Glass on Glass – Elaine Mason
Glass on glass uses reclaimed glass to create unique and vibrant pieces of colour and texture from a material otherwise detained for landfill – recycling at its best!
Inspiration comes from the natural world and also from the belief that light invites lightness – glass is not just another medium to convey ideas and colour it has a depth, luminosity and clarity which can be uplifting and joyful.
Designs can be created or adapted to individual requirements.
Murgatroyd & Bean
On a green hill near a winding ‘Shire river, sits the workshop of Murgatroyd & Bean… Peep into the window, past the geranium leaves, and you will find hand stitched curiosities made from colourful and tactile textiles; wool felt, british tweeds, naturally dyed fabrics, and vintage finds. All created to original designs.
Also known for his food writing and photography in Herefordshire and Wye Valley Life, Martin says, “Painting has always been a passion and travelling throughout Herefordshire you are surrounded by the most glorious landscape. This series of work reflects my love of the movement, colour, interlocking woven shapes and the ancient pathways, which always seem to draw me back to the distant hills I grew up exploring.
A rural artist, drawing inspiration from the Marches landscape, I enjoy exploring many different papers and media; a stick and wide flat brush are liberating tools. A distillation of observations, my paintings attempt to evoke atmosphere and- energy. Lifestudy enables me to approach other subjects with renewed vigour and a fresh eye. I exhibit widely throughout Herefordshire and the surrounding counties, and my work hangs in private collections around the world.
Victoria Harrison Mosaic Artist studied Fine Art in the north east of England, specialising in Environmental Sculpture. Whilst a student she continued to find herself drawn to the vitality and versatility of the world of mosaic. Her love of bold colour and her fascination with the qualities of light and texture are ideally suited to this medium. Her art and love of nature are always evolving, challenging her to look for form and image that is novel, beautiful and timeless. Victoria works with schools and local communities teaching and inspiring others through her mosaic workshops and courses. One of her greatest joys is applying her skills and understanding to enable a newcomer to the medium take pride and pleasure in creating a unique and memorable piece of mosaic art.
