My younger sister and hugely talented Linocut landscape artist from rural Dorset. Inspired by Ravilious, Nash and Bawden, her imagery concentrates on landscape and the incidental forms and structures found within it. Her most recent work explores the texture, rhythm and muscularity of land. http://www.lizsomerville.co.uk/
A friend and collaborator in recent exhibitions, Melissa Cole FWCB is a professional artist blacksmith working from her Wiltshire forge making contemporary iron work and sculpture. Using traditional forging techniques Melissa combines serious craftsmanship with elegant and flowing fine art designs, that challenge the notions of traditional blacksmithing. http://www.melissacole.co.uk/
Unlike so many modern designer-makers, Younger brother Matt is unpretentious and his work reflects this integrity. Joints are used as and where they should be. A great deal of thought and consideration goes into even the smallest detail. From the choosing of timber to the way the wood is used, there is a complete understanding which is beautiful to watch. His furniture is exquisite and timeless, honest and straightforward, and each element speaks eloquently for itself. http://www.workingwood.net/
Emily Myers, ceramic artist, makes vases and other vessels on the potter's wheel. She uses carving and facetting techniques as well as employing beautiful glazes. Strong elegant forms with fine crisp lines and deep colours characterize Emily's work. She draws on both organic and architectural themes. http://www.emilymyers.com/
