We will be opening the doors of our home gallery in Herne Hill once again for our Spring Show organised in conjunction with this year’s Dulwich Festival and for the first weekend, London Craft Week. Bringing together a carefully curated selection of contemporary paintings, sculpture, ceramics, textiles and one-off design from some of the UK’s best artists and makers, this will be a show not to be missed.
Following Cavaliero Finn’s successful debut at Crafts Council Collect 2018 at the Saatchi Gallery in February, we are delighted to have new work by leading ceramicist Ashraf Hanna. The V&A Museum acquired two vessels from us at Collect, so he is definitely one to watch and in her article “Future antiques: The most interesting and innovative craft to buy now and treasure later” – Telegraph journalist Emma Love selected Ashraf’s work for her pick of the antiques of the future.
With demand for studio ceramics at an all time high and auction prices soaring, there has never a better time to be collecting ceramics. We are delighted to be showing new ceramic work by our leading ceramicists Akiko Hirai, Matthew Chambers, Ikuko Iwamoto, Daniel Reynolds, Mizuyo Yamashita, Rhian Malin, Rowena Brown, Sophie Cook (first weekend only), Kaori Tatebayashi, Annie Turner, Bjork Haraldsdottir and newcomer Rachel Hoyle. We first spotted work by the Liverpool-born, Stoke based ceramicist, Rachel at New Designers – One Year On at the Business Design Centre in Islington last year. We love how she uses ceramics as her canvas for her free and spirited line drawings (featured above).
The Spring Show will also feature paintings by Angela Charles, Helen Ballardie, Trevor Burgess, Mia Cavaliero, Daisy Cook, Holly Frean, Joseph Goody, Rebecca McLynn, Caroline Popham and Gill Rocca. In a carefully curated hang, we explore the relationships between ceramics and paintings, and examine the dialogue between the two mediums.
Back by popular demand will be work by Michele McKinney who seeks inspiration from the poets in her latest finely woven metal sculptural wall works. She explores the tensions in the metal, creating a delicacy and lightness from a heavy source material. Her sculptures have been mistaken for feathers, such is their lightness in appearance.
We will also be featuring new Heiki vessels by Pia Wustenberg. The Heiki is a bulbous hand-shaped glass vessel with an intriguing wood-carved handle across the top just like a bucket to be carried.
Set in our home gallery the Spring Show wouldn’t be complete without bespoke furniture by Goldsmiths graduate Sam Edkins who will be showing his unique and extraordinary chairs and Galvin Brothers with their hand turned Perfectly (Imperfect) oak stools. We will also be featuring textiles by local artist Michelle House. Michelle has just completed a commission of two wall hangings for The British Academy, a wonderful addition to its prestigious collection.
This promises to be a show not to be missed so we very much hope you can make it.
