Elizabeth de Ath

Mandeep Dhiman

Mixed Media

Mixed media designer Mandeep Dhiman creates exuberant, decorative pieces out of a range of found materials, 'the plasticy the better', she says. They range from knitted body adornments to large-scale sculptures bursting with colour - a love of colour being a legacy of her Indian heritage. 'I love my work because of its decoration, intricacy and over-the-top nature,' she says.


Dawn Dupree


Textile artist Dawn Dupree creates evocative, semi-abstract urban landscapes by building up printed layers of colour and images. They are full of unexpected surprises and juxtapositions each telling a separate narrative often slightly unsettling undertones. 'I like to make things that are attractive, colourful and have a visual richness so that people are forced to look a bit more closely at them and see unexpected things,' she says.

Ndidi Ekubia


Manchester-born silversmith Ndidi Ekubia is absorbed in every stage of her work, from the design to patterning the finished piece. She creates innovative, yet functional silverware by raising sheets of silver to form vessels shapes which she then manipulates using hammers and stakes to create organic patterns giving the vessels a sense of fluidity and movement. She says, 'My method of making is based on the idea of pushing the metal to its limits, yet allowing it to retain its natural fluidity.'
