Biography:

Fiona Rae is widely known for the striking enamelled pieces she has been creating since 1990. She has made many prestigious pieces including State Gifts for HM The Queen and has held a Royal Warrant to HRH The Prince of Wales since 2001. She is a Trustee of The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust which funds the education of talented craftspeople. Her work has been sold in the finest stores worldwide and today she designs and creates her pieces from her studio/shop in the Stable-yard of historic Hatfield House. Fiona's work reflects her interest in the natural world, the play of iridescence, light, surface detail and colour are an integral part of her work. She explores this using the ancient craft of vitreous enamel combined with rare, precious gemstones. Fiona comments: "I particularly enjoy the bespoke process as I love working closely with my clients to create something which is both personal and unique. I hope that my pieces will be treasured for many years to come”.
