Art-Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: South West   

I am a ceramic artist inspired by the scenery of the beautiful coastline of Devon and Cornwall. Working from my studio in the grounds of Cockington Court near Torquay in Devon, I design and make a range of quirky sculptures of harbours, boats, fish and much more. Hand built using earthenware clay no two are exactly the same, so you can be sure of owning a truly unique piece of art. Each harbour takes several hours to make, paint and fire they are then finished with wooden masts, wire rigging and tiny colourful flags. Driftwood is also used as a base for some of the little boats, sailing on a sea of ceramic shells a colourful hand painted sail and tiny fish hanging on twine as if they have just been caught. I am always happy to take commissions or to personalise a special piece for you.

ArtShades

category: Paper   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Midlands   

I’ve been making artisan lampshades from appliquéd papers since 1999. Inspired by the play of light and depth of colour in stained glass windows, I started using the technique of reverse appliqué (most familiar to quilt makers) to recreate the effect in colourful plant-fibre papers. Since then my range has grown to include hand printed designs as well as shades made using reclaimed vintage Ordnance Survey maps.

I specialise in half-shades for table lamps and wall lights, but also make full drum shades for table lamps, ceiling pendants and floor lamps. My shades can be custom-made to order in colours and designs to suit you, and I’m known for my personal service and attention to detail.

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North East   

My work is inspired by the architecture of Indian monuments and palaces. The geometry used in the formation of the structural arches of these monuments, the intricate details of the ceilings, and the decorative panels in the windows and screens, all form a rich heritage for my work. The jewellery has the essence of the […]

Ashley James Design

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Ceramics   

region: South East   

I am a ceramic artist living and working in Hampshire.

My work is influenced by an interest in the natural world; a love of farm life and the surrounding countryside. I strive to capture something quirky and unique in each piece I create and I hope my work captures my personality. It’s important to me that each piece tells its own narrative. Working in stoneware I use natural oxides, underglaze stains and polymers on the clay surface, occasionally embellished with galvanised steel wire for a contemporary feel. My ceramic work is priced from £60-£500.

My work has been shown at Southampton Art Gallery, St Barbe Museum & Art Gallery, Mottisfont, (National Trust), Sherfield School and at The Grange, Northington (English Heritage).

Avril Cairncross Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: North West   

I work in naked raku. The pots, thrown from a porcelain/T material mix are burnished and then coated with a resist slip before being glazed. Once they are fired and put into a sawdust reduction the glaze starts to craze and then the pots are cooled quickly so that the glaze falls off like eggshell, leaving a silky white surface with smokey grey crackle marks and spots. I love the random effects.

Beca Beeby

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Ceramics   Metalwork   

region: Wales   

Though primarily a metalworker (cast iron, forged steel, copper…) recent work development has resulted me to working with porcelain – a return to ceramics. My training has spanned across the ‘Craft’ and ‘Art’ disciplines, as does my work. Experimentation is key to the development of my work, which is inspired by the livestock & plant life found in my natural environment ~ particularly the tiny details; the curl of a new shoot; the structure of a seedpod; the hipbones of a dairy cow. My concerns over intensive farming and human impact on the environment also influence what I do.
