This Summer we are featuring a couple of stands who show the greatest of skills in their chosen craft. In July's Crafted By Hand we have 'Ceramics' as our theme, and extremely excited to have two renowned ceramicists; Jennie McCall & Anna Whitehouse!
Raised in the Scottish Borders, Jennie’s early creative influences came from the local textile industries and the rich traditions and folklore of the region.
Exhibiting across the UK and internationally, Jennie McCall is a Sculptor and Illustrator working in the Midlands. Her award winning work evokes mystery and intrigue with masterful use of porcelain capturing it’s translucent and pure qualities.
Jennie's striking sculptures and illustrations are exhibited in shows nationwide and overseas. She has received several awards and has work featured in many private collections including the Royal Mail and the Royal Society of Arts.
A fascination in marks of erosion and an on-going exploration of tactile objects fuels the making of ceramic artist Anna Whitehouse.
Currently based in Harrogate North Yorkshire, Anna's practice has evolved from growing up in the region and spending time outdoors. From scrambling over rocks in the Dales to scouring the beach for fossils near Whitby, these experiences can be seen echoed in her work.
Ultimately Anna aims to create beautiful and intriguing objects that celebrate stolen moments of observation and inquisitiveness.
