Melanie Wickham – Lino Prints

category: Printmaking   

region: South West   

I am a lino printer based in Bristol. I trained as an illustrator and have been carving out original design lino cut hares, cats, spiders, plants, vegetables, people, cats, dogs and otters ever since. I am currently working on progressively larger flocks of birds.
I have exhibited regularly in galleries and exhibitions around the UK and have printed on many things – from lovely printmaking papers to walls, curtains and pairs of pants.

Melisa Dora

category: Ceramics   

region: London   

I design and make handthrown tableware, one-off large bespoke decorative ceramic trays, tile installations and porcelain jewellery. All of my work is inspired by Turkish architecture and the patterns and colours used on Iznik tiles dating back to the 16th century. My work involves using these traditions with a contemporary approach.
All of my work is decorated by hand. For my jewellery I use a variety of techniques to produce my patterns. I have many plaster boards in which I have hand carve patterns into. I also use slip trailers, underglazes and handmade stamps for my tableware range.

I make handcrafted porcelain inspired by the countryside surrounding Devon and Cornwall. The vessels are slipcast in my own plaster moulds, then manipulated by hand. Once glazed I use mother of pearl luster to finish.

Metamorphosis Hand-Painted Furniture

category: Furniture & Wood   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: Yorkshire   

At Metamorphosis we source items of beautiful, previously owned old furniture and bring them back to life. We rescue, restore or repair and then revitalise them. During the process, their personalities begin to shine through. They start to acquire names. We get a feel for their potential. Some of them like to keep their original purpose, and others like to try their hand at something else. All undergo some form of metamorphosis, and become beautiful, unique individuals. We also revamp other pre-owned things; sometimes these are restored to their former purpose, and sometimes they take on a new artistic twist.

Michaela McMillan

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Midlands   

I create sculptural forms, wall pieces and jewellery. I use textiles, found objects, collected personal and family memorabilia and recycled materials mixed with new.
Much of my work is stimulated by the materials, both their physical appearance and qualities, and the story of their original uses and functions, and often, my own associations with them. Influences include Grayson Perry, Andrew Logan, Tim Walker, a 70s childhood, music and friendships.

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: London   

Resin is an extremely versatile material that excites my curiosity because of its ability to be many things; sinuous or angular, transparent or saturated with rich dense colour, large in scale but extremely light, frosted or highly polished. Utilising these inherent working properties enables resin’s precious qualities to be revealed. Using traditional jewellery techniques I […]
