ALICE CLARKE

Alice’s home in the farming valley of Nidderdale set in the heart of North Yorkshire is the inspiration for her work. In this collection “Sunday Best” she has captured the essence of Yorkshire. The farmer who has defined the landscape, who ties his Barbour together with string and says; “It’ll be right!” The farmer’s wife who brings the family together on Sunday’s for afternoon tea and makes sure everyone’s cup is full. At the end of the day when the last brew has been poured and the family say their goodbyes, all that’s left are the memories and remains captured in a simple stain of tea.

Alice’s collection consists of a variety of wearable’s, from large rings and neckpieces to interesting buttonhole fastenings. They are created from Yorkshire tea stained plaster, Silver, Yorkshire sheep wool, Whitby Jet, found dolly pegs, rope, cotton thread and china cup parts, all the ingredients for a traditional Sunday on the farm.
