Making a Winter's Tale at Contemporary Applied Arts

Making a Winter’s Tale

Handmade gifts for the festive season

17 November - 24 December 2016

This year I have a selection of work on show at Contemporary Applied Arts winter show. Kilnformed glass platters and small to large glass vessels will be available up to Christmas eve in the Southwark gallery. These large vessels have come from two residencies I undertook in Caithness and have all been created with fine glass powders in layers.

"This November, Contemporary Applied Arts (CAA), home to works from Britain’s leading craftspeople, will launch Making a Winter’s Tale, a seasonal selling exhibition. It will offer a range of meaningful gifts at accessible price points, as well as high-value collectors’ pieces. This curated selection is imbued with skill, innovation and tradition.

From the decorative to the functional and wearable, in a range of diverse materials from clay to precious gemstones, each handmade object is a one off. 

As the leading authority on high-end British craft, CAA is a trusted resource for collectors and first time buyers alike. With 350 maker members from all over the UK, the CAA gallery represents both leading and emerging names."
