The Maker’s Art October 2021 to April 2022

As well as offering a range of products reflecting Heath Robinson’s work, the shop sells a selection of one-off items, designed and handmade by acclaimed, locally based artisans and artists.

The Maker’s Art is a contemporary range of ceramics, jewellery, and printed textiles that complement the imagination and enchantment of Heath Robinson’s work. The makers change every six months—this is now our ninth group—adding more valuable creative partnerships and creating a distinctive decorative art marketplace at the Heath Robinson Museum.

 

The N L Ceramics Collection by Nicole Lyster

Striking and involving. Wheel thrown and hand-built stoneware ceramics designed for the home, available in the Heath Robinson Museum Shop.

Nicole is a member of the Dacorum and Chiltern Potters Guild. Falling in love with ceramics at school, she has built her design practice alongside careers in teaching and management consultancy. Inspiration for her work comes from the juxtaposition of the built environment and nature in the city. Our functional and non-functional ceramics are made at her garden studio in Harrow.

Jess is a Crafts Council registered designer maker, specialising in printed textiles and natural dyes. Her kaleidoscopic effects on natural fabrics are inspired by botanical nature and geometry.

The Lizzy Collection by Lizzy Chambers

Jewellery designed and created to celebrate magical worlds in handblown glass, available in the Heath Robinson Museum Shop.

Lizzy’s upbringing in rural Leicestershire led her to a love of nature that she now expresses in her botanical jewellery. At her Wembley studio, she preserves highly pigmented flower petals grown in the UK with some from her own garden and encloses them in small glass globes. Her handcrafted glass jewellery design ranges include ‘Steampunk’ and ‘Crystal’ alongside a bespoke service for preserving wedding flowers.
