Stuart makes thrown tableware, made in batch production to order. The pieces have a subtle movement, an impression from the maker and material process, which makes every piece individual.The work is made in this way to draw attention to the way in which the relationships we build with functional objects are similar to the ones we build with each other.

Through fresh interpretation, Amy Hughes works to elevate and celebrate the clay body and its material qualities. Working with a dynamic and lively expression, pieces are textured and stripped back to highlight natural surface richnesses that have no need for further embellishment, establishing new dialogues between form and decoration. Surface treatments become part of the structure, hinting at the decadent and the extraordinary, giving a new lease of life to objet d'art symbolic of an important time in Ceramic History. Her collections seeks to bridge a gap between the past and the present, finding a new home in contemporary culture.

Bethan works across drawing, installation and objects. A sense of place is important to her, as is a rickety framework of literary and historical detail. New nature writing and old haunts loom large. www.bethanlloydworthington.com bethan (at) bethanlloydworthington.com

With infinite fascination for her chosen medium glass, Hanne's work explores its versatile nature; its optics, transparency and fragility. By working both with the glass both in its soft flowing state and in its cold hard state, she create forms and shapes that emphasise the purity and honesty of the material.Taking root in Scandinavian design, her work demonstrates simplicity through subtle shape and colour choices, ranging from contemporary decorative pieces to functional tableware. Being both a designer and maker she discovers and develops new techniques and approaches through hands on experience, constantly fuelling her understanding for the material.
