Salma Nassef

Battersea/Nine Elms

A collection of pieces, exploring different creative narratives and techniques. Nassef's canvas piece is inspired by a love of drawing faces in abstract form, which is why she has painted her family onto a fabric canvas.

She will also display a music video, which showcases a first attempt at special effects and editing inspired by dance music. She has also created a piece inspired by nature, whereby organic materials are preserved in resin, PVA glue and plastic pockets. Both of the handmade dresses were inspired by flowers and patterns in nature; each dress was made using different techniques and decorated using different methods, including lino printing and hand embroidery, her favourite technique.

These quirky pieces vary between vibrant primary colours to black and metallic. She has also used her collection of buttons and tiles to create a limited edition of small mosaic pictures with black frames.

Four artists showing pottery, paintings, textiles and silver jewellery. Affordable and original works of art.

Jill Storey:
Twickenham artist, Jill Storey, has lived and painted in the area for many years. Inspired by foreign travel, the light and colour of new destinations, many of her sketchbook drawings, done on site, are later developed into larger paintings. She has a continual fascination for the Dorset coastline and the Thames, its riverside views, parks and buildings. She enjoys drawing, mixed media and experimenting with the fluid movement of watercolour contrasted with the rough textural marks of pastel. She has taught and exhibited widely in the Richmond area and had paintings accepted at open exhibitions in London.

Maggie Laing:
Maggie makes silver jewellery inspired by everyday objects. Her early work was based on tools used for gardening, cooking, sewing and woodworking. She aims to celebrate the role these unsung heroes play in our lives and to reveal their beauty. Her work took a new direction when she came upon some Victorian ceramic shards on the Kent coast. She saw the makings of a tiny teacup in one shape and a jug in another. By adding the missing parts in silver — spouts, handles and saucers — a whole new collection of jewellery was born.

Peta Cottee:
Peta makes small bags, purses, glasses cases, mobile phone covers, key chains and bag charms. All are handmade using leather and tweed offcuts from Italy’s and Scotland’s clothing and fashion trades.  Peta learned to sew as a child and was inspired to start again having found her old sewing machine gathering dust in the attic. She likes to put together strong colours and prints to make unique but useful accessories. She also makes handmade cards with scraps of fabric and buttons collected since the 1930s by her husband’s grandmother, who was a seamstress.

Peter Mumford:
Peter makes distinctive wheel-thrown pottery suitable for day-to-day domestic use. He throws and fires his work in his garden studio in Putney. His love of sailing and fixing up boats has led him to appreciate the beauty that can be found in functional objects. All his pottery is food and dishwasher safe and fired to 1250 degrees using lead-free glazes and stoneware clay. His work has been shown in galleries in London and Cornwall and he regularly shows at local fairs, including the recent very successful Barnes Fair.

51 Ashlone Road, SW15 1LS
Kim Winter: Flextiles

Tooting/Furzedown

65

Kim Winter of Flextiles loves to echo structures and processes from nature in her art, from the mathematical basis for a spiral shell to the chemistry of leaf prints on fabric. She finds the alchemy of transforming fluffy sheep’s fleece into a robust felt sculpture, or using plant material to transform a silk scarf or weave into an organic form, endlessly fascinating.

Living in a city offers plenty of opportunities to observe the interaction between urban life and nature, providing inspiration and sometimes materials for Kim's practice. Nature is often ephemeral, but she relishes trying to capture its essence in a more permanent form in her work.
