Saltwater Studio Pembroke is a beautiful shop created by two designer-makers with a passion for their coastal environment here in beautiful Pembrokeshire. Having met through a local craft fayre, they took the opportunity to open a small but perfectly formed shop within the heart of Pembroke. They make everything sold in their shop with a few specially chosen makers from around our beautiful county.
Saltwater Studio Pembroke is a working studio where visitors can find them designing and creating their much-loved products.
Customers can come and learn how the design process works from start to finish on their carefully chosen item - before taking it to its forever home!
Saltwater Studio Pembroke also offers unique commission designs for a more personal touch and heartfelt gift. You can contact us and discuss your thoughts, and we can give you a no-obligation quote. We like a challenge and welcome any new ideas. It also spirals onto other creations for our perfectly formed little shop!
If you would like to get in touch with anything you have seen on their 'New Creations' or Facebook, Instagram account. Saltwater Studio Pembroke can be contacted by email email@example.com
AMANDA GRIFFITHS the Graphic Designer
Amanda graduated with a Degree in Graphics and Packaging from Swindon University and worked within the print and design industry for 16 years but always had the love for her creativity side for gifts and homeware.
While graphic design and print work continues, Amanda started developing a coastal range of artwork and driftwood pieces. Customers can see the ever-changing range within the shop. She has also moved onto a range of ceramic items, all influenced by the Pembrokeshire Coastline.
TINA SMITH the Glass Artist
Although she studied Art and Design at BCUC, it wasn't until 2009 that Tina discovered hot glass, after which her fate was sealed. Initially self-taught, she has since been lucky enough to take classes with some of the world's leading lampwork bead artists.
Tina loves the fact that glass can be manipulated in the flame to create new shapes and colour combinations, although the unpredictable nature of different metals contained within the glass can sometimes lead to strange or unexpected outcomes. Each bead is made by hand in the flame, then carefully kiln-annealed to ensure durability.
More recently, Tina has expanded her glass portfolio to include small kiln-formed pieces, something she hopes to develop over the coming months. She is a member of the Contemporary Glass Society.
