Rivers Joinery

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: South West   

I make a range of wooden items, primarily riven green oak, joined, carved and painted furniture. I draw my inspiration from and use seventeenth century woodworking techniques with period and original form and design. The method produces pieces of solidity and honesty, which bear the original character of the wood and retain evidence of the making. The carving gives fluidity to the solid forms which can appear to move and change in the fading light at the end of day. Riving and splitting the oak reveals its medullary rays which add to the glow of painted pieces.

Roger Morris

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Scotland   

Roger Morris is a highly acclaimed and collected jeweller. The majority of Roger’s work since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1975 has been a balance between private practice and teaching both here and abroad. Recent work features the exploration of combining precious metals and laser cut acrylic along with developing techniques of mounting gemstones, highlighted by a unique method of clamp-setting.

His work can be seen in collections that include Houston Museum of Fine Arts, National Gallery of Melbourne, Victoria & Albert Museum, Royal Museum of Scotland, The Crafts Council and The Goldsmiths’ Company.

New work features neckpieces using primarily 18ct coloured golds and precious stones; these pieces compliment the range of unusual clamp-set rings.

Roger who was born in Devon now lives and works in Scotland and has established both his home and studio on the highest hill in Fife where the surrounding views and countryside are a constant source of inspiration.

Rohanna Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South East   

Rohanna Jewellery was created in 2003 by me, Gill Connolly when my oldest daughter had her ears pierced and kept coming home having spent a ridiculous amount of money on earrings, I fatefully said I am sure we can make earrings like these! A year later I set up Rohanna and haven’t stopped since.

I have always been inspired by colour and find putting different colours, shapes and textures together to produce unique pieces extremely exciting. I use all the best quality ‘ingredients’ and spend a lot of time researching new beads from different cultures, wherever possible I use handmade artisan beads and support Fairtrade suppliers.

Lastly and most importantly, I set all my prices at an affordable level. I don’t like to see you paying too much and that way you will come back for more.

Rose Dickinson

category: Ceramics   

region: South East   

Since graduating in 1972 I have spent my working life teaching and making ceramics. I make a range of handbuilt work inspired by my love of nature and the flora and fauna of the North Kent Marshes where I live.

I use the structures and textures found in natural forms juxtaposed with textures from found objects to produce an unusual range of work which is both decorative and functional. I use fine porcelain clays to make large bowls, vases, mugs, brooches and much more, all complementing one another.

Rosemary Lucas

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: London   

It’s still a mystery to me exactly how inspiration works in designing and making my jewellery. My work has been described as ‘classic but edgy’ and this aptly captures both my love of elegant, clean-lined forms and a taste for things asymmetric.

I make predominantly in sterling silver, using traditional bench skills to form handmade pieces from sheet, wire and chenier.  My range of silver and gemstone necklaces incorporates elements cast from my own handmade silver originals, often combining them with unusual gemstone beads as featured in this collection.

From my first evening-class encounter with a soldering torch twelve years ago, I was hooked on designing and making jewellery.  Now it is my full-time business. I am based in a shared workshop in Stratford, east London, a stone’s throw away from the Olympic Park and my work is on display at the JeDeCo gallery at the Oxo Tower in London.

Rosemary Rose Handmade Textiles

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Midlands   

I design a range of textiles for the home that explore fragments of memories through images and words, that are multi layered inspired by wallpaper peeling away exposing layers of different patterns that could evoke a lost past. Each piece has a story to tell, tempting your imagination to assign a narrative. Designs are applied using a collage of techniques which include printing, appliqué, free machine and hand embroidery onto a bed of hand rolled felt where I trap open weave fabrics, particularly lace, so that they look delicate and eroded by time. Or onto boiled vintage woollen blankets which have a felted soft surface which is ideal for drawing onto with stitches and creating furnishings in contrasting fabrics. The techniques I use have been developed over the last 12 years since I graduated from Winchester School of Art with a BA in Fashion and Textile Design.

Rosita Lilliana Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: London   

I like to take inspiration from unusual sources such as Sci-Fi movies and early 20th century art movements such as Futurism and Surrealism. I primarily work in silver which I contrast with oxidised copper parts. I use traditional jewellery making techniques including stone setting and riveting. I try to divide my time between making large original pieces intended for galleries and displays while also creating smaller but stylised pieces intended for retail.

I studied at Plymouth College of Art on the Contemporary Craft course which put a lot of emphasis on hand making techniques as well as well as innovative new designs. I grew up in London which is where I am now based.
