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.

Roxanne Denny

category: Glass   

region: North West   

Roxanne graduated in 2008, gaining a BA(Hons) in applied art, specialising in glass. She currently produces cast and fused glass pieces and dichroic glass jewellery. With her cast glass items she likes to work in a way which challenges the perception of glass being ‘fragile’ by producing thick, chunky pieces, often using solid colours and contrasting textures. With her fused glass pieces and jewellery she concentrates on the way that the colours can be transmitted by light and on patterns within the glass. Her work is always bold and vibrant, as colour plays an important role. She is happy to discuss commissions of any variety.

category: Printmaking   

region: Midlands   

I graduated in 1997 with a degree in textiles and illustration. My work captures the essence of an image through the use of a delicate continuous line. I enjoy the feeling of spontaneity this gives me with my work. I hope this shines through in my designs. The line is offset against blocks of colour […]

I make small edition screenprints of colourful subjects that raise a smile. Animals and plants are a main theme, with a nod to mid-century design and a Scandinavian style. All of my prints are designed and printed by hand. I begin with a pen and ink drawing, which I make a stencil from for the […]

Ruth Harrison Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: South West   

My ceramics consist of slip cast shapes with disks or petal shapes that are cut from slabs of porcelain using icing plunger cutters or cookie cutters. These pieces are then sponged, scored and attached to the vessel using slip. Sometimes I add colour in the form of a glaze stain to the porcelain. Once fully dry they are fired twice in a kiln and glazed clear on the inside. I graduated from Plymouth College of Art with a BA Hons in Ceramics: my approach has its roots in a 2 week project called ‘Repeat Forms’ there, during which I became mesmerised by the idea of taking one shape and multiplying it around a shape to create a finished piece.

Ruth Lyne

category: Glass   Jewellery and Silverware   

region: East Midlands   

I have always been intrigued by the natural colours and textures of the sea shore, by the wide horizons and the surface of the cliffs. Fusing glass with metal leaf at temperatures of over 800 degrees allows me to create permanent forms inspired by memories of the coast.

I am also interested in the visual language used in abstract painting and place vertical and horizontal elements to instill a sense of calm and balance in the image. I don’t try to replicate the natural world but to create images that evoke a range of feelings and maybe memories, in the viewer and in me.  Although I am inspired by the coast, I make all my work in my studio in rural Northamptonshire, a very long way from the sea.

Ruth Packham

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Wales   

My background is as a Fine Artist, graduating from what was Newcastle Polytechnic in 1992. Since 1994 I have been living in the wilds of West Wales where I have had 2 children. I have always loved fabric and when my daughter was tiny, 1995 I took a screen printing class at my local Arts Centre. I have been printing since then, inspired by the patterns of nature, creating bold colourful images. Five years ago I made my first piece of felt and am now in awe of wool and its potential. Three years ago I made my first needle felt creature and am addicted! Birds are a current theme.
I also machine applique and make one off sewn items.

Sacrosanct by Design

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Midlands   

Sacrosanct by Design is the work of multi-faceted Designer/maker Stuart Crabbe. I use Jewellery-Object as a medium to conceptualise, contextualise and visualise my passion for architecture and Christian iconography.
Shape, form and aesthetics in my work derives from the tangible aspects of Christendom: churches, religious objects and scriptural depictions offer essential elements to materialise the context and spiritual message behind each piece.
