Handmade in Britain 12: 16-18 November 2012

This show at Chelsea Old Town Hall in the Kings Road, Chelsea, London exceeded my expectations. There was much first class and innovative design and art (call it craft if you must!) in evidence and although my primary interest was in enjoying the ceramics, I was also drawn to some superb jewellery (see Gun Thor for example – www.gunthor.com) or Sarah Herriot Design (www.sarahherriot.com). It is invidious to pick out a few examples of great work for there was much more that i could equally have identified!

Turning now to ceramics there was little that i did NOT like. I was glad to see Kirsty Adams making a return after a few years away looking after her young children (she has promised me some new images of her current work), to see the emerging talent of Alex McCarthy, enjoy Alex Allpress’s new work, to meet  Norman Yap and appreciate his excellent work – see how Richard Heeleys work is progressing and examine Sotis Filippides very tempting wall pieces. I enjoyed Stephanie Wrights thrown, but altered sculpture and found a large piece of Ingrid Saag’s work ‘Swing’ something i could really live with. It was full of life and movement and just ‘danced’ for me! I will be surprised if it has not been sold by the time I am writing this short note. A couple of pictures are shown below:

 

Also new work from a new ceramic artist Brittany Delany:

So, may i suggest that, if in London or within reach of London this weekend, you try and get to this show. I liked it a lot and hope that you might as well!
