Jaki Darlington and Caroline Hewitt are Glossop based creative partnership Pentimento Ceramics and Print. They work from their studio at home and produce hand built ceramic sculpture, wood mounted British birds, ceramic tiles and fine art prints. Their miniprint printimaking series is an investigation of the myth and folklore associated with birds. Their homonym series of prints is a playful visual interpretation of the English Language, using collograph, drypoint and paper lithography printmaking techniques.
Kathryn Fruish creates jewellery that is inspired by ancient symbols, words and imagery, particularly symbols with ancient meanings like pentacles, spirals and triskelions. Her work depicts animals and nature such as hares and foxes and also mythical creatures like fairies, angels and mermaids stamped into silver. She uses gemstones and explores their properties and magic to create motifs. She specialises in lockets.
