The ocarina has 8 holes, the flute has 6 – they are a matching pair both pitched in the key of F.”

John Chappell Nerikomi Pendants

John Chappell three nerikomi pendants 5.5cm / 3.5cm / 3cm

“Nerikomi is the Japanese process of staining clay and then folding and slicing it to create intricate patterns. Although I was originally a wheel-thrower, this intensive handbuilding process appeals to me more as (if you are accurate and careful!) the results can be intensely colourful and visually very striking. The tiny details are complemented by a super smooth finish – the very fine white stoneware is sanded in stages to leave a really tactile surface.”

Amanda Packham
‘Be’

Ceramics/Sculpture tutor
Handbuilt flat coiled high fired terracotta and grog mix , aged and washed with red iron oxide.

20cm X 20cm

‘In my degree in sculpture I focussed on ceramics as a second subject and chose to persue a career in teaching, working with diverse groups in the community of Edinburgh. I went on to work in secondary education in Hampshire and then Glasgow. I have worked in specialist education at Freeman college, and then retraining in Horticulture to work at Seven Hills school. I have worked with primary age to Open College students.
My work is influenced by my horticultural and architectural interests. When building I focus on weight and balance mixing different clay, grog and local clay to tint surfaces. The pieces I produce are strip coiled and slab built, abstract organic in nature and incorporate oxides to enhance texture. I have been producing work for over 35 years and have exhibited in galleries and exhibitions in Dundee, Edinburgh, Manchester, Hampshire and Sheffield.’



Patricia Lane
A Splash of Colour

Mixed media
Image size: 14.5cm x 15cm
Framed size 30cm x 30cm
Off white frame and mount
Texture incorporated into the painting.

‘I work in mixed media, mainly acrylic paints and inks, adding all kinds of different materials to bring texture and drama to my work. I like to be experimental with techniques, which often brings an element of abstraction to my painting style, which I love.

My inspiration comes from the landscape of the UK, Andalucia and some of the wonderful places I have visited.  My paintings are not necessarily exact representations of a particular view but, more about the essence of the landscapes that I see. Most important to me are the memories evoked by a particular location; the light, atmosphere, colours and textures, weather conditions.’

Helen Pollitt

Medium vase
15cm high

‘I am a self taught potter and I am passionate about working with clay; I love the fact that it comes from the earth and how I can work it with my bare hands creating something I have imagined. I have been working for the past five years in a small studio in my back garden in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. I mostly throw on the wheel and like to make functional and decorative stoneware. Sometimes i make groups of pots like a small set of teacups with a teapot to match. At other times I make one off pieces such as a candleabra. I interested in colour and I like to experiment with making by making my own glazes; I fire in an electric kiln.’

Helen teaches wheel throwing for adults and children at the Art House.

Elesha Searles ‘Of Earth and Air’

This is a acrylic landscape painted on a sealed and preserved London Plane leaf. This leaf was sourced in Sheffield and is a special piece of transient art.
The piece comes framed and is a totally unique item.
Rustic wooden photo frame size height 58cm width 47.5cm.

I first started painting landscapes on leaves at the art house so thought it would be lovely to donate a leaf painting to the art house auction.

Hi Im Elesha. I am a volunteer at The Art House. The Art House is a very special place for me as it has given me the confidence to grow as an artist which I never thought I was, develop my skills to support other people and improve my own and others wellbeing. #thearthousehelpedme

I love creating art it keeps me present, helps me to make sense of feelings and thoughts and also provides an escapism. I started creating artworks as my therapy for my wellbeing and to help me with my mental health.

I use nature as a muse and the art I create is in response to my connection with the universe, exploring the geometrical patterns present within. I love to use bright colours in creating images that conjure up magical, elements of fantasy and of wonder using psychedelic and natural themes.
You can see all my art at www.facebook.com/artbyelesha or www.instagram.com/eco_elesha_art


Angie Heal
‘Head’

I fell into pottery three years ago, when all the art courses were full at the Art House and I needed to do something in the mean time. I loved it from my very first session. ‘Head’ is constructed from stoneware clay with oxide and glaze and is influenced by my (previous!) love of travel.

