I make unusual and handmade cards for all occasions in all sizes. I also do 3-D and decoupage cards. I cover most of the occasions including Bon Voyage, Sympathy, Religious, Wedding, Christmas, Easter, Valentine's Day, etc. The cards are all left blank on the inside for your own message and are all supplied with matching envelopes. They are packed into cellophane bags for protection. No order is too large or too small for me! Cards are priced and sold individually.
My textile practice has evolved through experimenting with materials and methods of making in which hand work and craftsmanship provide both direction and context.
Hand skills are transposed though the work in a humorous commentary on social and textile history within the contemporary gallery.
In our practices we sell art work, with all the commission going to CHAS at Rachel House in Kinross.
Handmade Scottish Dog Treats & Dog Apparel. Collars, Dog Coats & much more !
I am interested in producing work from a narrative relating to the wearer. This allows me to produce a piece which is directly related to the wearer and is much more than just a decorative object.
We design and make ceramic tiles to commission quickly and efficiently, everything from a single tile to an entire wall. As professional makers since 1988 we have accumulated an understanding of ceramic methods and materials which is probably unrivalled in Scotland today.
Products: Handmade tiles, interior and exterior wall tiles, tile murals, unique installations, digital ceramic tiles, coloured glazes, lettering, landscape scenes, Aga panels and tile splashbacks, and fireplace tiles.
I am a award winning photographer and artist. We also make handmade quilts and crafts. We have a small island Art Gallery, which is open to the public.
My contemporary jewellery designs are all inspired by my photographic images of light with the theme of movement, fragility and protection. I use fine wire and metallic threads to represent the spontaneous lines and the detail involved in each light photograph. I think my photographs and jewellery reflect and capture the excitement and energy associated with city nightlife where you are surrounded by the darkness of night yet observe many forms of light and colour consciously or subconsciously.
Creative, bold and graphic contemporary textile design inspired by modernist and brutalist architecture, for use in the home, for fashion or as textile art.
