InProcess Exhibition at De Koffie Pot Gallery

I am going to show my jewellery work as a part of the four artist exhibition 'InProcess' from 3rd to 17th June 2017. All four artists received the DKP Gallery Awards sponsored by De Koffie Pot during the craft fair Hereford Contemporary 2016.  

A collective exhibition - 'InProcess' 
Four winners of the De Koffie Pot Award from Hereford Contemporary Craft Fair will present sculptural objects, contemporary jewellery, furniture and embroidered adornments.

Emma Mantle is a contemporary artist making sculptural objects and jewellery that slaps you round the face (in a good way).

Ella Sparling is a designer, maker, aesthetic creator - working in a mixture of materials to create contemporary items, with clean lines and a pop of colour.

Harriet Stiles uses traditional hand embroidery methods to create her flamboyant adornments and accessories.

Mizuki Takahashi uses enamel, paper-thin porcelain and traditional jewellery techniques to create contemporary jewellery to sit like a drawing on the body.

Private View - Saturday 3rd June / 17:30 - 19:30
Open daily 4th - 17th June / 9:00 - 18:00

Modern Japanese Design at Manchester Art Gallery

One exhibition I have been displaying my collection in at Manchester Art Gallery has now extended its display period until 23rd April 2017. You can find my work also in their gallery shop and I've recently sent more new pieces for the shop.

 - Modern Japanese Design -

The exhibition, located in the refurbished 19th century former Athenaeum theatre space, includes works from thirty two designers with over one hundred pieces on display. It shows how respect for nature and natural forces and the innovative use of materials and revolutionary techniques have influenced Japanese design. The display also reveals the importance of philosophical and spiritual ideas derived from Buddhism that have influenced the aesthetic and conceptual direction of Japanese design through the approaches of minimalism, deconstruction, and wabi sabi.