 


Annie Wattam
Vase
21.5cm tall
8cm diameter

‘I made this vase at the Arthouse and it’s decorated with two of my favourite Arthouse glazes, developed by the wonderful team there.

I first came to the Arthouse as I was looking for the next step in my pottery journey after a couple of semesters of evening classes at Sheffield College. The Open Studio facility has worked well for me and over time, I’ve been able to experiment and grow as an amateur potter. But the wellbeing benefits of using the Arthouse have been invaluable to me. Sometimes the stresses of my day job feel overwhelming but the Arthouse is always there for me. This was especially so in early 2019 when I needed to step off the hamster wheel for a few weeks. At that time, being able to engross myself in making, in such a welcoming an understanding community played a significant role in my recovery.

Thank you for helping the Arthouse.

About the Artist

Angela was inspired by words from childhood, which spark ideas and are sometimes included in her art, which developed mid life as child rearing was finishing. Initially mainly textile based and featuring embroidery, a skill from schooldays, then her love of photography and printmaking developed during an Access course in Art and Design. Angela has photographs in a book ’Sheffield a Civilised Place’,and she has also won photographic competitions.

As she continues her creative journey, places visited and photographed evoke memories thoughts and feelings of the essential element of a place or time, that she represent in her work. Recurring motifs include circles, trees, waves plants and architecture. Angela loves the tools of her trade and hoards and drools over paints and paper. Amongst other places she has exhibited at the Art House and is a member of Sheffield Printmakers.

Ali Kitley-Jones
Mandala for March 2020
Dimensions: 40cm x 40cm
Acrylic on canvas

‘My art making is an expression of my emotional and mental state. Making colourful Mandalas helps me to meditate through difficult feelings of loss and death.
In this one I was feeling quite liberated by lockdown but at a loss as my work was cancelled overnight. I was also feeling frightened. The flames around the edge of the mandala are my protection, between outside influences and my inner world,shown in the centre of the image. Painted during lockdown in mid March.

Liz Craven
Dipping Bowls
Dimensions: 2.5″ approx in diameter
Finished in blue glaze

3 small folded bowls, handbuilt in stoneware, with spoons. Ideal for dipping bowls or chutney and mustard.

‘I’m a member of the Art House Open Studios and a Volunteer at the Art house. I enjoy building by hand and have been exploring the possibilities of “origami” folded bowls and vessels for some time and have made a variety of shapes by folding and darting a single slab of clay.These sets of bowls are some of my favourite shapes.


Sarah Vanic
Breakfast Set

I studied fine art in London and St. Alban’s in the 80’s and 90’s and then came up to Sheffield to further my interest in the field of Art and Therapy. I went on to develop my interest on an Art Psychotherapy course, focusing predominantly in the field of mental health for adults through creative therapy. I have pursued this career ever since.
I am also excited by starting new ventures and started up my own business called Chupinka Pottery. This led to further success in helping co-create The Art House’s pottery studio in 2015.
I love working with clay and my current work revolves around throwing on the wheel with terracotta and creating wall relief sculptures reminiscent of things found by the sea.


Sara Jackson
Psychedelic Goddess
Frame included

I am a contemporary artist from the United Kingdom and my art could best be described as a melange of expressionism, and surrealism. My paintings are an extension of my poetry and are bold and expressive.

To me, painting is a form of self healing and has helped me overcome past trauma and despondency. Colours are an expression of emotions, and are careful placed within each piece to connect to the viewers consciousness and feelings.

Mary Else
Burst

My work
My pieces are slab and coil built. I use different layers of glazes, Oxides, slips and under glazes to achieve a varied colourful surface. New work also includes a variety of clay bodies. My current work is influenced by natural elements and formations, such as rock, shell and fish shapes, seed pods cats and music. With all of my work, colour, form and texture are of equal importance to me. I always wish to create a whole piece in which the colour is part of the form, both inside and out. I also allow the material and its properties to guide where the work will go. This determines the colour and shapes/patterns used. I take part in Sheffield Open up every year and have found that it’s a great way to promote yourself and meet with the public. I have been creating with clay for a long Time!!!

