The Pocket Pirate

category: Fashion Accessories   Leather   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Wales   

Using rich, reclaimed materials alongside largely offset leather, Alys Wall of The Pocket Pirate makes fashion accessories and interior products, providing a tactile and visual contrast between the interior and exterior of her work. Fascinated by how both the seemingly discordant and the compatible can be beautiful, each piece evolves into something entirely unique; reclaimed buttons add their own individual charm.

In the last year she was selected for the Welsh Makers Guild, Made By Hand in Cardiff and the Contemporary Craft Festival.

the rework house

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: South West   

I design and make upcycled vintage pieces for you and your home. Surplus stuff becomes unique light fittings, tatty vintage pieces are reinvented as wonderful wall decor and unloved bits and bobs are salvaged as quirky accessories. I use various techniques and the reworking begins with the design idea, junk suggests another use for itself and the reworking develops from the end vision. My background is in media and design but my love of upcycling vintage started as a child – I love taking one man’s junk and reworking it into another man’s treasure. My extended range of designs, ‘the rework house’, launched late 2012.

Tiff Howick

category: Printmaking   

region: London   

I’m an artist, illustrator and printmaker living in East London. I’m influenced by my Scandinavian heritage and I find inspiration in early twentieth century Russian illustration and contemporary fashion illustration. I like to use pencil, ink and paint before scanning my work and using a mac to enhance these images; focusing on bold colours, interesting textures and simple lines.

Tim Carter – Glass & Sculpture

category: Glass   

region: East Midlands   

Tim’s interest lies in the refractive, reflective and structural properties of glass; how it can be manipulated and decorated to affect the passage of light through it.  The work is formed using a variety of techniques, processes & materials, to produce work which is both sculptural and functional, with an emphasis on design, decoration, geometry and construction. Tim graduated from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 1992, where he studied Public Art. He specialised in Architectural Glass and Stained Glass and also gained experience in a variety of other disciplines such as mural painting, mosaic, ceramics and textiles.

After graduating Tim furthered his skills and experience by working in wood, steel fabrication and engineering workshops. He gained a PGCE in Art & Design Education in 1997 and has run evening & weekend courses in stained & decorative glass. Tim has continued to work with glass and other materials such as steel, stainless steel, non-ferrous metals, wood, acrylic and slate. Tim designs, manufactures & restores traditional and contemporary stained glass and leaded-light windows and also designs and produces a range of decorative and functional glass wall-pieces, mirrors, lighting and sculptures – for private, public and corporate; homes, buildings & gardens.

Timothy Hawkins

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Midlands   

Master Craftsman Timothy Hawkins became a professional furniture designer maker in 1980. He uses various species of wood & the pieces which he designs and creates may be unadorned, or might include inlaying; parquetry; carving or turning – other materials such as glass or metal are sometimes incorporated, too.

Tim & his craftsman use time-honoured methods to make bespoke domestic, corporate and ecclesiastical furniture to meet diverse requirements and budgets. He creates both contemporary & traditional furniture as well as extraordinary pieces (either for clients or for exhibition) that he feels happily stand their ground in the context of Art, whilst serving a practical purpose.

Pieces may offer a viewpoint on various aspects of life, inspired by our world, by Tim’s own experiences and those of others. Such pieces sometimes take many hours of thinking and drawing before crystallizing into a workable design, others may develop very swiftly!
