In February 2018 we exhibited the work of six artists/makers from our portfolio at Collect for the first time. Collect is organised by The Crafts Council and is The International Art Fair for Contemporary Objects, featuring exquisite, cutting-edge contemporary objects in ceramic, glass, jewellery, wood, metal and textiles from established and emerging artists and makers. We were thrilled to have been invited to exhibit there.
During the fair a panel of curators from the V&A visited our stand and decided to add two of Ashraf Hanna’s beautiful Undulating Vessels to their permanent collection; it was a great achievement for both Ashraf and Cavaliero Finn and a great start to Collect for us.
We loved meeting visitors at the fair who seemed as passionate about our artists’ work and craft in general as we are; it made being at Collect a thoroughly enjoyable experience for us from start to finish.
