Bits and bobs
Just a quick post today to let you know what some of our lovely members have been up to.
Alternatively if it’s raining, you can’t be bothered to leave the house, or you live somewhere inconvenient like Switzerland, you can buy her beautiful plates, glasses and homeware from the Hidden Art e-shop.
- Sarah Drew has also opened a new shop, in St Austell in Cornwall, which not only sells her jewellery but also doubles (triples?) up as a craft centre and cafe. She’ll be running regular workshops, and you can book a consultation if you want a special piece of bespoke jewellery or a headdress. Have a look at her website for a map and more information.
- Margo Selby has collaborated with textile artist Alison Willoughby for an intriguing new exhibition called ‘The Inexhaustible Object vs. International Lonely Girl’. It’s an installation at the Margo Selby showroom that displays some of Alison’s amazing skirts – they’re wearable works of art. See Alison’s bright red website here (sunglasses may be required), or find out more details on Margo’s website. The exhibition runs until Aug 26th at the showroom in Holborn.
- Liz Emtage has been awarded 4th place in the Ceramics category in the Craft & Design Selected Award 2011. Liz makes beautifully delicate porcelain lighting, which lets light shine through the naturally translucent material, making the most of the colours and textures. The pieces have a lovely sculptural quality when they aren’t lit so they look good day and night.
There were well over 1,000 applicants for the award so it’s an amazing achievement to place so high. Liz sells her work online and she accepts commissions so you can personalise a piece to suit your home, or as a gift.
- We’ve also said a sad goodbye to our intern Rosalind Gregoire (although you can keep up with what she’s doing on twitter @rozgregoire), and a cheery hello to our newest intern recruit, Lisa Toft, who’s fresh out of art school.
