Nadia Sparham

Folk art, nature….and mechanics. Nadia Sparham takes her inspiration from all of these and creates a distinctive style.

She uses drawing, collage and CAD to create beautifully handcrafted cushions and ceramics. Her work as a designer-maker is based on the value of craftsmanship, and she takes a stand against the economic inequities and environmental impact of mass production.
