Kay Morgan

category: Fashion Accessories   Leather   Textiles - Clothing   

region: South West   

I design and makes leather purses, bags and accessories. Based in Bristol I work from my studio and shop, BLAZE. My full range includes corsages, hair accessories, small coin purses, large purses, clutch bags and handbags.
Every piece created is cut and assembled by hand ensuring it’s uniqueness. I enjoy experimenting with floral shapes, which are all individually hand cut to create dense areas of interesting texture, maximising the sculptural qualities of the soft nappa leather. The purses are lined with quirky coordinating patterned linings. All fabrics are carefully sourced so combinations keep changing in order to keep items individual. All items are hand-crafted with every detail carefully considered ensuring each item is both functional, beautiful and tactile.
I enjoy creating beautiful containers such as purses and bags for people to carry around their treasured possessions, which are as beautiful on the inside as they are outside.

Kim Davis Woodturner

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Midlands   

I am a self-taught wood turner and forever learning. My working philosophy is ‘from the hands of the artist to the heart of the beholder’.
I create vessels and objects that have the clean, calm lines of a timeless form. Inspired by the intrinsic beauty of the native and exotic woods I use (all ethically sourced), I produce tactile shapes which have function at the same time as transcending into unique pieces of art by using the wood’s natural organic traits, often enhanced with various finishing techniques. My products range in size from bottle stoppers and bud vases through to larger bowls, vases and platters, to large statement pieces, including many natural edge pieces.

Kirsty Freeman Design

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: East Midlands   

I have a passion for drawing, embellishment and colour, and love to translate the beautiful things that I see in this world into unique and special works of art. My work is mainly embroidery & print based, making everything from stitched cushions & bags, to printed cards & coasters. I am inspired by work that has a strong sense of imagery, and aim to create an essence of beauty in my designs through the use of drawing and pattern making.

I graduated from De Montfort University, Leicester, in 2017 with a 1st Class (Hons) Degree in Textile Design. Throughout my work, I aim to push techniques to the limit: for example, translating my research into designs through embellishment, print, or fabric construction. To create my stitch based products, I combine the use of digital embroidery technology with traditional hand embroidery and beading techniques.

region: East Midlands   

My work has always had a textiles influence behind it, the structure of fabric and the free forms that the creases and folds created has become the backbone of my pieces. Combining textiles with porcelain in unconventional ways, pushing the boundaries between the marriage of textiles and ceramics has been the inspiration behind my work. I have two […]

Koa Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

From his studio near the picturesque Poldhu cove on the Lizard peninsula, Lawrence Gibson creates his truly unique range of Koa jewellery. The coves and the landscape of Cornwall have and continue to provide an endless source of inspiration to Lawrence, allowing him to achieve a dynamic and contemporary collection of pieces that are entirely his own. The designs take a direct influence in nature and the seashore, harbour life and the movement of the sea. Also from summer pastimes and surf culture. Simple forms hold colour and respond to natural light, others frame scenes, an image or a memory. More often than not, as with a painting or a sculpture, the owner responds by seeing what only they themselves see in each piece. This makes the jewellery become even more personal. Every piece of Koa Jewellery is hand made by the artist.
Koa featured in March’s Vogue magazine in ‘The Crown Jewels’ – a focus on new British jewellery designers.
