Hand Dyed Cushions by Deborah Manson

We are excited to be stocking the work of Deborah Manson - Deborah is a textile artist who loves colour, and is interested in natural sources of coloring and printing fabrics. She enjoys making her work as sustainable as possible by using craft processes and methods such as natural dye, print hand stitch and using fabrics from waste streams. She often looks to mid twentieth century artists and movements for visual inspiration.

These cushions first caught my eye when Deborah brought some to Atelier 51 to display alongside Silvia K's ceramics for the Open Studios event. The natural dyes and bold shapes worked so well with the terracotta ceramics and combine dynamic and fresh inspiration with traditional dyeing and patchwork techniques. 

The pink tone Deborah uses is Madder, a dye derived from roots of the Madder plant which has been used for over 5,000 years and the yellow is Weld, another plant based dye used historically. Her work also features repurposed and vintage linen and cotton with feather filling.

New Ceramics in the shop from Emma Johnson

ARTISTS, SHOP NEWSMeghan Limbrick
Emma Johnson Ceramics (11).JPG

New in the online shop, we have a beautiful set of work from Emma Johnson Ceramics! This hand picked selection from the Brighton based ceramicist showcases her brand new glaze colours.

If you fancy a saucer with your cup there are several available as a combined and discounted purchase in the shop - just look under the options for each cup design.

The pieces are a selection from Emma's Altro-City and Habitual ranges which can be stacked and used together.

Atro-city explores the revival of Brutalist architecture, employing classic Brutalist aesthetics like heavy forms and asymmetrical proportions along with design philosophies embodied in the architecture including Form Follows Function and Truth to Materials.

Habitual is a collection of simplistic tableware, created for regular use to enhance meal times and become a part of everyday routines. Forms adhere to similar principles as the Atro-City range: heavy and minimal without unnecessary fussy details.

These items are entirely handmade, including the wooden riveted handles on the cups which have been individually shaped to fit each cup and riveted to the porcelain.

Take a look at the range in our online shop or come and see them in person!

FEATURED MAKER - SILVIA K

SHOP NEWS, ARTISTS, ONLINE NEWSMeghan Limbrick

So Silvia K is our Maker of the Week!⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Silvia's ideas are fuelled by her research into ceramic ware from sources as diverse as Spanish drug jars to Iraqi dinner plates. Her collections are contemporary interpretation of old artefacts.⠀⠀
All pieces in her latest range are made by hand in Silvia’s favorite terracotta clay that has been fired to mid temperature to give it a beautiful rich red colour. The iron in the clay finds its way through the grey-blue tin glaze and results in uniquely varying waves of speckles around the edges of the ware. The simple decorative quality of a coloured line is achieved through the use of a palette of complementary colours.⠀⠀
