My forms are inspired by the landscape around me. The textures reflect the rugged beauty of rocks exposed to extremes of wind and rain, shadows that dance across the fields that I can see from my studio, can be glimpsed through the pierced surfaces. Holding the pieces and following the curves and textures gives you […]

Sally Reilly

category: Ceramics   

region: South East   

My work is a celebration of the everyday experience of eating and drinking, and of private and shared moments. My love of cooking and good food is central to my work. I design and throw ranges of tableware for everyday use, small collections of pots for more ceremonial moments and individual pieces.

I was born in Ireland but trained in Paris in an Anglo/Japanese tradition. This early influence is evident in my work but I am also interested in the pure shapes of Modernism. Alongside my work in series I continue to experiment with form and technique, sometimes adding non-ceramic elements. Most pieces are high fired stoneware with classic oriental glazes but I also use brightly coloured slips on earthenware and stoneware under a transparent glaze.

Sally’s Shed

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: Midlands   

I specialise in hand-painting street scenes and individual buildings, shops and churches onto wood, allowing the beauty and character of the wood to complement my art work.
My inspiration comes from the buildings and architecture of Lichfield, and also my garden, where I design and create my products in my little brick built shed: my creative haven.

The wood I use is either donated by friends and family, or found in the ‘unloved’ section at local timber yards. Each piece is unique.

region: South West   

Because everything I do starts with drawing, I often arrive at my studio with armfuls of blossom, roses or leaves I’ve gathered from the garden or woodland and sit down and draw.

My lovely print studio is based in North Devon where I create bespoke interior textile products, fabrics, wall-coverings and accessories using traditional printmaking and craft skills, combined with experimental digital technology using the very best materials sourced in the U.K. wherever possible.

My designs have been commissioned to create trays and rugs and have twice been shortlisted for the British Design Awards.

My inspiration comes from my love of pattern and colour, as well as hints to textile construction. Though I did not go through any formal training, I have spent a long time experimenting with techniques best suited to applying pattern to the surfaces of my pieces. My work is made from flat slabs of clay. […]

My extraordinary objective is to realise the necessities and requirements that would be involved in ‘fairy life’: to provide everything a fairy would demand during its daily existence. I have named these ‘Fairy Aiding Inventions’, invented by ‘Brain’ (me). They are theoretically functional items for the mildly eccentric. I try to express a sense of […]

Samantha Robinson

region: East Midlands   

Samantha Robinson works with a subtle combination of porcelain, metals and textiles. Using the porcelain’s purity as a base and inspiration from textures, tags and the ‘everyday ordinary’, Samantha adds a subtle stitch, a hint of colour or a glint of metal, drawing our attention to what is often overlooked.

The processes involved are slip casting, hand building, stitch and embossing. This blend of techniques and materials provides a tactile and intriguing range of jewellery and interior pieces. Samantha is an accomplished international designer maker and tutor, working on freelance projects that include producing work for exhibitions, retail outlets, commissions and delivering workshops.
