Nature inspired boxes, sculpture, jewellery and mills from North Wales

My name is Louise Hibbert and I have been making intricate boxes, handheld sculptures, salt and pepper mills and jewellery out of wood, plastic and metal since 1994. Some of these have been collaborations with Sarah Parker-Eaton, a jeweller based in Bedfordshire England. These have been really fun and helped to develop both of our individual careers. I am also excited to have recently started a range of hand-fabricated jewellery made from gold, silver, copper and resin.

I studied 3D design in wood, metal, ceramics and plastics at Brighton University in England before going on to become a full-time professional maker. After living in the Virginia, USA for 7 years I am now back in Wales again where I continue to create nature inspired pieces that I exhibit in Galleries and shows around the world (and here on Etsy!).

I have a small shed that I built in my garden where I work which has a wonderful view down to the village promemade and the Menai Straights. I still use a 1950 Wadkin Bursgreen lathe that I love, a faithful companion that I bought second hand when I started and who travelled with me to the States and back!

I have been fortunate enough to included in numerous publications and books including New Masters of the Wooden Box by Oscar Fitzgerald and most recently Intersection: Art and Life by Kevin Wallace.

I am constantly seeking new inspiration for my work in books, museums, on the internet and in the wild. I love microscopic creatures, marine life, beetles, bugs, seeds - particularly the weird and wonderful - basically anything that intrigues and delights me with it's form, texture or color! I love trying new things and constantly push myself in terms of designs and techniques.
