Debbie George's work is a celebration of her passion for flowers and the objects with which she surrounds herself - from ceramics to fruits, feathers and stones. Landscape is an important influence that underlies her paintings, whether they are of particular places or still-life compositions. Debbie builds up layer upon layer of paint, creating a wonderful luminosity and depth that she reveals by scratching into and through the layers.

Virginia Graham's ceramics are curiously British, eccentric creations inspired by a bygone era. Using a combination of slip casting and hand building techniques, Virginia creates forms with many components, often recreating objects and placing them out of context. Floral transfers, metallic lustres and found objects are the finishing touches to her eclectic pieces that are precious and collectable yet ordinary and familiar.

Disa Allsopp likes to work with Silver and 18ct Gold in their raw, organic state. Fascinated by the natural textures and colours created when the metals are molten, she uses techniques such as hammering, bleaching (to whiten silver pieces) and oxidising (to blacken silver pieces) in order to shed the glossy look so often associated with gold and silver jewellery and create her subtle but very striking and collectable pieces.
