Emily PowellMerry & Bright
We’re delighted to be introducing works by the acclaimed artist Emily Powell in our annual festive exhibition 'Merry & Bright'. Emily’s joyful works are an exuberant, explosive expression of freedom and colour. She explores several subjects, from the beautiful Devon coastline where she lives and works, to pattern, animals or surreal still life.
Her imagination is endless, her curiosity infectious, freely exploring paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures, digital art, stop motion animations and more. The lively diversity behind Emily’s work is rightfully admired. Her fluorescent colour palette & fearless technique showcases liberty in the way she creates and exhibits. No surface, medium or space is impractical to her. By removing traditional boundaries in her work, Emily is proving herself to be a breath of fresh air to the art world.
‘I’m all about colour, letting go & having fun. I don’t believe art has to be super serious.’

Rhian Malin | Ceramics
Just arrived in the gallery and added to the website a beautiful new collection of blue and white ceramics by Rhian Malin.
Inspired by her Grandmother’s Willow Pattern collection, Rhian Malin continues the long historic tradition of hand-painting porcelain with cobalt-blue decoration. Her elegant wheel-thrown porcelain vessels are the chosen surface, created to stretch this tradition into the 21st Century.
Taking a mathematical approach to applying each geometric design, each vessel is painstakingly divided up and mapped out by eye to highlight their tapering forms, resulting in a contemporary take on the much loved, and often nostalgic, combination of blue and white.
Having previously won support from the Crafts Council UK through their prestigious Hothouse Programme in 2016, she has since gone on to be awarded: Highly Commended Newcomer Award at Ceramic Art London (2018), 'Best Ceramics' at the Contemporary Craft Festival (2017), 'Best New Business' at The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Festival (2017) & Winner of Bils & Rye Emerging Potters Exhibition (2016).
Rhian Graduated from Camberwell College of Art in 2014 with a degree in BA (Hons) Three Dimensional Design.
