Light the World
by Mel Chambers

“Don’t you know yet? It is your light that lights the worlds” – Rumi. Using ancient 13th Century inlay techniques, carved not painted, each tile is individually hand carved into wet clay, inlaid, glazed and fired over three days. No tile can be replicated, making each bespoke piece a truly one of a kind, visual presence in your home. Commissions welcome.

Brandy by Tim Cotterill aka The Frogman

This festive frog has a rich silver nitrate red patina with a golden belly and will make a delightful seasonal gift. Tim Cotterill’s collection of bronze frogs, while giving the appearance of having been made from glass, are actually incredibly heavy, having been cast in solid bronze. You’ll find a wide range of Frogman limited edition bronze sculptures in the gallery.
