25th Anniversary | Thank You
We had a wonderful evening last Thursday for the opening of Veronica Wells exhibition ‘Faces Amongst Spaces’. As you’ll know, Sarah Wiseman is also celebrating 25 years since first opening her doors on 1st May 1998.
We were delighted to see so many friends come to see us and make the opening a very special evening indeed. Thank you so much for coming!
There’s also been lots of messages of support from customers and artists around the UK. Thank you all so much for your wonderful wishes.
Yuta Segawa | New CollectionView Collection
We are delighted to announce we have new Yuta Segawa pieces now on show in the gallery!
Specialising in producing miniature pottery, Yuta Segawa throws each of his tiny pots by hand. He decorates them with one of the five-hundred unique glazes he has developed. In a variety of shapes and styles, many have tiny delicate necks or feet, reduced to almost magical, doll-sized proportions.
They are now available online and in the gallery.
Jane Muir | New CollectionView Collection
We are delighted to announce we have new Jane Muir sculptures now on show at the gallery!
Jane Muir's ceramics are a filled with eccentric humour and made with a sensitive human touch that speaks to the viewer, who at once recognises something, or someone in each one. The gentle colours of her glazes allow the rough texture of the clay to shine through, lending a soft, chalky quality to her work. The sculptures themselves are whimsical and border on absurd or surreal. Birds perch on heads, flowers bloom from shoulders. Other, smaller figures are collected together in boxes, smiling serenely. Her subject matter ranges from large scale figures and animals, to tiny birds. Her work offers an uncomplicated and idiosyncratic view of the world.
Fliff Carr | New CollectionView Collection
We are thrilled to welcome a new range of charming ceramics from Fliff Carr.
Since a young age, designer and ceramicist Fliff Carr has had a fascination with collecting objects and her work is inspired by the idea that artefacts represent remnants of personal histories. Fliff's ceramics are shaped and informed by collected objects as well as details from antique book illustrations and lace.
"My work is mostly thrown and hand-rolled domestic ware. I use white earthenware clay, an opaque vellum or transparent glaze over coloured slips and underglazes. Each piece is unique, whether in form or detail, and I try to allow for spontaneous invention. I enjoy the subtle shades of intricate details of vintage fabrics and the textures of old lace as well as 'found objects' from the banks of the Thames. I apply these sources of inspiration to my work as embossed, stamped or inlaid detail."
