The majority of his glazes are based on wood ash, harvested from the burning of recycled scrap wood donated by local makers and also the Edinburgh Tool Library. Further supply comes from the oil drum braziers at The Pitt Street Market, Leith.
He creates digital prints from marquetry originals. Marquetry is the craft of applying pieces of veneer to a structure to form decorative patterns, designs or pictures.
Katie works exclusively with natural fibres from ethical sources and uses organic fabrics where possible. Many works embrace upcycling and make use of remnants, off cuts and archival fabrics.
She only uses water based inks in her production, and is consciously introducing natural dyes while educating herself on the most environmentally positive way to continue creating textile work.
All of Katie’s products and commissions are hand dyed, hand printed and hand stitched in her Edinburgh Studio. If product manufacture does need to be outsourced, then it is always kept local.
Katie has spent the start of 2021 setting up a textile print space in Edinburgh Open Workshop alongside fellow printer Laura Richmond, where they will begin offering print and textile craft workshops in the summer.
Sustainability is a priority in Ludo’s practice, through sourcing fair-trade art supplies – especially paper (Khadi and Lokta papers). Compostable plastic sleeves are used for prints as much as possible.
In keeping with our ecological interests, we adopt a ‘scavenger’ ethos, working with found and repurposed materials and aligning ourselves to a zero-waste approach.
This collection of work has responsible sourcing of raw materials as it’s driving force and is made from either 100% recycled silver or 18 carat Fairtrade gold. Fiona is a Fairtrade gold licensee, so can hallmark her work with the recognisable Fairtrade logo. This jewellery is intended for everyday wear, part of your story to mark important moments.
We respect the soil, wildlife and nature supporting other small producers to lead a self-sufficient and sustainable way of life.
Our packaging is compostable / bio-degradable or 100% recyclable.
