Stephen Gillies and Kate Jones make contemporary glass in their studio in Rosedale Abbey, where they are inspired by the elemental beauty of their rural surroundings – the North York Moors.

While they had been active online for many years, they needed a new website to reflect their status as world class artists (they have pieces in prestigious public collections, including the V&A). They also needed an online space where they can promote their one-off, complex, art pieces, as well as allow people to buy their studio bowls online.

London design agency, StudioSmall, created their new identity and print materials, and they provided designs of the new website. I built a custom theme to match the designs, and developed the site in WordPress, using Woocommerce for the online shop.

The website allows the clients to manage every aspect of the site themselves. This includes their portfolio, exhibition and public collections listings, publications, blog posts, as well as the studio and limited edition pieces they sell online.
