Pete Tibble (AKA Copperhead Road)
“I worked as a BBC cameraman for 24 years, but before that was an electronics engineer. When i saw some etched copper decorative work on the internet it reminded me of having etched circuit boards as a teenager, so I thought I’d have a go again. Then after doing a silversmithing course I started making jewellery and also applying the techniques to making layered landscapes of different metals.
I still like to always have a camera to hand, but stick to stills photography these days. My latest relaxation is making silly models in polymer clay”
Rosie Callinan designs and creates original mosaics, garden sculptures and ornaments. She draws her inspiration from the natural world and especially her garden. Many of her recent works use glass as the main mosaic material which allows her to incorporate more colour and light. Her work includes mosaic birds, mirrors and wall hangings for both house and garden. One of her passions is creating mosaics made from rock, pebbles and stones that have been picked up from beaches and other places in the days when travel was allowed!
