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.

Kyra Mihailovic Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: London   

My work in high-fired stoneware and porcelain explores form, colour and pattern to create relatively small scale work with a strong visual impact that may provoke pleasure when viewed and used. My pieces are hand-thrown and turned on the wheel; texture, weight, balance, scale and shape are all important components of my work. I hand paint my work in ceramic colours and oxides before biscuit firing; most of my work is glazed internally in a second, higher firing with exteriors left unglazed. Everyday sensory experience, organic forms, travel and historical artifacts all inspire my ceramics.

Laconic – Lindsay Forbes

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North East   

Laconic is a sustainable brand by jewellery designer, Lindsay Forbes. Crafted by hand in small batches using traditional Goldsmithing techniques and responsibly sourced materials.

My design inspirations range through travelling; experiencing culture and history, my Scottish heritage; folklore influenced by natural landscape and exploring design boundaries. I have an appreciation for minimal and sculptural design as well as consideration for the history and purpose of jewellery.

I use traditional Goldsmithing techniques, including lost-wax casting and forging. Cast elements are combined with hand-built details fabricated by cutting sheet metal, forging wire and soldering.

Laconic was born from my desire to do something I wholeheartedly believed in and was passionate about. It’s been influenced by my experiences and I continue to learn and be inspired by what’s possible. Years spent at art school taught me the design process, drawing and designing to a brief and knowledge of how materials work together to craft them into existence, building upon this by working in the industry learning and honing my skills. I hope that when you see and wear a piece of Laconic jewellery you can appreciate the attention to detail within each element, which has been designed with sustainability and responsibility in mind.

I am fascinated by texture and the ephemeral changes to light, texture and colour by the elements on our sea and landscapes. I find inspiration in nature and all things vintage, collecting beachcombing and flea market treasures; intrigued by the nostalgic associations and emotive power of nature.
