FUNCTIONAL BEAUTY EXHIBITION, MAY 2017

 

We're going to be exhibiting with other fantastic designer-makers as part of the Brighton Artists Open House which runs throughout May.

The theme of the exhibition is functional beauty, which stems from our belief in valuing handmade items, not just for their practical use but also for their beauty and their unique details. 

 

I will be showing a range of pieces of furniture and am very excited to be showing alongside some other extremely talented makers from other craft disciplines, each of whose work perfectly illustrates functional beauty. These include:

*Emily Mackey textile designer and weaver, who specialises in using native breed British wools and traditional embroidery techniques.

Chris Keenan Potter working with Limoges porcelain & a restrained palette of glazes

* Frances Murray Artist specialising in large scale abstract monoprints.

The exhibition will be part of the Art in Ditchling festival, which happens at the same time as Brighton Open House and during this time East Sussex is a hive of activity and appreciation for the designer-makers based here. 

Functional Beauty will be located in the historic Jointure Studios (www.jointurestudios.co.uk) a stunning bright and spacious gallery in the heart of Ditchling village, East Sussex.
