Hi, I'm Natalie Yates and I own and run NATIVAS, a family business based in Derbyshire. I am committed to producing high quality goods at low prices. Almost all of my products are hand crafted by me and I take great pride in offering a customer service that is second to none.
One of my favourite objects to work with. I am always on the lookout for old or odd shaped bottles to turn into oil or vinegar pourers or to illuminate from within using battery operated LED lights.
As a natural product, slate is another material that I enjoy working with. No two pieces are ever the same thus no two designs that I produce are ever the same also.
The warmth and feel of wood, another product of nature, makes it a very satisfying material to use when making a large assortment of pieces; from boxes to trays and plaques.
To make my decoupaged products I begin by painting on several coats of slip and once that dries I then apply glue to fix my chosen images, these can be my own images or my customer’s images. I then glaze over my design making them water resistant and able to be used in practical ways in the home.
If you have a particular piece that you would like created, perhaps for a special occasion or for that special someone, please do contact me and talk through what it is that you have in mind. In most instances I am able to produce a bespoke piece to your requirements.
