In these days of mass produced objects, it is comforting to know that there are still craftspeople working by hand and creating wonderful and unique jewellery, ceramics, textiles, furniture or other crafts. Many draw their inspiration from nature and the world around them, each has a unique approach to their work and the area they have chosen to specialize in. Over 90 contemporary designer-makers from England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland are featured in this book. Working in a variety of materials from metals to plastic to textiles to wood and more, these artisans represent the best of contemporary British design. One designer works with antique textiles repurposing them into contemporary designs. Another creates delicate jewellery inspired by wild flowers. One jewellery maker melts down unwanted silver and creates new pieces that will develop their own history. Still others work across a variety of areas following where their creativity leads them. The book contains over 200 images with each designer-maker's work illustrated with photographs of their work, often commissioned specifically for Handmade in Britain. There is information about each individual s background and their creative philosophy.
