Cinzia Castellano
website
Abstract Painter Cinzia Castellano is a Florentine abstract painter. For more than 20 years she has been living and painting mainly in London, but also in New York and in her native town. Her pictorial vocabulary reverberates her experience of travelling, rooting and uprooting, and her response to different environments. Contrasts, idiosyncrasies and misunderstandings are part of her narrative. Painting for her is the possibility to explore something which is the core of human interaction: something that can happen beyond words.

Louise Moore Ceramics Louise’s ceramics are inspired by architecture and archaeology. She has a fascination with history and the idea of discovering aspects of the past through objects or buildings that evoke tales and memories of time and place. Louise visits historic sites to soak up the atmosphere, takes photographs and makes drawings, which are then manipulated on the computer to create images for transferring onto the clay surface using a photographic screen printing process, building layers of moments observed. Louise is currently involved in developing arts projects with National Trust properties.

Sarah Partridge

Ceramics, sculpture, mosaic Sarah’s ceramic sculptures are inspired by forms found in nature, featuring spirals and orbs with smooth and textured surfaces. Sarah explores patterns created by time, wind, and moving water eroding the surfaces they meet, revealing ripples, layers and crevices.
Sarah works with a variety of clay bodies, from pure white porcelain to heavily textured stoneware.

Jason Rose
website
Painting The inspiration for Jason’s paintings comes from many sources: friends and family; special places he has visited, dreams and visions he has; his favourite animals (including horses, wolves, butterflies and dolphins) and from his interest in the environment, spirituality and quantum mechanics.
Jason regularly undertakes portrait commissions of people, their children and their pets for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions.
