Between the bare slopes of Exmoor and the wild atlantic ocean North Devon is home to a surprisingly diverse and gifted number of designers,  artists and crafters whose work is as complex and beautiful as anywhere in the world.   Perhaps inspired by pure sand and clean surf or green hills and blue skies,  contemporary design can be seen in all their work.  Take for example Clive Bowen whose wonderful wood fired pots take on the subtle hues and colours of autumn in North Devon.  Or the exquisite instruments lovingly hand made and caressed into life at Lindsay Wilson guitars.  Luke Carless produces uniquely different modern lino cuts and photographs which depict aspects of life and nature rarely seen by others.
