Chilli glass by Penny Carter

category: Glass   Jewellery & Silverware   

region: South West   

Contemporary hand made glass beads. I create each bead individually in a flame, and they then grow into unique pieces of jewellery. I started my career as a glass blower and have gradually began working in a smaller scale to work more intricately with colour.

Enjoying superposing the light of juicy transparent glass, and the deep pithy intensity of opaque colours. By peeling through these layers it’s possible to create edible fruit like seeds – chilli pepper and pomegranate, kiwi and prickly pear…spikey gooseberry or peppery damson.

chloe michell jewellery

category: Jewellery & Silverware   

region: South West   

I make delicate jewellery from silver, gold and gemstones. I combine precious metals, stones and some oxidisation of the silver to create contrast, incorporating small stone set granulations in my designs to add another level of detail. I never compromise on quality and work hard to create an intended organic, slightly irregular feel to my pieces, with my jewellery having a delicate human handprint on it.

My work is inspired by the North Cornwall coast line where I focus on the irregularities in shapes from pebbles, small details from rock pools and the contrast of the slate and quartz inclusions. After graduating from Truro College with a BA in Silversmithing and Jewellery with a First Class degree I continue to expand my knowledge of my discipline and will be studying the MA in Contemporary Craft this coming year at Plymouth College of Art and Design.

Chris Barnes

category: Ceramics   

region: North West   

Chris Barnes makes his pottery at his studios in Cumbria and Argyll. The Stoneware comprising a range of bowls, plates, mugs, jugs, vases etc. is thrown using a kickwheel and completed with various high fired glazes. He formulates his own glazes using a variety of minerals to produce a rich colour response combined with a very durable surface. Each of the pots is unique as a result of the entire making process. First the clay is hand thrown on the wheel or slabbed to produce the forms. After the first firing the glaze is applied by hand. Finally careful control of the kiln atmosphere during the second firing brings out the character of the ware, its colours and durable finish.

Clare Caulfield

category: Mixed Media & Recycled   Paper   Printmaking   

region: Yorkshire   

I am a Saltaire based artist and printmaker.  My work is inspired by my travels to some of the world’s most beautiful cities including Paris, Venice and New York.  Working in a lively drawing style I aim to capture the excitement, life and vibrancy of each location I visit, documenting my travels through the use of sketchbooks and photographs.  On returning to my studio I then produce mixed-media paintings, original screenprints & drypoints, limited edition prints and handmade cards.  These are exhibited throughout the U.K. in regular solo and group shows.

Closer to home I have also produced a series of work capturing the rugged beauty and charm of Yorkshire’s much loved coastal towns: Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Staithes.

Clare Hillerby Jewellery

category: Jewellery & Silverware   

region: North West   

Handwriting forms the starting point in my work. Postcards featuring handwritten messages from unknown characters are sourced to begin my process; I also search for old stamps and linen maps that have become separated from their original families ties and could otherwise be discarded as worthless.

Interesting sections are extracted from the found ephemera and combined with new handmade metalwork inspired by markings in our urban environment. The fragmented handwriting appears as pattern with intriguing hints of the original messages. By combining and layering contrasting handwriting, with stamps and maps and new metalwork, I create new contemporary stories to translate by the wearer. Silver is oxidised to highlight the ephemera and gold tube rivets are used to construct parts of the work. Old wooden rulers are also scattered amongst the pieces.

Claudia Wiegand Handmade Glass

category: Glass   

region: Midlands   

I design and make contemporary kiln formed glassware including home accessories, personalised gifts, jewellery, wall art and splashbacks. Exploring colour combinations and mixing translucent, opalescent, iridised and dichroic glass with metal inclusions, I also experiment with different temperatures to create perfectly smooth or highly tactile pieces. My work is predominantly abstract, defined by the fabulous range of colours available. Nature is a major source of inspiration – geological patterns and elements, trees branches and roots, shore findings – but it is the material itself, the way it transforms from solid to liquid and reveals its amazing hues and textures which keeps firing my passion for glass.

Originally a mosaic artist, I trained in Bristol and work from my studio near Pershore where I run workshops and have a number of kilns and workbench space available for hire by glass fusing enthusiasts.

I am a ceramic artist, specialising in 3-D sculptures but also making quirky functional objects such as vases, plates etc. Childhood memories are my main inspiration. My figures are often described as dark, joyful and weird and are made from clay, wire, and clothes designed uniquely for them. I also add fabric, papers, bits of wire, or anything that supplements the composition, stimulating further interpretation.
