Gosia is a ceramicist who makes a wide range of functional craft and design for the home. They are with her ideal home in mind. Her work is a gorgeous collection of sensitive drawings and textures on bold shapes in biscuit textured clays. Sometimes her work resembles architecture and sometimes her work is figurative. It is never the same twice.
When Gosia is at the studio she inspires thought and concentration and she’s got a lot of technical advice up her sleeve for you!

Mandy is our resident print maker. She recently upgraded her beech wood relief printing press to a swanky Rollaco Kudos – which she is proud to say, is made in Britain.
Mandy’s prints are a mixture of collage, lino cuts, wood cuts and mixed media. Mandy depicts a broad range of subjects in her art from chickens and dogs to people kissing at train stations, to people jumping near the beach and homes and peoples families. Scenes in her artworks generously span the whole canvas and the perspective always draws the viewer in, into a very personal view point.
Mandy works at Mews Art Studio where she can be found gently and intently contemplating her art works. Or having snacks and being quizzical about the other artist’s creations.
Trump card: Unpredictability.

Introducing Kim Bodycombe, who has recently joined us in Mews Art Studio.
Kim’s space is in the first part of the studio which is just as well as she has recently smashed her knee. She is a fine artist and can’t decide whether she prefers working in oil or acrylic paints. She does most of her painting outside on site for a few hours, and then the final touches in the studio. You can see a number of her local and Lake district paintings here.
And she sings.
