Jenny Arran  is a Lewes artist, with an MA from the Slade School of Art. Her recent paintings are an intuitive, sensory response to interactions with the pieces of wood in themselves, and what they evoke in terms of place and memory. For her a sense of connection is rooted in landscape and its forms develop spontaneously. She explores it as an ambiguous realm - landscape as a feeling.  Landscape as a reciprocal encounter and a state of mind, as much as a physical entity.    jennyarran.co.uk

Nicky Bryant is a hand-builder, mostly a coiler. She makes rough shapes, and refines them over days as they start to dry, carefully scraping away layers to create form, often very different to its origin.  Nicky is inspired by the work of many potters prominent in the late 1950s and 60s and is drawn to the organic, to texture, to blacks, browns and natural forms.

Abby Mosseri  creates small run collections and one-off pieces of jewellery using silver,  high carat gold & vivid gemstones. Fusing craft with fashion, her work is simple yet opulent, representing the time-honoured skills of the jewellery tradition.  Design inspiration is rooted in her passion for art and adornment of ancient kingdoms and influenced by cultures experienced on my travels in Africa and Asia.     abbymosseri.com
