Each is machine embroidered to produce the most exquisite piece which is then backed with Liberty fabric. Jackie hails from Chorley in Lancashire.

Jane Cox – We are so delighted to be stocking the work of this superb ceramicist. Her work has such quality that even those who know nothing about ceramics can tell how good it is.

We love Linda’s delightful glass – pretty trinket dishes and coasters, and charming decorative pieces, fused glass squares with fish, beach huts and flowers, mounted on whitewashed wood blocks and gorgeous hanging hearts. Her quirky hanging glass chickens in bright greens, blues and reds are such fun and would make a lovely gift.

Liz Clammer

Liz Clammer Liz Clammer

When Liz Clammer first showed us her little yachts in frames we were enchanted by them. Made for years by Liz out of the flotsam and jetsam found on beaches and stored away till now, the little ships are perfect for a gallery by the sea. Unique, unrepeatable pieces of naïve art they are simply charming and considering their originality, very affordable.
