Pat Ellacott

Pat is an artist based in Clitheroe who specialises in drawings/paintings of livestock and British countryside animals.
Her interest is in capturing the shape and form of the creatures - their bodies becoming landscapes of character.
Pat is skilled in drawing but uses her own technique of rubbing pastel and graphite into oiled paper, which gives a soft effect. a hybrid of drawing and painting. Commissions possible

Lucy Wray

Lucy Wray

Lucy Wray explores and develops unwanted materials to create art from salvaged resources giving them new and beautiful forms. Inspired by the British countryside she delights in creating imagery in which the composite reclaimed materials are not immediately obvious. Its only when you look a little closer that you recognize certain recycled elements. She open to commissions - ask at gallery.

Katy O'Neil

We are very excited to be showing the ceramics of Katy O'Neil for the first time in our Autumn exhibition.
Katy who is based in Lancashire creates contemporary wrap pots. She loves working in this versatile medium.
The pots are constructed using textured or chunky black clay before being decorated with slips.
The pale facades of the pots provide a strong aesthetic contrast with highlights of blues, yellow or orange.
Each pot is unique and functionally watertight.

Xuella Arnold

Xuella Arnold

This Autumn we are highlighting one of the many British jewellery makers whose pieces we stock.
Xuella Arnold designs & individually crafts her collections in her studio in Devon. Using a number of traditional techniques she loves to create jewellery which tells stories with magical imagery. Hares, foxes, birds and bees are popular motifs.
Some are made of silver, and for many she uses bronze and semi precious stones. Bronze is a lovely coloured metal with the look of antique gold. The results are pieces with a good weight to them and a unique earthy rustic look.
