Maker Cabinets - Tŷ Pawb

Cymraeg

Showcasing Innovation, Craft and Design.

Tŷ Pawb aims to support makers, artists and crafts people from
all disciplines and backgrounds by providing them with a platform
for their work in our new Maker Cabinets.

We provide a showcase opportunity for our Maker Space resident
artists and makers who work independently and with Tŷ Pawb
constituents to create products for sale in our Maker Cabinets.

We are part of the community of traders within Tŷ Pawb which
exists as a unique live research model into the coexistance of arts
and markets within one broad cultural offer.

Through our socially engaged Designer Maker Project local people
work with Tŷ Pawb to produce the Hippodrome Lamp – a beautiful
steam bent and CNC cut lampshade made to order. The lamp was
designed by Tim Denton.

We also present a small bespoke range of jewellery, textiles and
ceramics alongside an interesting selection of magazines and an
eclectic mix of greeting cards.

 

Sara Jane Harper

MAKER CABINETS, feature the work of painter and ceramist Sara Jane Harper, based in North Wales.

Since completing her Master’s Degree at Reading University in 1987 Sara Jane has continued to produce work influenced by the symbolism of primitive ceramics and sculpture.

Full of colour, optimism and individuality, Sara Jane’s hand painted pots and vessels incorporate a representation of the female form, depictions of abstract symbols and the influence of Taoism which together embody a vocabulary that details Sara Jane’s working signature.

Alongside her art practice Sara Jane has led many art projects and workshops for people of all ages including the production of murals, mosaics, ceramic decorations and hand built objects.

Tŷ Pawb Maker's Showcase

Kirsti Hannah Brown

Kirsti’s hand-built stoneware ceramics are inspired by her love of Western Celtic shorelines and the sea. The small necks and shoulders of her slab bottles are created using thinly rolled clay, giving the work a figurative human shape that stems from Kirsti’s “fascination with how man has used the landscape around him.” Bowls and vessels employ a different method of construction whereby ‘worms’ of clay are pinched, coiled and smoothed over to offer the impression of washed stones and shells. To evoke the colours of the sea, each piece is decorated in her Hawarden based studio using a mixture of turquoise, copper and white glazes, while earthy shades are fashioned through a variety of clays.

Kirsti Hannah Brown is a member of Makers Guild Wales.

Maud Goldberg

Placing people and the architecture of our environment, natural and urban, at the heart of contemporary art craft and design, Maud Goldberg has designed a range of products which have been manufactured by a range of practitioners and feature braille motifs that are translations of colour fields.

Initially conceived for an Arts Council Funded commission, the ‘Sense of Place’ project hosted workshops that embraced difference and diversity.

Rachel Holian 

Rachel’s installations of wheel thrown miniature porcelain vessels and stamps explore relationships and meaning. Each collection is grouped in a specific way to give meaning to a particular grouping. This arrangement is personal to Rachel but should have a resonance with the audience that will grow and develop meaning over time. The installations are treasured items intended to bring joy and invoke memories.

Rachel has worked with porcelain since graduating from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2005. After completing her Masters in ceramics in 2018, Rachel has been producing wheel thrown vessels which explore the importance of the decorative arts.

Rachel has recently been admitted to the prestigious Craft Potters Association of GB
