Abbott and Ellwood

'Over the Sea' hand printed metal brooch

Mike Abbott and Kim Ellwood live and work together, by the sea and moor just outside St Ives in Cornwall on the north coast in West Penwith one of the most spectacular pieces of coast in the country, with its incredible light, beautiful sea and wild landscapes.

‘Our work comes from the places and things we like – the beach, coastal walks, a paddle on our boat, a trip to far off lands… the things we see around us that trigger responses - a piece of coloured paper picked up, an old scrap from a junk shop, plastic washed by the sea, the colour of a wall with sun on it.’

Their contemporary collection of hand printed figurative brooches, with themes including the garden and the sea, are made to wear, display and hopefully to bring a smile! Their one-off hand printed figurative sculptures explore narrative themes loosely drawn…. individual characters emerge through the process of making, using images printed onto metal and found objects to tell a new story, creating objects with humour and pathos!

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 65 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
