Crafter

Olivia Wilson
I create textile sculptures using a variety of fabric manipulation techniques.

My Name is Olivia and i live in a small town in Northamptonshire called Kettering.

I live very close to some of the country’s most beautiful countryside which is where i get a lot of my inspiration from.

I have always been an artist and i currently specialise in Textiles sculpture. I also teach Art and Design

My pieces come from a world i have always imagined since i can remember. A world that exists deep within an ancient British Woodland.

Small animals and insects have always fascinated me and i have always been interested in their little world and Eco systems.

Ruth Lyne Contemporary Glass
I work with glass to create a range of work from jewellery to wall panels.

I have been working with fused glass since 1998 and now combine it with silver to make

jewellery reminiscent of seaglass or pebbles.

I don’t try to replicate the natural world with my jewellery but I hope wearing it may bring back happy memories of finding the perfect pebble glistening in the sunshine.

Although inspired by the coast, I make all my glass jewellery in my studio in rural Northamptonshire,

a very long way from the sea…
