'Tin City' is the recycled creative brainchild of Bath maker Jo Nye. Her handmade tin shrines, diorama, wall decor items & jewellery pieces are inspired by Jo's love of folk art, interior design, architecture, religious icons and reliquaries and both classical & modern art. These influences are all too apparent throughout her handmade pieces - some more straightforward in approach whilst others have a playful nod to  kitsch & underground cultures.

Each piece is unique and uses recycled tin and aluminium cans, carefully resourced hand-prepared shrink plastic imagery or metals, upcycled broken vintage & modern costume jewellery, found objects and recycled packaging to bring one-off pieces to life! The works of TinCity are full of colour and joy, some say brash, others say “fabulous, darling”!

Jo’s works have featured in national interiors magazine Reclaim, at retail outlets Lola Swift in Bath, and The Stanley Road Store in Brighton as well as a regular presence in various arts trails and gallery 44AD in Bath.
