I am an established textile artist and quiltmaker making contemporary wall pieces and handbags to commission. Working with colour and fabric is the most exciting part of the process and creates the 'atmosphere' of the piece. The subsequent stitching of layers provides another layer of meaning.
I have been creating a range of contemporary and traditional handmade scarves with combinations of chiffon silks and Merino wool in a range of bold colours and designs.
I also make a range of casual shoulder bags made from recycled Gentleman’s suits recycled from local charity shops. These bags retain much of the original tailoring including suit lapels, pockets and cuffs.
I am a recent first class honours graduate (BDes Textiles) from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. Since graduating I intend to develop and expand my range of printed and constructed textiles for both fashion and interiors. I also intend to collaborate with other craft disciplines and continue to promote and support Scottish Crafts.
Based in Caithness, German trained goldsmith and Scottish/American trained glass artist Patricia Niemann works from her studio shared with the potter Jenny Mackenzie-Ross.
Her main work is making one-off pieces of fine jewellery to own designs and customer commission in silver, gold, palladium and platinum.
Patricia Shone’s work has an energy and physicality that combines the human action of moving tools and hands over and within the surface of clay. Each piece has a sense of movement as if the process of making is ongoing, pots are almost still being rotating, it’s this movement combined with the applied surface decoration and form which made the work stand out as a gold award winner.
