Handmade native plant-papers, found objects both natural and manmade, walking the environment both rural and urban whilst collecting and researching materials for my unique assemblages, this is how I work. My pieces are exhibited in galleries around the world.
I also run papermaking courses for professionals and amateurs, adults and children in a variety of venues. The emphasis is on environmentally sound papermaking methods.
My work is crafted by hand as each piece is delicately cut. Each piece has been inspired by nature and has then evolved into a contemporary piece through use use of lighting, layering and sculpture.
Totally hand forged and exclusively designed ironwork. Commissions welcome.
Seatree crafts is a creative venture seeking to reflect the beauty of the area we live in - the mountains, seas and lochs of Argyll. We create with clay and make use of flotsam cast up on the beaches of Argyll - in particular the beautiful pieces of driftwood - and create with clay and glazes that reflect the beautiful tones of blues and greens and rainbow reds and yellows.
My jewellery is made from sterling silver with occasional detailing in gold or with gemstones.
All the pieces are fabricated by hand from silver sheet or wire to produce light forms – often strictly geometric, sometimes with a softer, rounder biological feel.
Chrissie Heughan constructs unique works with paper formed by the simple gesture of hand papermaking.
One of the foremost creators of hand cast paper; Chrissie combines both traditional and contemporary techniques.
Chrissies paperwork's are hand dyed, hand constructed two and three-dimensional forms. They include paper fibres from plants such as cotton, Kozo and Abaca, recycled paper and may also contain collage and print. Her works range in scale from packs of papers, paper luminaries, and cast paper wall relief's through to large-scale hangings.
The inspiration for my work is nature. I aim to capture the delicate textures and shapes of nature in metal. After studying natural forms, by drawing and photographing them. I take shapes and textures I find interesting and translate them into designs for jewellery.
A wide variety of jewellery mainly in sterling silver, many pieces including accents in 9ct or 18ct gold. I specialise in simple, classic styles which will stand the test of time.
