About the Artist
Judy Reed is the mosaic artist JudyJamJar. She uses vintage china and other materials to create quirky and colourful mosaics for the home and garden.
Shonah Escombe works with glass using a range of techniques including stained glass, copper foiling and fused glass. Her designs are contemporary and fun.
May Anderson paints everything from bowls to chairs in traditional canal art style.
JudyJamJar was a prolific craftsperson for over 40 years and studied stained glass before discovering a passion for all things mosaic!
Inspired by a love of colour and pattern and using a range of materials her work is unique and often humorous. Many of the materials used are recycled including broken crockery, stained glass offcuts, leftover tiles, old roofing slates, jewellery and sea-glass. Her work includes small decorative pieces, wall art, mirrors, jewellery, garden ornaments and larger wall installations and outdoor sculpture.
Shonah has been working with wood and wool for many years but discovered the versatility of glass 3 years ago. She started working with lead and glass but found she could create more intricate and contemporary designs using the copper foil technique. She has also developed her skills by learning the art of fusing glass. Shonah’s work is colourful and fun.
May is a musician and originates from Yorkshire. Previously a ceramicist she became fascinated by the traditional decoration style of canal art during a walk along the canal in Skipton. Using enamel paints finished with varnish her work is highly stylised and suitable for indoor and outdoors.
During open studios the artists will be available to talk about their work and there will be ongoing demonstrations of mosaic making and/or glass cutting and/or canal art daily.
This is a working mosaic studio for JudyJamJar who runs regular one day ‘Introduction to Mosaics’ workshops, please see Facebook for details.
