...................producing art and design from salvaged materials
What we do and where we show our work...................
We think its important to let our clients know that this website is not a selling website. We have a small studio /workshop that is not accessible for sales, so we use this website to give people a flavour of what we are about as creative people and also to let people know where we will be selling our pieces over the year.
Over the years we have always collected and saved a wide variety of materials from a wide variety of sources. This has sometimes been because we just love the article or piece from it's own sake but more often it has been because we see the potential to develop the material into another piece of either design or fine art piece. This process is something that we both find inspirational and one that has stimulated our creative work for many years
Almost anything goes when it comes to selection of materials. From combing the beaches of the Wirral to searching around demolition yards to simply taking other people 'rubbish' and looking through it before it goes to the tip ! ' With their blessing we hasten to add !'
Often materials will stayed stored in the studio or in the cellar for months, even years before we get to use them of remember their
existence and how they can come together for a particular piece
Manchester Art Fair
The Manchester Art Fair is the outlet we use for our personal and combined, fine art, creative work. We work on a larger scale and the pieces we make are much more influenced by other factors a well as the core of our philosophy to do with environmental issues and the acceptance of the beauty of all natural things
Manchester Art Fair have established an online shop called EASEL and it is now live selling work from all the studios and artists that would have been exhibiting at the MAF 2022. We have work on show, so get online and have a look
New dates for MAF are 4th-6th November
Potfest in the Pens 2022
We had great time last weekend at The Potfest in the Pens 3rd 4th and 5th June
It was great experience
with potters from all
over the country and
even some from
So good to have people returning year after year to our stand to purchase more pieces and to tell us how much they love the pieces they have already bought. Quite humbling actually. Hopefully we'll be back in 2023 . As soon as we know the dates we'll publish them !!!
An incredible retail development driven by the market and market hall developments. If anyone wants to see how a development in one area of a town can influence the surrounding area in a positive way then they need to look at the way the Market development has transformed the Altrincham area, and is still doing so after seven years when the market really opened .
It's a friendly market that has gone
back to the essential feel of what
markets used to be like
