Five creatives explore the environment through mark making, form and traditional craft and processes.
Janet Schooley Helena P Stylianides Soo Durham Denise
Coupland Ron Harrison
Janet Schooley is a sculptor, whose work is inspired by found and organic objects and their textures. She graduated from De Montfort University in 2002 and has exhibited locally and nationally.
Helena P Stylianides is a sculptor whose work focuses on the essence of plant and animal life, dynamic in their varying shapes and by the abstract forms that they inspire. Helena trained at Brighton Polytechnic and Chelsea School of Art where she gained an MA. She has exhibited her work at outdoor events and gallery exhibitions. Her major work has been realised through public art commissions and community projects in London, Essex, Greece and Lincolnshire.
Denise Coupland is a third year student, working towards a BA in Decorative Arts. A designer/maker with a passion for textiles and surface pattern, Denise's work is an exploration into mark making, stitch and form inspired by 1950s Denby pottery designed by Tibor Reich and Glyn Colledge.
Soo Durham is a ceramicist, intrigued by the soft translucency of parian clay especially when
lit from behind or placed in direct sunlight. Soo works with a limited monochrome palette and minimal amounts of glaze in order to let the subtle translucency of the parian clay dominate her work.
Ron Harrison is a graphic designer who will show his monochrome photographic images of Nature in Winter which highlight stark contrasts of the natural world in the winter months.
