Bousham Gallery is the concept of Clair Boubli and Shyama Ruffell who have known each other since they were 5 years old.
The Gallery name started as a joke, it's a mixture of their own names but they realised they liked it so it stuck.
They use props, furniture and house plants from their homes, to create a unique shopping destination with their own signature aesthetic.
Clair (Bou) creates exquisite contemporary jewellery from myriad materials collected from her world travels. Reconstructing and bringing back to life vintage pieces, she combines these with Brazilian semi-precious stones, Amazonian seeds and hand cast silver and brass to form unique and exceptional pieces.
As well as transforming and up cycling vintage jewellery Clair also collects stunning coloured vintage art glass pieces dated from the 1930’s to 1970’s.
Shyama (Sham) paints nature inspired, bold, vibrant, original artworks. From the shapes of exotic tropical plants to fields of delicate meadow flowers, all of natures patterns and colours are her resource. Using a variety of mixed media, she works from her studio in her eclectic garden.
Large architectural Palm charcoal drawings, cut collaged paper pieces with vintage elements and colourful oil and acrylic paintings. Are all worked on simultaneously.
Sections from paintings are carefully chosen to create her unique beautiful printed textiles and home ware range.
