We are pleased to announce that the artists and makers showing work in our “Made in Hull” cabinet for Spring 2018 are:
‘My art work over the past few years has concentrated on landscapes . I take inspiration from the coast, the lakes and surrounding countryside, all of which inspire and excite me. My textile and creative studies were the grounding that cemented the multi layered way in which I live to work, constantly revolving, recycling old bits of my old artworks , printed pieces and ephemera, enjoying happy accidents that often occur with the collision of unwanted materials merging and cementing to create a new piece of art.’
Linda has an interesting range of work from fused glass sun catchers in an assortment of natural forms to jewellery formed into fish and birds. In this selection a unique and novel assortment of fairy’s can be purchased, offering a variety of magical objects created with a richness of patterned colour and texture.
‘I love to make unique jewellery pieces which are that little bit different and a bit more special than something that you might find in the mass produced commercial marketplace. I specialise in using handmade fused glass cabachons and lampwork glass beads but sometimes use other beads such as semi precious stones, freshwater pearls, pressed glass beads, Swarovski crystals and wool beads. I have a good customer base and regularly take bespoke orders, attend local craft fairs, have pieces for sale at Rings N Things in Hedon and have a display at Thorngumbald Village Hall.’
Debbie creates contemporary kiln fused glass in her studio in Beverley, East Yorkshire . Using contrasting textures which enhance the magical properties of glass the vibrant colours are captured & reflected, ever changing as the light alters. Her current work takes inspiration from the Yorkshire countryside & local wildlife and includes glassware, jewellery & framed art.
