Vibrant Cornish Art & Homewares for the New Season

As the clocks spring forward and we welcome the longer, brighter days of spring, it feels like the perfect time to refresh our homes with the same life and colour that we’re seeing outside in nature.

Whether you’re looking to add a splash of colour to your walls or you’d like to bring the atmosphere of the coast or countryside into your home, our selection of Cornish art and homewares will bring the beauty of the season indoors.

A touch of nature

One of the joys of spring is watching nature come alive after its winter slumber, and that includes our British birdlife which goes into a flurry of activity in springtime – nesting, singing, and feeding the young!

The Fledgling Blue Tit Cotton Cushion, by talented Animal artist, Tess Dawson, brings a wonderful sense of spring and combines fine art with soft furnishings – what could be better? Be sure to check out Tess Dawson’s full range of paintings and drawings, as well as her stunning pet portrait commissions.

Immersive art

From rugged cliffs to sandy beaches, the coastline is a constant source of inspiration for Cornish artists. And for those dreaming of escaping to the coast, paintings such as Godrevy Dreams, by Fiona Cant, offer a window to the sea.

Painted intuitively, this semi-abstract landscape reflects the sweeping sands and turquoise waters of Godrevy Beach and transports us to the striking Cornish coast.

Fiona offers complimentary video viewings of any painting that you are interested in, and framing options are also available for the perfect finish.

Spring-like bathroom accessories

Add a touch of spring to your bathroom with a Dandelion Clock or Bee Round Soap Dish by Alchemy Tiles. These bespoke pieces are hand-carved by artist Mel Chambers, who has perfected the thousand-year-old craft of inlay tiles.

Reminding us of the Cornish countryside, the spring-inspired motifs on these dishes certainly take us to a happy place!

If you’re looking for an attention-grabbing statement piece, we have just the thing! 

You can commission David Perry Glass & Ceramics to create a bespoke Fused Glass Placemat in your two favourite colours. Made to order, these striking chequered placemats work beautifully as a serving platter or a display piece with accessories such as candles on them. Which colour combination would you choose?

In full bloom

From delicate blossoms to vibrant blooms, springtime transforms our gardens into a kaleidoscope of colour, and Cornish artist, Louise Daykin has certainly captured this in her floral-themed prints.

Check out Louise’s lovely Daisies, Big & Small Tea Towel Set which has been designed and screen printed in Cornwall on quality organic cotton. Machine washable up to 40°C and with a handy hanging loop, this is a pair of tea towels that are as practical as they are pretty!

Swim into spring

The perfect gift for wild swimmers, Poppy Treffry’s Bathers A3 Print brings all the spring feels! Featuring 3 happy swimmers, this print of the stitched fabric original fills us with joy and makes us want to don our swimmers and dive into the refreshing Cornish sea!

Available unframed or with a white or natural wood frame, you can choose the best match for your home’s décor.

Shimmering shores

Introduce colour and interest to your living space with Claire Harris’ Cornish Sea Scene Hanger. This handmade, fused glass piece can be hung from a window to let light pass through, or against a plain wall as an attractive piece of artwork.

Made from iridised glass which creates a glittery effect, and layers of crushed and powdered glass for texture, light catches this piece of Cornish artwork in much the same way as the sea. A sure-fire conversation starter!

Cornish dreams

Post-impressionistic Cornish artist, Martin Raskovsky creates pieces that draw you into another world, while still providing a hint of realism.

Limited edition, digitally manipulated photograph, Weaved Woods II depicts a colourful and dreamlike woodland scene that takes us to a place where reality and imagination combine. Raskovsky not only captures nature’s beauty but also delivers a strong sense of spring in this unique piece.
