No.35 is the home & studio of designer/maker ali Stringell.
ali works primarily in fine silver; combining silver vessels and forms, with knitted wire, feathers, handmade papers and other unexpected elements to produce contemporary jewellery, silverware, ornaments & sculptures.
Training as a set and costume designer, Slade School, ali has turned her interest in the magic of the theatre, to working with precious metals. She continues to draw costumes and characters with conte pencils, ink and sometimes a little coffee, on paper!
ali works and exhibits from her studio in Ditchling. She also showcases her work regularly in London with ‘Handmade in Britain’ & Contemporary Applied Arts, London.
With the South Downs as her backcloth, Meryl’s landscapes reflect her love of pattern, colour and light. She embraces the monotones of winter as well as the warmer hues of summer. In her still life paintings, she plays with image and design, whilst composing on the canvas. Meryl exhibits regularly with the Francis Iles Gallery, Rochester. Kent.
