Rachel Gornall

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: London   

I create vibrant contemporary artworks for interior spaces. Constructed from layers of translucent textiles, which I have hand-dyed in a joyous range of colours, the artworks are adorned with hand-cut patterns and stitch. Colours are carefully selected for each piece to convey a mood and each handcrafted artwork is unique or part of a very small edition.

My love of colour and textiles is brought together with my interest in changes in light, new experiences and the rhythms and patterns of nature.  Current works are influenced by my local river in London, the shorelines and seas of Britain and travels in Latin America.

I work from my studio in East London and also teach creative textiles.

Rana Cullimore

category: Glass   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: South West   

I have been creating mosaic art for many years as a hobby. My first heart shaped mosaic came to life when I wanted to make something from a chipped dinner plate that belonged to my Grandparents to remember them by. As well as using the traditional materials of recycled china and colourful mosaic tesserae my love of the sea and beach combing has also influenced my work.

Some pieces have a coastal theme using pebbles, driftwood and shells. I also incorporate glass beads which is another fascination of mine. The nature of the materials I use on my mosaics makes each piece individual and unique. All the pieces are designed and handmade by me in my home….far away from the sea!

Richard Shock

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: South East   

I make turned wooden pieces on my lathe in a workshop in our garden in Oxford.  Wood is an exciting material to work with, providing a huge range of colours and forms. I use mainly British native woods, increasingly from local sources, but with some exotics, especially when I can be sure that they have come from sustainably managed forests.

I started woodturning as a hobby in 2000 and left my job, in an environmental consultancy, in 2005 to become a full time turner.  I am a member of the Oxfordshire Craft Guild and on the Register of Professional Turners.

Often with my signature inlays, most of my work is functional. Other pieces are purely for display.  I make high quality work with attention to design to enhance the inherent beauty of the figure and grain.
