I am a woodturner from central Scotland with a love of rustic natural turnings.
You will find my woodturning to be varied in both style and size; switching from delicate pieces incorporating intricate finials to very large wooden bowls which can be over 20 inches in diameter. Natural edge rustic pieces are my speciality, as I believe that these show the beauty of wood in a more natural form.
My interest in glass started from my work as a graphic designer in London and Edinburgh and has slowly grown into a passion for creating unique and original handmade pieces of glass. My inspiration is nature and the beautiful environment of Fife and Scotland and I incorporate beach combing finds and natural materials, amongst others, into some of my contemporary glass pieces.
Funky, bold and contemporary fused glass jewellery, tableware, tiles, garden features and giftware. Every piece is intended to make a statement. Inspirations such as art deco, Thai temples, coral reefs, the natural world, screen printing and the digital world infuse the work.
Brodie’s recent work explores tension and balance. He contrasts outer surfaces with inner shapes, sensual curves with hard edges.
He calls the original blown a ‘pod’ and, with this organic image in mind with great precision, he cuts through the glass to reveal its structure. This dissected work creates a window into another world where dancing curves and open spaces contrast and unite.
Ceramics by John – Earthenware & Stoneware. John Brown is an Edinburgh ceramic artist who draws his inspiration from Japanese and Chinese stoneware.
Bryony Knox designs and makes colourful, interactive pieces, covering various scales from kinetic brooches to automated sculptures. Movement is intrinsic to the design and inspiration is derived from sources as wide as Greek myth, vaudeville and circus. She works in silver or copper, brass and steel, utilising their different colour combinations and patination to enhance the richness of the object. Repousse, chasing, fretwork, etching and simple mechanics are the main techniques she employs in her work. Bryony exhibits throughout the UK whilst also undertaking private and public commissions.
