Ceramics, Glass & Enamel

An example of their work

Brian Anderson

I mostly make "pots" of various descriptions but also enjoy working with other materials and creating unique sculptures.
I work as an Art & Design technician, so time available for my craft is limited, but being part of the community gives great encouragement all round.

An example of their work

Jem O'Carroll

I focus on making enamelled works of still-life, landscape, architecture and figurative pieces. The medium is opaque vitreous enamel powder sifted onto copper sheet using stencils, sgraffito, wet-lay, freehand and water kiln fired to 800°c

An example of their work

Nigel Calvert

I am a blown glass artist. I was trained by Peter Layton and now make work at the Bristol Blue foundry. My work uses colour and designs that allow the glass to follow the form it takes with lots of scalding, coaxing and cajoling into vessels with coherent internal designs.

An example of their work

Cetta Di Lieto

My work is characterised by a nuanced and restrained
palette. Surfaces are sanded, scratched, and drawn
into. I aim to reveal beauty in the overlooked and mundane, drawing attention to the values of their condition. My latest collection includes studies of structures and spaces in Cornwall and Gloucestershire, incorporating painting, drawing and ceramics.

An example of their work

Judith James

I am still experimenting as an artist in different mediums and find I really enjoy painting large canvasses. I am lucky to live close to nature in the wonderful Gloucestershire countryside, which inspires my wildlife photography, and my art. Recently I have taken an interest in ceramics, enjoying creating in 3D items that can go in gardens, and sometimes featuring birds and nature.

An example of their work

Rachel Whitehead

Rachel throws functional earthenware pottery decorated using slips. She has recently been experimenting with raku glazes and firing. Influenced and inspired by many great potters Rachel continues to play with clay in her studio in Nailsworth.

An example of their work

Chris Boys

I first started to enjoy glass art about 7 years ago. I have developed different techniques by attending a variety of courses and experimentation. I take my inspiration from the world around me. I particularly love the translucent qualities of glass. I make some large garden pieces of art as well as artistic indoor pieces.

An example of their work

Kath Williams

I am a teacher, artist and jeweller based in Stroud. I enjoy working in a range of media including acrylic, watercolour and vitreous enamel. Like many, I find joy in the natural world and my work is inspired by the ebbs, flows, light and space found in nature. I particularly enjoy painting skyscapes and seascapes, often featuring murmurations. I also create seascape inspired enamel jewellery and teach enamelling workshops.

An example of their work

Sally Brooks

Sally Brooks is a ceramic artist and environmental activist, whose work reflects the negative man made changes, that are affecting ecology and humans.
Recent work developed from a year living in an ancient woodland on a protest camp, Jones’ Hill Woods in Buckinghamshire, now felled by HS2. The abstract scenes depicted on her Raku fired ceramics are personal memories of events, trees and place.

An example of their work

Eva Pollard

Eva creates kiln-formed glass art, homeware and jewellery under the brand Eva Glass Design. Her work is designed to interact with natural light to bring patterns of colour to interiors. Eva is inspired by nature, line and colour; and uses principles of balance and proportion in her designs which allows them to bring a harmonious feel to interiors.

An example of their work

Maggie Howe

I explore colour, form, material, pattern, and rhythm, and use these elements to share my feelings and impressions of the events and places of the 21st century. I aim to express what is peaceful, hopeful, and joyful in this turbulent and fast-moving time. These works are a "note to self" that life is worth the journey. The final pieces are often abstract but always start with looking, noticing and drawing.
