Tides Fine Art Gallery concentrates on high quality, bespoke original artwork, with paintings by Jo Frost, Derek Scott, Valerie Ganz and many more highly collectable Welsh Artists; stunning bronze studies by Martin Duffy & Angela Farquharson; and locally-made, Japanese-inspired silver and gold jewellery.
Jo Frost has painted full-time for over five years. Inspired by the ocean and its many moods, Jo paints using multimedia, including oils, acrylics and plaster, together with lapis stone powders and silver and gold leaf. Some paintings have a resin coating, the effects of which need to be seen to be truly appreciated. Her work is very well respected, and forms part of many collections, both here in Wales and internationally.

Micki Schloessingk is an experienced potter making wood-fired, salt-glazed tableware. She first discovered her vocation whilst travelling in India. Micki trained at Harrow College of Art and established Bridge Pottery in 1987. Her approach has changed and developed over the years. As well as being committed to continuing to make her salt glazed pots, Micki is also exploring firing without the introduction of salt, relying just on the fly ash from the burning wood, which creates a drier quieter aesthetic .
