After our Open Studios this week, we are "getting away from it all" with our next featured artist - Flora McLachlan. Specialising in etchings and collagraph prints, Flora is inspired by the enchantment of nature.
Flora McLachlan's etchings and paintings have an unforgettable presence, infused with a haunting sense of poetry. Her work is carefully structured, where echoes of form build distinctive compositions, enriched by her use of patterns from the natural world.
Take a look at more of Flora's work here. Remember, take 15% off at the checkout with the code FLORA and this can also be applied in the real life shop!
The shop and studios here at Atelier 51 will be open everyday between 13th - 21st May, 11am - 5pm!

Anna’s new designs are hand cut out of sheet metal and coloured with enamel paints.

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.⠀⠀

ATELIER 51 is a studio space home to designer-makers Elaine Bolt, Silvia K, Rhoda K Baker and Sarah Young as well as a headquarters for Tutton & Young who run the successful shows MADE London, MADE Brighton and Brighton Art Fair.
We are now launching the ATELIER 51 STUDIO SHOP, which will feature work from our resident designer-makers alongside other outstanding artists, craftspeople and designers, some of whom have exhibited at MADE. Specialising in British handmade work, we aim to highlight the individual makers and their processes as a way of inviting the viewer into their world. As well as showcasing a range of work from our hand-picked artisans, we will be hosting special events, and working closely with makers on collaborative projects and pieces to be sold exclusively at ATELIER 51.
Alongside the physical shop we will also be starting an ATELIER 51 online retail space where you can buy work from all our featured artists as well as catch up on news from our studios and find out more about the stories behind the pieces.
