Contemporary silver jewellery, inspired by nature, crafted by hand. Beautifully designed jewellery based upon the fluid forms of the ocean and abstracted organic structures.
This year I've been busily painting, and I'm exhibiting paintings for the first time at the Southville Centre as part of the Trail. You'll find them in the main hall - I'll be pleased to meet you and answer any questions.
There are many more images on www.ruthander.co.uk.
I make delicate, light filled, expressive monoprints. Owing as much to Japanese wood block printmakers as to landscape painters, I try to show the movement and light in landscapes.
The prints are made by rolling ink onto a piece of glass or plastic, then taking an impression by hand onto tissue or Japanese paper. In this way layers of colour and texture are built up. The quality of the paper dictates the texture and transparency of the picture.
Scottish colourist Cliff Hanley makes paintings and prints celebrating light and colour and concentrating on the 'human situation'.
Before moving West he ran his own gallery in London.

I am a copper worker making 'Arts and Crafts' influenced functional art copper. Items that I make include:
Photograph Frames and Mirrors:
Lamps and Light Fittings;
House Name Plates.
My work is heavily influenced by the Newlyn Industrial Class and the Glasgow Style which flourished during the start of the last century.
I am an illustrator working mostly these days on architectural subjects. Using the mediums of pen and ink, watercolour and photography, I am trying to document both the local environment in BS3 as well other more well known areas of the city.
Local jewellery designer/maker. Inspired by the repetitive urban landscape, frenetic inner city life, the sea and the changing natural environment.
Working largely in silver, enamels and semi-precious stones using various surface treatments, traditional techniques and developing technologies.
Sculpture and painting.... celebrating women of all sizes (with a few men and animals)
In 2007 I moved to Britain and set up my fashion & recycling company re-Collect. Recycling and Design come naturally to me; I love the creative challenge of transforming discarded objects into useful and beautiful products. I have an inherent disapproval of waste which makes me a kind of eco-warrior, I love beauty and originality, which draws me to the fashion-world, and I've always been pretty skint which means I've had to be crafty and stylish rather than a follower of fashion.
Landscapes are my inspiration and how light and colour evoke their personal atmosphere. Back in Herefordshire, I was surrounded with beautiful countryside, the Welsh mountains, the Malvern Hills and I have also travelled to the west coasts of Scotland and Ireland. Since moving to Bristol, the urban landscape also appeals, especially the colourful houses perched on the hills which are great challenge for my developing printmaking skills.
