Kirsty Adams trained with a pottery in Western Japan after studying in Brighton. She now works from her studio in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. Her work is thrown and decorated with subtle brush marks and layers of poured glazes. Each piece has a feeling of spontaneity, delicacy and fluidity. Her bronze lustre rim porcelain pieces are fired three times to achieve a creamy gloss glaze with oxide and bronze lustre rim detail.
Laila Smith has a love of mathematics that is reflected in her work. She utilises clean lines, uncluttered forms and simple designs that are clear to read as jewellery. She has been making and selling jewellery since 1996 and has been in her current Hove studio since 2002.
Lara has been designing and producing embroidery on my domestic sewing machine for over 20 years. Following working in various textile industries, she started producing her own collections 8 years ago. Lara explores 'mark-making' and 'movement' with a needle, along with light illuminating stitch work and coloured fabrics, in the form of lampshades. Screen printing her embroidery (her 'printed stitch' collection) is also a feature of some of Lara's work. Currently Lara is focusing on more one-off lampshades, as lighting in interior design is very exciting at the moment!
Laura Baxter makes precious jewellery, metal wall pieces and silverware inspired by botanical forms, gardening and bird life. Twigs, buds, blossom and birds are stylised to create graphic silhouettes of nature. The intention of her work is to create pieces which capture the essence and beauty of plant and bird life. New work for 2017 takes Laura’s aesthetic in a different direction featuring elegant rings, pendants and brooches using natural rose cut diamonds, olive green tourmalines and sapphires. Designs are handmade as one-off unique crafted pieces and in limited edition collections.
Lesley’s inspiration predominantly comes from natural forms although her recent work has been influenced by the sculptors of the 1950’s. The sculptural language of a range is the first stage of her design process, the finish is designed to give the wearer a very tactile and intimate relationship with her work. She uses traditional jewellery techniques and hand thermo-forming.
