Jenny Wightwick

Jenny’s source material is predominantly a response to nature, often using simple ‘stick and ink’ sketches taken from what she sees whilst walking, photos are sometimes taken and used.

These free-form responses are developed and transferred onto the clay surface and can be gathered anywhere from Holkham in Norfolk where she grew up and the South Downs where she now lives.

Rebecca Tann

Rebecca is a carpenter by day and produces beautiful stools which will be on display. Minimalist, colourful and sleek.

In her spare time, Becca loves to produce meticulous lino prints all hand-printed, brown-papered and individually numbered. She is inspired by flora and fauna – the nature surrounding her and this is really shown in her work.

Andrew Milne

Through his use of vibrant colour and expressive mark-making, Andrew explores our connection with the countryside, remembered from past walks and encountered afresh with each new season.

The hopeful new life of spring and summer’s swaying grasses and hedgerows are inevitably replaced by autumn’s textures, long shadows and then the stark contrasts of winter light in the patchwork of fields and woods of the South Downs. It is this ongoing cycle of nature’s visual feast which he strives to capture and bring to our notice.

William Papworth

Most of Will’s work is hand thrown on a potter’s wheel, creating one-off and repeated forms that reflect my appreciation of simple, ergonomic design. Features like comfort and practicality are of fundamental importance; the way a mug feels in your hands means as much to Will as how it looks.

The various glazes Will use all share a natural and subdued palette and he’s particularly interested in ash-based glazes. The subtle alchemy and huge diversity of ash glazes present endless possibilities.  He has been developing an ongoing series exploring a range of beautiful and intriguing surfaces.
