Morven Browne

Whitchurch, Shropshire

Morven, inspired by her rural upbringing in Dumfriesshire, explores the relationship of movement and light within the natural world with her work.

Her elegant sculptures reflect the ephemeral nature of this association; made from laminated birch, paper and metals such as silver, copper and brass which have been textured and patinated then soldered or riveted together.

Elizabeth Jardine Godwin

Elizabeth is a poet and artist whose book forms and 3D constructions are concerned with landscape, architecture and memory. She is fascinated by how metaphor and contingency help to form our understanding and remembrance of place.

By combining fragments of her own writing, various found materials and handmade paper, her work strives to create points of stillness and intimacy for the onlooker.

Gemma creates each unique piece from a mixture of metal, wire, paper, and paper clay which is then painted with acrylic and watercolours.

She spends many hours walking by the sea with her partner Neil and their young sons Reuben and Theo, she is continually inspired by the textures and colours on the beach, many of the happy dogs that she sees playing there have become immortalised in her pieces.