Some of my favourite Ceramic Artists include Lucie Rie, Mo Jupp and Grayson Perry’

Colette Cameron
Flight

50 by 32 cm
Watercolour, ink and wax resist
Untitled, unframed

‘I have devised and delivered art workshops for over 20 years. What I have learnt over the years is that the biggest obstacle to creativity is self – judgment, which dampens enthusiasm and prevents progress, and takes the fun out of it!

I paint in watercolour (with ink, oil pastel and wax resist) I’m inspired by traditional Japanese and Chinese ink painting, and my relationship with the natural world informs my work. Keeping things spontaneous helps me find my authentic voice.

I love teaching at the art house, especially the wonderful creative atmosphere from different activities going on all over the building.

Loretta Mayfield
Bear and Cub

Dimensions:

‘My favourite subjects to make are figurative, either of family members or animals. I draw from life when possible. I also draw from images on the internet. I usually start by making two clay pinch pots which I join to make hollow bodies, adding limbs and a head to make the basic form. I like to challenge myself to make a series of objects decreasing in size until my hands can’t make one any smaller. I enjoy the feel of the cold damp clay in my hands, and my sense of connection to the earth, nature and history. From something so basic something precious might evolve’.

Art is such an important part of my life and I am so grateful to have this space; to be apart of a supportive community/family. The piece I have donated, is called Blue Water…one of many pieces painted on this subject – sea, lakes, rivers easily hold my attention, I become easily become transfixed & everything drifts away… watching the way light reflects off its surface… or simply enjoy swimming, diving, snorkelling in the world beneath.. It’s fluid nature inspires me to remember to move, to adapt, that nothing stays the same….’

Angela Harpham ‘Dawn Rise’

Dimensions: 44 x 44 cm framed

About the Artist

Angela was inspired by words from childhood, which spark ideas and are sometimes included in her art, which developed mid life as child rearing was finishing. Initially mainly textile based and featuring embroidery, a skill from schooldays, then her love of photography and printmaking developed during an Access course in Art and Design. Angela has photographs in a book ’Sheffield a Civilised Place’,and she has also won photographic competitions.

As she continues her creative journey, places visited and photographed evoke memories thoughts and feelings of the essential element of a place or time, that she represent in her work. Recurring motifs include circles, trees, waves plants and architecture. Angela loves the tools of her trade and hoards and drools over paints and paper. Amongst other places she has exhibited at the Art House and is a member of Sheffield Printmakers.

Lyn Hodnett – ‘Goose Girl’

Lino cut
21 x 14.8cm

‘Lyn Hodnett’s instantly recognizable work features strong, robust women; bright and bold ladies cavorting. Her work has a strong narrative slant and is influenced by religions, mythology and folklore. Vibrant colour and humour are central features of her paintings.

Lyn’s preferred medium is acrylic paint on paper or card, combined with charcoal, coloured pencils and varnish, resulting in great depth of colour and vitality. Recently the colour, although still rich, is darker, as though everything is bathed in a mystical twilight. The humour too is more veiled and intriguing.’ — Karen Sherwood, Cupola Gallery, Sheffield

Tom James – ‘Mini moon-jar’

10cm wide, 15cm tall. Wheel thrown

Until the Art House came into my life nearly 4 years ago, my whole life was about music. I’m a composer, horn player, music teacher, pianist but now I am also a pottery fanatic!
I started wheel classes at the Art House after a debilitating back injury, and found it so relaxing and inspiring that I continued both throwing and handbuilding and started practicing every hour in the
day I could find. I’ve been in the building almost every day for 3 years…
As a dare to myself, I applied for the 2020 Great Pottery Throw Down, and after several nerve wracking auditions, won a place on the show! It was a fantastic experience, and has completely changed how I view my own work. I have more confidence in my abilities and realise that pottery should become a branch of my career.

I am starting to tutor classes when the Art House reopens, and hope to run classes on my current obsession – making unusual and functional flutes and ocarinas!
