I work with and know a lot of local artists. This is by no means the full list of eveything I like but here are some of my favourites:
Katharina Klug makes wheel-thrown ceramics out of porcelain. They are unique: unusual colours and really delicate
Abi Cochran works with silver to make intricate and unusual jewellery.
Janet Powell also makes jewellery. They are simple, stylish and contemporary
Clare Crouchman is a ceramic artist and printmaker. She uses abstract patterns and a variety of textures to create large ceramic panels similar to prints
Sara Paynter makes bowls and mugs with unusual slip decorations
