My design ethos is guided by ethical and ecologically sustainable practices. By sourcing natural materials geographically close to my home and working with local craftsmen to produce furniture and lighting that is designed in contrast to the current system of mass...

My aim is to produce designs that are beautiful, informative and functional. I wanted to create work that not only looks aesthetically pleasing but is also scientifically informative, to create designs that can ‘shed light’ into the world of the unseen. In the world,...

I believe there is more to this life than meets the limited perception of our senses. I believe our understanding of the world via our material bodies poses as a barrier to the spiritual realm we inhabit on a daily basis. There is such an air of mystery around what...

Embracing my newly-found joy in fusing glass into beautiful and useful items, and exploring the aesthetic of representing everyday objects in alternative media, I wanted to find an outlet for it which would pander to another love in my life, food, and more...

I believe that the objects we own should, and can, provide us with more than their function and pure visual pleasure. Through ownership and use, objects should provide a level of emotional fulfilment and enrichment of daily life. This notion is something often...

Our movement through the world is one of weave; in which a material body moves through the world as part of the environment it inhabits. Its intermittent impartation no more or less relevant than its fellow counterparts. As a designer maker, I feel, there is great...

The ever-developing world of design has led to an abundance of obsolete objects. Objects discarded for their lack of function or style. However, found objects hold an inherent value within this series of work, being both the material and source of inspiration. Every...

My primary inspiration is found within the materials themselves, I have always been fascinated by the earth and appreciate that the planets resources are my medium; from the crystals and gemstones I set and embed to the precious metals I encase them in. Every fragment...

I believe that art should be an experience, where the viewer interacts and explores the installation space and the work within it. As an artist, I strive to create work that is able to evoke emotions and awaken the senses of the viewer, which I believe, makes an...

I have created this contemplation retreat within the shell of a 1973 Alpine Sprite caravan. Utilising skills from many different areas such as interior design, woodworking and textile design, I have pushed the boundaries of more traditional uses and combinations of...

The purpose of my making is in response to mass produced, disposable eating utensils and the increasingly fast and virtual world we are living in which I believe is ruining our precious time with loved ones. Through my studies, my attention turned from sculpture to...

My work is designed to promote a sense of relaxation and pleasure; I achieve this by incorporating all kinds of materials and techniques and by the inspiration to be found all around us. What makes them unique is that no two pieces of glasswork are the same. The glass...

I believe that it is important for designers to have a strong knowledge of their materials and processes for successful design. I design with the intent of broadening my skill and knowledge through intricately challenging pieces that embody a traditional eastern...

I had always been fascinated by natural/random fluid patterns, and marbling allowed me to experiment and make my own patterns, as well as allowing me to develop my knowledge of colour. With this technique I am able to apply colourful almost psychedelic patterns onto...

I am a fabric artist who creates collections of home accessories using wool and resin inspired by the colour and pattern of organic life. It’s my aim to display a body of work that captures organic life deteriorating through the use of tactile materials. I believe...

As a maker, it is my belief that objects should invite people to touch them, to play with them, to engage and experiment. I enjoy creating interactive, kinetic pieces of tableware, where form is important for pleasure of touch and to produce enjoyable silhouettes....

As a Maker, I combine what I see as old and new craft. The driving principle of my work is the use of traditional materials informed by contemporary processes to enhance our understanding of materiality. I explore materials such as bronze and ceramic to achieve...

I strive to make work that speaks of fleeting moments of time, and explores the relationship between human existence and the environment. I make to express the frictions between movement and stillness, and the beauty of the naturally formed, the organic and imperfect....

I believe that Making is one of societies’ last remaining connections to the more than human world; the wilderness of animals, vegetables and minerals. In Making we learn to go with materials, and in time begin to learn their immanent and gestural languages, affording...

Using various processes from printmaking, slip casting and working in bronze my composition is a visual poem mixing art with story telling. I find allegories in my work everywhere through looking at the world around me, and listening to voices, I connect the past with...

Using materials for a purpose they weren’t intended for is an element of design I find fascinating, this involves taking a material and seeing how far I can push its properties within products. I am also interested in space saving and collapsible objects, as with...

I’m a Welsh artist who joined the Maker team last year after changing direction from textiles, as I always wondered, how do things work and how are they are made. Working primarily in glass I have developed skills in glass moulding, using this process to create pieces...

My ceramic vessels are active objects in the sense that a range of them were designed to rock and move in response to their environment. Interaction through movement changes the traditional dynamics of an active man and passive women, as only the female forms are free...

My ethos centres around humour, play and satire, with the aim of capturing the spontaneity and sincerity of humanity and society. I believe that ceramic artefacts can represent the often unnoticed social and cultural expression of the everyday. I also believe that...

Art is a tool through which we, as human beings, can engage better with our sensorial capacity, thus bringing us not only closer to ourselves, but also to the world we inhabit. Developing a better ear for the chattering dialogues which exist beyond the human...

What drives my work is the celebration of nature, working with wood in innovative ways enables me to preserve that nature in time, compelling the viewer to question the very materiality of nature itself. I strive to promote a different way of seeing a material that...

Many people think of plastic as utilitarian, used to package food, and other products then thrown away. How could it be used for art? It has been my goal to explore the applications of different types of plastics in an artistic context, particularly in lighting....

I believe that we can investigate culture, the environment, our impact on it and our own subconscious through design and making. It therefore follows that the objects we create not only embody our ideals and tastes, but provide insight into what we desire and why....

My work is a combination of hand sculpting and press moulding, as well as contrasting elements of three dimensional form in ceramic and ornamental illustration in liner pens. My installation consists of large birds of prey wall mounted watching a gathering of smaller...
