Keeping up with the theme of featuring other artists, i thought i would include a post about my good friend Jess Langford. Jess is one of the hardest working people I know and you can tell just by looking at her work and how much time and effort goes into her ideas and outcomes. Her work is incredibly contemporary and has a lovely tactile quality to it, combining ceramics, fabrics and threads to make pieces of wearable art that is like nothing else i have seen before.
I have featured Jess on my blog before when i bought an amazing pair of ceramic ear rings so have a look back to see it. Here is a pic of a teacup and saucer set i bought from Jess printed with her own illustrations. For more info on Jess and her work click on the following links !
Who wants a boring old floral crown?! Not i! I was totally in love with Sarah Davidson's Pom Pom Crowns as soon as i saw them. They are beautifully original and the colours she has used are incredibly complimentary. I went to college and university with Sarah and its amazing seeing her work develop from when we first met at 16! Her illustrations are thoughtful and original with elements of stitch and weave incorporated for that extra tactile quality. In my opinion she really is one of the best up and coming designer makers out there and she is doing so well for herself, it is great to see! For more information check out the following links;
