We are back from a short summer break and, for the first time since lockdown, we are exhibiting again and the good news is that there’s still time to see the show. We will be at the Design Centre all of next week until Friday 25th September exhibiting the work of eight ceramicists at Focus/20, one of the key exhibitions for interior design fans, organised as part of the London Design Festival.  Focus/20 takes place in the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour and Cavaliero Finn is one of just two galleries invited as House Guests to exhibit a selection of ceramic work for this event (the other being the excellent Ting Ying gallery.)

After a seven month break from exhibiting due to COVID19 we are really excited to be able to meet customers face to face once more. We will, of course, be wearing masks and keeping socially distant but please know that behind our masks will be huge smiles as we do what we do best and share our artists’ work with you.  We very much hope to see some of you at the show.
