Based in her studio near Cirencester Tara forms each ceramic piece by hand, making beautiful delicate vases, bowls, nightlight holders and small dishes. Tara impresses fabrics into the soft clay for her vases, and creates bowls with soft folded edges in semi transparent porcelain clay.
“I reflect my love of patterns in antique lace and fabric collected from around the world. “
Tara’s colour pallets are inspired by the countryside and wide open skies of her childhood and perfectly enhance the details of ceramic pieces.
Inspired by the nature in her own garden Tara also creates sculptures that are both practical and beautiful, providing Birds, bees and hedgehogs, with food, water and shelter with a range of bird baths /feeders.
Molly Lemon is a printmaker who specialises in wood engraving. This technique has a rich history and was invented in the 18th century to go along side movable type on conventional printing presses. This meant illustrated books were more widely available and at a affordable price.
Molly has always loved the immediacy of printmaking, the feeling of excitement and anticipation when she peels back the first proof of a block never goes away. Printed in small editions these miniature artworks depict little scenes you’ll want to step into.
Molly engraves onto English box wood and lemonwood using traditional tools to create detailed designs inspired by wildlife and the natural landscapes surrounding her. The block is then inked up and printed using her 150 year old Albion press.
Roger’s creative work is developed through a multi-disciplinary approach centred on drawing and print, but often realised through ceramic media. Projects develop from a variety of personal enthusiasms, are original and show a sense of invention and craftsmanship. There is a particular interest in expressive mark-making, in Eastern Art and calligraphic brushwork.
Recent themes are fish and feathers; designs being developed with a combination of related abstract rhythmic marks and colours.
Roger currently has a workshop in Maze Studios, Barton Hill, Bristol. He is actively involved in teaching drawing and 3D practice in schools, and in further and higher education in the South West of England and a tutor at the Folk House, Park Street, Bristol.

Andy’s original digital illustrations, based on his photography, range from impressionistic to photo-realistic.
Using a stylus and a tablet as a ‘digital canvas’ allows Andy to create intricate mosaics of hand-drawn triangles, selecting precise hues and tones and thereby maximising depth of field and vibrancy of colours.
Andy’s portfolio includes Landscapes, Seascapes and Botanical studies, all available in strictly limited editions as Giclée Prints, on archival quality paper and printed using up to 12 natural pigments.
Andy has been selected for an exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery and the Chelsea College of Arts, London, as well as numerous Contemporary Art Fairs, Exhibitions and Festivals throughout the UK Solo Exhibition at the Laughing Dog Gallery in Brighton Marina and currently represented by the Marylebone Gallery, London.
Andy is also very excited to have been invited to participate in the Florence Biennale 2019 and future plans include participating in Art Fairs across Europe and USA.
