Rebekah Quantrill-Tozer – BA Engineer of the imagination. (Kitchen Artist @QTmade)
Started a new life in Norwich five years ago with her creative husband Nigel and their youngest son George. A big step into a new adventure. Having previously lived in Suffolk for 18 years where she was known as a visual community arts worker, using creative multidisciplinary skills to work alongside youth and community groups, multi-sector organisations and events teams across Britain. Her initial training in art and design, fine art, youth work, and sustainable environments has given her a wide ground to stand on and a great attitude to projects and creativity.
Norwich has now become an inspiration with its vibrancy, culture, history, stories and woodland threaded throughout her work. She has been on a creative journey creating lanterns, designing colouring books and making props for films. She exhibited her paintings last year at Anteros Gallery, and was the creative director for BeeSaviour Behaviours 2019 Lord mayors entry.
She is still dreaming up a million ideas. One of which was creating her own range of mugs (to make the print-maker within happy) she hopes you enjoy her first range of Printware.
A very talented mixed-media artist and painter, she lives in and works in Dorset, where she creates abstracts and semi-realist pieces, alongside coloured pencil realist animal portraits.
Rachel Hall – Fusiology Glass Art
Rachel has a passion for colour, pattern, shapes, nature and has always been creative. After years of working as an archaeologist, after having her own family and being settled back in her home county of Dorset, she decided to start her own fused glass business. Fusiology Glass Art began in 2017, after a days course of fusing glass and two years later after various craft fairs and commissions she added Silver Clay jewellery to her line. She recently treated herself to a “beast” of a kiln, where she can now make larger items which she is looking forward to featuring on these pages where they will be available to buy.
She hand cuts and designs unique fused glass jewellery and often combines them with silver clay to make unique pieces of jewellery. She also makes fused glass items such as bowls, soap dishes, nightlight holders and more using bullseye and other accessory glass. All of her jewellery is completed with sterling silver findings and come in gift boxes.
