Biscuit Canvas Art

category: Other   Printmaking   

region: North West   

We create handmade personalised name plaques and canvases. My background is Illustration, and I started making these canvases a few years ago after wanting something different for my walls at home. This then progressed into name plaques – an ideal gift for special occasions, like friends having babies! The Illustrations are all my designs and are printed onto natural cotton canvas, folded and attached to either thin wood (plaques) or a wooden deep edged frame (canvases).

bone heart

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Wales   

After graduating from University College Falmouth in Contemporary Craft (2008) specialising in glass I worked in a glass blowing studio in New Zealand for one year. It was here that my interest in bone carving was first sparked. I instantly fell in love with the intricate, beautiful jewellery made from bone and wanted to have a go myself. I did and have not put down my tools since.
I feel most inspired when out in nature, this connection with nature rejuvenates me, inspires me and makes me happy. The materials I work with resonate with me in the same way.
Bone has great creative and tactile potential, it is soft and warm to the touch. When worn against the skin over time bone picks up your natural oils and self polishes.

Book Transformations

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Paper   

region: North West   

Kate Bufton’s work is an ongoing exploratory development, manipulating the shape and form of old books. The physicality of old books is an important inspiration for her work. The stained pages hold many unknown possibilities. The rough textures and musty smells help with progression throughout her practice as she continues to explore their physical structures. By altering the original form of books through various cuts and folds they are transformed from a carrier of text to an object of art.

Boop Design

category: Ceramics   Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

Boop Design is a range of porcelain ware all handmade in the Boop Design Studio in Somerset by Laura Pearcey and her small, highly skilled team of makers.  Laura’s unique illustrations are all hand drawn, and are quirky yet nostalgic.  They celebrate her love of found objects, and tell stories of the memories she has of growing up in Somerset, as well as the people, objects and songs that she loved:  Her Grandmother, her button box, her Victorian house, full of interesting objects, summer meadows, birds and butterflies, dandelion clocks, daisy chains, glass bottles, her dolls house, tea sets and nursery rhymes all were collected and treasured.

All Boop Design porcelain bottles are slip-cast in moulds made from some of Laura’s treasured bottle collection.  They are fired and glazed then Laura’s illustrations are applied as a ceramic transfer and fired into the glaze.

Bridget Bradshaw

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Midlands   

I’ve spent the last seven years learning and perfecting my craft, and spent the last four of those at The School of Jewellery In Birmingham. I love to work in precious metals but silver is my favourite. I have an extensive range of tools and enjoy using these to create designs.

I also run workshops from my home in Shropshire to suit all levels. They range from a taster session of 2 hours, where a student can learn very basic jewellery making skills, right up to an advanced level that will enable the student to design and make a piece of jewellery using a number of technical skills. All tools are provided. Metal is bought on the day by the student which is charged on the daily rate, according to a registered bullion dealer. For a whole day course, lunch is provided, and the prices start at £20.00 and go up to £75.00 depending what level the student wishes to achieve.

Brittany Delany Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: North West   

I explore the translucent quality and fragile effects that can be produced through the use of porcelain. Taking shape and form as a starting point I create functional vessels and tableware.

I work in two different ways, slip casting and slab building. With both methods the making processes are exaggerated and become a main focus of the design.

I enjoy combining porcelain with other materials such as leather and metal creating handles and intricate stitching. I also work with frosty coloured glazes producing tactile surfaces.
