Exclusive to Clifton Ceramics & Fine Jewellery

'Balloon Fiesta' designed by Emma Bossons FRSA

Designed and built in 1836 by a young engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, this 702-foot-long, 250-foot-high Clifton Suspension Bridge gracefully spans the Avon Gorge between Clifton and Leigh Woods. Fantastically, as the summer draws to a sleepy close, the bridge is quite literally engulfed in a myriad of colours as hot air balloons rise above the Bridge in the Balloon Fiesta.

For 2023. one of Bristol’s most iconic sights since the 19th century has now been captured by Emma in her own Balloon Fiesta with balloons captured ascending at differing heights from Ashton court. Curves and the vibrant colours from the setting sun combine with the a vast array of patchwork canopies, the deep blues of the River Avon, rolling hills and even Brunel’s suspension bridge, taking 33 years to complete, holds arches and line work that mimics those on the balloons themselves. Hanging in their dangling straw baskets, silhouettes of passengers mark them out as only witnesses to this colourful extravaganza. Joyfully, the Mexican word Fiesta is captured on this jubilant, peaceful and uplifting celebration of Bristol in the Applied Arts.

Steve Smith Ceramics

Steve is a ceramics artist with more than 40 years experience in the fine art of freehand painted china. His exceptional talent and Meticulous attention to detail have earned him an international reputation.

Eric Knowles, the international ceramics expert 'who knows quality when he see’s it' believes this is some of the finest china available today.

Having worked for Royal Worcester and more recently Moorcroft & Kingsley (now Elliot Hall) Enamels, Steve has returned to his first love of painting china whilst using essentially the same materials and techniques. He feels that china is more vibrant, a better surface to paint on, and has a more stable finish.

He has now embarked on his career producing small limited editions of miniature china vases and boxes for sale through selected retailers who are eager to take his pieces knowing the guaranteed quality on offer.
