes involved in making each element.
