Chris Howitt
Chris works with glass in various ways. Her inspiration is the interplay between light and the colour and textures of the glass, which can produce such wonderful and often surprising results.
Kim Adele Fuller
Kim is inspired by the ever-changing nature of land, sea & sky and likes to reflect this in large expressive contemporary works. Her original paintings are built of layers of rich colour & texture. They are mostly atmospheric recreations of imagined seascapes and landscapes.
She hopes to trigger in the viewer a sense of ‘being there’ and a sense of space and spirit of place.
Abby Martin
Sculpture inspired by nature made in durable fibreglass and resin
Lorna Casey
I design and make leaded decorative windows, copper foil pieces, appliqué and mosaic items. My work is driven by the bold use of design and colour. Stained glass windows create an atmosphere and can enhance both exterior and interior views to a property. Similarly, glass and mosaic objects enliven outdoor spaces and gardens.
I love designing and making items for a variety of settings, bringing style or fun to brighten and change the mood of each space.
Gillian Hills
I am always busy making something. I have a wonderful workshop (converted garage) which I’ve recently extended to house my printing press. I’ve been experimenting with different types of printing and combining techniques, often with disastrous results but I persevere. If I need something calm and reliable I turn to mosaics.
Painting, drawing and collage I’ve been doing for about thirty years and my style changes from time to time.
I have recently been working with textiles, printing on fabric and making small collages into cards, cushions and pictures.
My inspiration is varied but I do love cats!
Katherine Lawrie
Katherine’s jewellery, made in sterling silver, gold vermeil and gold, is inspired by natural forms, British wildlife and symbolism.
Using various techniques to create her jewellery, the predominant one is roller texturing. This is unpredictable technique involving the use of steel rolling mills, natural and manmade materials. The object that is rolled disintegrates leaving the surface of the metal with a rich texture. Using this technique involves a lot of happy accidents, but that is what keeps it fresh, and interesting. The jewellery can be very evocative, the pressing of a special leaf from a place visited once, or grandma’s lace. She uses this technique in conjunction gems and beads to create a body of work with sensitivity and subtlety which works in sympathy with the wearer.
Sue Edwards
My work is drawn from the forms and textures of natural objects, especially repetitive patterns in nature. My background is in textiles but I love books, paper and ink especially the effects you can get with ink. Mainly I make books from envelopes for keeping memory ephemera as well as objects and figures from repurposed books.
