Tamsin Arrowsmith-Brown  Tamsin works in wheel-thrown, hand-painted porcelain. The decoration is an exploration of mark-making in embroidery, knitting, textiles and print-making. These influences drive her to work in the simplified lines and marks of thread or block-print. She is drawn to a monochrome colour palette, in particular the blue and white of ‘traditional’ ceramics. Tamsin finds the clean, calm shapes of Japanese ceramics particularly compelling and while she does not consciously emulate them, reflections of these lines appear in her work, providing a contrast to the sometimes intricate patterns applied to the surface.

Belen Gomez  Belen's work is all individually hand made in red earthenware clay using techniques such as coiling and pinching. She uses slips, inglaze colours on a maiolica glaze, enamels and lustres to decorate the pieces she makes.⠀ Her illustrations are inspired by the natural world, pets, wild flowers, anything that catches her eye. She has always loved pottery that carries a narrative such as Greek pottery, Staffordshire flatbacks and transferware.
