I’m Sally Ovenden and I make handmade ceramics right here in my garden studio in the heart of the New Forest. I am a collector; I love to forage in my (rather tiny) garden, comb the beach and explore my local area. I then use my treasures as inspiration for my work: the native birds, the local flora and fauna. I also observe the little things that many do not look out for: such as pebbles, shells, leaves and even bugs. I aim to bring you my interpretation of the most beautiful things using my favourite materials. I work primarily in stoneware clay with some porcelain and earthenware
Sarah Uniacke started making bags about 20 years ago in between jobs as an editor and developed a love of fabric and creating! Sarah is now ‘making’ pretty much full time to supply her ever growing audience. Cork is attractive and versatile and in her own worlds, it looks so luscious, is so soft to touch, comes in scrummy colours and is easy to sew without requiring reinforcement.
Cork oak takes 25 years to mature, is considered sustainable, it is naturally bouyant and fire retardant – although she has yet to test this theory! All Sarah’s products are hand-made in her studio in Sway.
