My pieces explore ideas of the embedded object and memory. The found objects I use are metaphors for recovered memory – forms of association and representation. I see these materials as artefacts which have a powerful relationship with the environment I have taken them from. I use objects which pull away from their environments acting as signifiers of residual memory.
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.

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.
Stand out from the crowd and dare to be different...............
Every piece of jewellery I make is a unique and original creation.
Inspired by the beautiful Scottish landscapes and scenery, I manipulate, hammer and fold the silver until I achieve the disired effect.
Contemporary Glass and Glass Jewellery. Functional and sculptural forms and vessels. Importance of colour, layering, pattern and texture. Use of hot and cold techniques to create individual pieces with a graphic bent/twist. Bold colour and subtle tones are used to create pattern while cold working creates pattern and surface texture.
Catriona makes contemporary silversmithing and jewellery using mainly silver and often incorporates gold details. Her work is delicate in style with subtle tones of a floral influence. Plant forms and structure have been the inspiration for her work. She uses traditional techniques such as scoring and folding, hand raising, forging, hammered textures and kumbo which is a process for applying gold foil to the surface of silver.
My work is based on hand and jacquard woven fabrics that can be used for lighting, screens, blinds, and other interior applications. My textile passion lies in woven interior textiles and in the experimental manipulation of structures and geometric patterns. I love to combine traditional and modern weaving techniques to create three-dimensional innovative fabrics.
