Tom Provost Furniture

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Wales   

I make contemporary bespoke furniture using primarily native hard woods, sourced as wind fallen trees and converted into boards for construction. I also incorporate other materials (glass, stainless steel, leather) wherever required/requested.

My formal training was carried out though an apprenticeship working under a time served professional, here I also gained a city and guilds level 3 qualification in furniture making and fitting.

My inspiration derives from the flowing form, colouring and simplicity of the trees themselves. During the design process I use various techniques to explore design concepts: 3D computer modelling, mock-ups and sketches are all possibilities here. I use traditional methods of construction such as dovetails and mortice/tenon, these methods ensure my work is beautiful yet durable.

region: North West   

Whilst studying for my degree in Norway my main Ceramics tutor told us not to attempt using the potter’s wheel during our studies as he insisted the course did not allow us enough hours practice to master the craft. Being a typical student, I felt extremely provoked by this statement. Determined to prove him wrong […]

Toucan Creations

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Yorkshire   

I design and craft wooden geared pendulum clocks to commission. I use various species of timber including walnut, oak, sycamore among others. My designs are a contemporary take on the traditional weight driven clock and showcase the movement of all of the clock parts. I like to incorporate various themes in to the head of the pendulum. For example my nautical clock highlights an intarsia square rigger ship and my most recent clock design incorporates a relief family coat of arms to produce a unique family heirloom. Creating something that is finely crafted, durable and unique is important to me as a maker.
My training is in both visual arts and engineering. I use traditional woodworking techniques plus woodturning, wood carving and intarsia as part of my craft.

Turnaround

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: South East   

Turnaround – Ian Banstead’s World of Woodturning offers bespoke, unique and handcrafted woodturning by a visually impaired woodturner. A qualified electrician for nearly 10 years before losing my sight, I started a woodturning course with the RNIB which sadly was brought to an abrupt end when the premises closed. I was very fortunate to then meet retired professional woodturner Dick Waller, who as well as transforming my skill and enjoyment in woodturning designed some special chisels to allow me to cut various patterns and shapes. I am open to commissions: please visit my website via the link below for details of these and the many pieces I have turned to date.

Twisted Designs

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North West   

I work using semi precious stones and polymer clay to make my jewellery. The pieces I create are simple, stylish and affordable.  My polymer clay pieces are mini pieces of art, they are all one of a kind and very individual.
I studied for a BA HONS in Textile design at Nottingham Trent, specialising in knitwear, and started making jewellery after creating a gift for a friend – who then got asked where she got it from and Twisted Designs jewellery was born!
I find inspiration from all aspects of life. I love colour, texture and form. I find many of the stones I use inspirational, the colours and simply because of the amazing way they are formed by nature. Unique in every way.

Unearthed by Lynn

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: West Midlands   

Inspired by the UK’s Industrial heritage, Lynn loves reconnecting with the craftsmen of the past and ensuring their stories aren’t lost by upcycling their work and repurposing it. She enjoys the process of unearthing pottery shards, sea glass and iron ore slag and researching their story – How did it get here? Who made it? Each piece comes with the provenance Lynn has been able to uncover, connecting you to the land and history of the shard.

Unearthed by Lynn forges an eclectic union of new and old, as well as raising awareness to reducing our footprint on the planet. She uses non-toxic, food-grade chemicals during the silversmithing process; she sources recycled eco silver for creating her jewellery; and utilises recycled and biodegradable materials for her packaging.
