Featured Designer Maker -

Tom Bramwell Designs

Tom bases his work on the world around him, mainly architecture but other man made items too. He's interested in man made structures that have been changed in some way by natural processes, whether natural chemicals, the weather or even just damage caused by plants and trees growing up and around something, as well as more geometric architectural formations he finds. He is keen to observe shapes forms and textures within each subject and portray that in the work whether it is large scale pieces or jewellery. He then abstract, adapt and replicate certain interests to create new innovative, contemporary designs.

I find the world a much more interesting place when nature has been interfered with mans plans and designs
