Louise Crookenden-Johnson, Ceramics

"I was inspired in my early teens by a village potter to start making in clay, and went on to a degree in Ceramics at Loughborough University in the 1990s. Artist in residences and exhibitions followed, and then children came along and after a break I am back to making more determinedly. The beaky bird bowls and other pieces are each hand thrown on the potters wheel at my Kettering studio, using white earthenware clay, with majolica decoration."



Jo Archer, Mixed Media

A new collection of gothic jewellery and accessories, from Jo Archer of 'The Crow Road'

Mary Canny, Glass

"I am influenced by my love of the countryside, and nature which drives me to design functional decorative glass objects, with an environmental ethos. My work is created using discarded glass, destined for landfill sites. The aim of reusing bottles, double glazed units and other found materials is to promote the reuse of all waste materials. I wish to plant seeds for positive change, in the future encouraging thought and discussion on current approaches to sustainable design."
