Louise Brown Ceramics

Louise Brown Hares

Artists biography: At school I loved art, but the combination of having an uninspiring art teacher and the need for a career with a guaranteed monthly paycheque, I studied to become a radiographer. Over the years I became increasingly unfulfilled with the lack of creativity in my job so I decided to teach myself to paint, and gradually started selling my work in galleries and online, and began doning work for publishing companies.

Lindsey Tyson

Lindsey Tyson Tea Light Holder

Working from her studio in Scarborough, Lindsey's work is inspired and driven by the love of her surroundings and the combination of many and varied textile and art processes.

A weaver by trade, Lindsey has sidestepped into the world of felt making - creating a range of work that defies its description.  With her experiemental approach and stimulated by the challenge of utilizing and mixing of defferent media, mediums and techniques are explored beyond their perceived boundaries, resulting in a range of tactile and intriguing products for fashion and the home.

Linda Warrick Ceramics

Porcelaine by Linda Warrick

Linda Warrick has had a strong affinity to clay ever since, as a child, she first worked with it. She now works solely as a ceramic artist.

For the past 17 years, she has developed her work in porcelain, hand building semi-abstract birds. Each piece is burnished before firing, then smoked in sawdust. This results in the visual uniqueness of each piece along with an irresistible tectile appeal.

Kathryn Williamson Jewellery

Her work combines pattern or texture in a selection of unusual materials such as patterned papers/resin, beach pebbles, transparent enamel and semi precious stones.
