Travel Posters from the 1950's and 60's.
In a Britain before computers and colour television (except for a privileged few) posters were the most effective means of communication.
Posters proved to be an attractive and lucrative medium for the typographers, designers and illustrators of the period. The field became increasingly creative and adventurous, and you'll see some classic examples of bold, abstract and vibrant design work in our gallery sect
Moxon and Simms
Debby Moxon designs beautiful jewellery in heat coloured titanium.
Her outstanding skill and control has evolved from 25 years of exploring methods of texturing, and interference with the surface of this fascinating, unusual metal.
The timeless designs and subtle colouring show her mastery of this medium.
Ian Simmís skill and expertise in precision cutting and finishing create consistently excellent pieces.
Becky is based in Brighton where she has been working since graduating in 1999.
Becky takes her work through and illustrative process to create her narrative scenes, she moves her pieces from drawings to silver by piercing and adding texture the pieces are then finished with a mixture of matt, oxidised and polished surfaces to add depth and tone.
Abbot and Ellwood
Mike Abbot and Kim Ellwood set up their studio in 1990, they live and work just outside St Ives where they have been inspired by the light and colour that envelops their garden and studio. This can be seen in the bright and colourful work they produce by painting and printing on metal.
Their work is held in many public and private collections and they wildly exhibit across Europe and the USA

Her work features in leading collections and is the result of 28 years of innovation and experimentation with colour, texture and form.

Gailís jewellery is inspired by 1950ís textile design and incorporates foils and coloured compounds resulting in vibrant pieces which are highly finished in polished acrylic.
