Ally Noble

I have a design degree from Liverpool Polytechnic and have worked in the arts for 30 years mainly as a computer artist, work that I enjoy but which lacks tactility. In looking for a more hands on outlet for my creativity I have over the years, tried various approaches and materials before glass caught my… View more

Wood has always been a part of my life, from a small child knocking nails in my Grandads old chair to retirement and love of woodturning. The beauty of wood with its grain and figures as it is turning gives me great pleasure. I make small items, boxes, jewellery, goblets and clock surrounds. I have… View more

Chris Hughes

I am a largely self-taught potter, artist and photographer. I hand build all my pots using pinching, coiling, slabbing and modeling techniques. I make bowls, bottles, plates, lamp bases and candlesticks. Many of my forms are sharp edged and finely balanced, the bottle forms often twisting as they rise. I use features from the landscape… View more

I discovered clay whilst studying Art at teacher training college and knew immediately that this was a medium to which I could relate. After teaching ceramics for almost thirty years, I still experience the same satisfaction and enjoyment whilst designing and making with this material. My work is both ornamental and functional. It is organic… View more

Daniel Nkrumah

Daniel was born in Moss-Side Manchester. His conscious desire and motivation for photography stems from an insatiable quest to reflect the spirt of nature’s peace harmony and beauty. Having always had a passion for music, poetry and paintings (impressionism), with digital photography, I am discovering ways of expressing the essence of all three. Symphonic seascapes… View more

Lucy Mitcham

I was lucky to grow up in a creative family, where we spent time learning and using sewing and other textile skills. My sisters and I used my mum’s precious Singer machine constantly, and we always had dress-making projects on the go. I think this formative practical experience, along with a tactile appreciation of using… View more

Malcolm Mentha

A love of symmetry, semi abstract shapes plus the strong colours of autumn and winter run through much of my work. Favourite subjects are landscapes and historic transport. The beauty of the English Lake District; Howgill Fells; Scottish Highlands and Yorkshire Dales hold a special appeal. When abroad it’s Italy. Images are usually spontaneous ie… View more
