I would describe my work as being very narrative.
I love creating work which has a story behind it or meaning.
Susan Jones has always had fun with sewing, but recently she has begun selling her delightful crafts. She worked as a physical Education teacher in Glasgow schools for 30 years. Always creating soft furnishings for her home and others. Now that her two boys are at University she has time to devote to her crafting.
A versatile and adaptable multi-discipline artist, my primary interests lie in ceramics, sculpture and painting. As well as formal art/craft training, my broad experience includes folk art, restoration of horse-drawn caravans, sign writing, and arts in education and the community.
Inspired by all things glass‚ and especially fascinated by the diversity and flexibility of warm glass‚ I design and create fused glass art‚ including wall panels‚ coasters‚ window hangers, bowls and jewellery.
Kathryn Hinton's work focuses on creating jewellery and silverware using digital technology to emulate traditional tooling in the process of making.
Fused, slumped, leaded glasswork by Kirsty Brady at A Touch of Glass Studio Argyll.
Contemporary jewellery and silversmithing inspired by the structures of boats and sea-worn textures. Kirsty works mainly in silver and wood, often incorporating pieces of collected flotsam and uses hammer texturing, folding, forging and raising techniques to create a range of cutlery, bowls, boxes, jewellery and many other objects.
I help farm rare breed Soay sheep. I work with raw fleece which I spin‚ pegloom weave or felt to produce individually‚ hand-made shoulder bags‚ belts and hats. I needle felt raw fleece to form sculptures and wall hangings.
She designs and develops Jewellery & interior pieces with a hand on approach. “It is a firm belief of my new practice that to merely design an object through an interface is neither craft nor art, a hands-on approach/background in the design and development is key to the integrity of its origin and being of the world.”
Libby deploys the use high quality materials: after recently obtaining design registrations on a selection of her work, she has been redeveloping existing work and new designs, which include wood and plastics, for a design brand named Day2.
Contemporary fashion-orientated jewellery inspired by Japanese 'Decora' Streetstyle where kitsch fabrics are mixed and layered creating wacky fashion combinations. I combine bold colours and patterns using resin, textiles(sometimes vintage), acrylic and photo etched silver. I like how textiles create a more tactile quality to my jewellery as well as adding a playful focus.
