Showcase

We are very excited to announce our first ever Winter Craft Show, opening 15th November 2019.

Taking craft out of the market stall setting, all objects will be exhibited in thoughtful still-lifes, mixing materials and processes, allowing visitors to imagine how the objects will sit in their home.

House of Quinn is a design studio and online concept store based in Sussex. House of Quinn was created by Julius Arthur to propose a simple edit of handmade objects for living spaces. Taking inspiration from Julius’ Cornish heritage and traditional craft techniques, he design objects that reflect of our daily rituals, things we find comfort in and items that become part of personal collections and narratives. House of Quinn is synonymous with hand made quilts. Working with renewed and consciously sourced textiles, each quilt is handmade using traditional techniques to create contemporary objects with a sense of place and function.

Bob Watson is a Woodturner and Furniture Maker. Bob’s Bowls based in Deptford, South London. Woodturning is a major part of his life with countless hours invested in learning how wood behaves and how it can be cut and formed in to beautiful shapes. Almost all the wood is sourced logs, often saved from the firewood pile around the local area. The process is one that takes patience and time as it takes about a year an inch for the logs to dry. Most of Bob’s time on the lathe is taken up with hollow form turning. They are the hardest to make both technical and physically he says but have the greatest scope to be pushed in new directions in the various forms.

India is a maker based in South East London. Her work involves an application of questionable surface design onto three-dimensional shapes in a state of playful, multi-disciplinary experimentation. Using drawing as a tool to inspire her pieces, her work unfolds and escalates as colour, pattern and texture meet material- and process-focused forms. India’s work often behaves as a collection of pieces that complement and interact with one another in a lively collision of shape, colour and texture. It becomes almost interactional as her ensembles aim to intrigue the viewer, creating questions regarding the properties and qualities of the pieces. What is that? Can I touch it?

Helena lacy is a London based Sculptor and Ceramicist. Helena creates abstract sculptures from clay usually based on the female body as a form. She likes to take separate aspects of the body that are traditionally feminine such as the curves of breasts and hips - these parts are then put back together, creating an abstracted expression of the female body. This is the theme behind a lot of her work, being re-inventive with a single form. Helena’s vases play with heights and levels, to create unique practical sculptures that are for displaying both succulents and cut flowers together. She draws inspiration for these vases from the Japanese art of flower arrangement, Ikebana.

Lydia is a Glasgow-based artist and designer recently graduated from studying a BA Hons in Painting and Printmaking at the Glasgow School of Art. Lydia specialises in textiles, working on projects that toe the lines between art and design using crochet, fabric printing, sewing, and quilting alongside photography and sculpture to create her varied art practice. Her ideas revolve largely around explorations of colour, form, narrative, and wearable art through looking at Scottish mythology, spirituality, her experiences as an immigrant and a woman, and the human ability to create ‘home’ in unexpected or adverse circumstances.

Lily Pearmain is a Peckham based ceramic artist, driven by experimenting with new processes and approaches to clay as a material, while keeping work clean using minimal glazing and simple forms.

She enjoys the satisfaction and fluidity found in production making, as well as the opportunity to experiment with one off pieces using the techniques honed in production making. She predominantly uses the potters wheel, even for sculptural pieces, with minimal glazing.

Chelsea is a Hackney based artist and maker. Her work focuses on an appreciation for the shape colour and texture of everyday objects, exploring the boundaries of function and non-function. Since returning to study design in 2016, she has developed a practice that combines her making skills with her love of drawing.
