Emi Gordon

Cutting fine lettering on stones has been my main craft for some time. Designing, drawing and cutting the appropriate letterforms for a particular context also play an important part in my work.  I am trying to make a stone piece which evokes viewers thoughts, emotions and images.  I also take commissions for house signs, house numbers and memorials.  www.emigordon.com

 

Kasumi Murai

I enjoy working with stoneware clay and making pottery for everyday use. My work is inspired by Japanese functional domestic ware and British lifestyle. I am a member of Anglian Potters (www.anglianpotters.org.uk) and regularly exhibit my work at annual exhibitions in Cambridge.

Born in Japan, I studied Japanese calligraphy since I was little, and later learnt Western calligraphy. A freelance letterer since 2009 in UK. Meanings, feelings, purposes, materials, and moments. Japanese culture is in my background but also admiring the culture in here, respecting all the traditional skills and craftsmanship. www.kcalligraphy.com

 

Kozue Schwartz

I was born and raised in Japan, and grew up with Japanese 80’s pop culture. After I studied graphic design and illustration in the US, I taught myself how to carve rubber stamps and started a small business.

I have made hundreds of custom portrait stamps.  I like simple yet cute things, and am attracted to organic lines which influence my artwork.

Currently,  I’m living in the UK, focusing more on prints and illustrations.
