Brilliant Adventures

Specialising in optical illusions using mirrors that create infinity & 3D effects

The Infinity Candle is an example of ingenious design by inventor Nick Moore. Like most of his inventions it creates an amazing optical illusion of 3D effects. The Infinity candle can be enjoyed as an interior decoration, and is also a meditative tool that induces feelings of peace and harmony, by sitting quietly watching the flames. The Infinity Candle is a simplified development of the infinity theme that Nick Moore has researched for many years. He is very pleased to present and share his experience, and simplicity of designs that offer peace and tranquility with style. Our specialty is in the area of dramatic visual illusions and animated effects, which can be produced easily from readily available technology.

Maureen

Stunning, unique handmade beadwork & fascinators designed by Maureen Honour

I am Maureen, I am retired and disabled. I have always been artistic, but have spent my life in hotel, catering, and retail. To keep myself sane since the wheelchair came along I have been crafting. I started making cards, then decoupage pictures. I then discovered beading. I make intricate beaded necklaces and earrings and also novelty beaded Christmas puddings and Santas as earrings, also larger ones as danglies for the Christmas tree. Other things I like making are leather flowers and fascinators.

Maureen will take bespoke commissions

SMT Artist – Sophie Mills-Thomas Art

Sophie is a contemporary animal artist. She will be exhibiting original paintings, limited fine art prints & homeware

Sophie is an emerging contemporary artist, based in Bristol. Her signature is expressive animal portraiture- vivid explosive colour with prominent brushstrokes to denote texture but more importantly the movement. The idea is that you are being gifted a moment to see this wild creature, a special moment and at any moment it could run and be lost, gone. Currently exploring focus in her pieces, fine detail merged with mark making using a variety of media. Semi fractured and tricking the eye into focusing on and out she is playing with depth and perspective.

From Sophie: “To be able to go full time as an artist has been and probably will be the thing I am proudest of. It is both terrifying and exhilarating. I will not forget waking up at 5 a.m going to the studio, arriving at the office stinking of turps and oil paint, charging back at lunch to carry on painting and then back again after the office, creating in neon strip lighting ’til dark. It was during this time with sore eyes, that the shift between enjoying art and it becoming my life occurred. I am truly grateful to pursue it as my career.”
