“Grow! is the pilot exhibition by Pop Up! Edinburgh, an organisation created to bring art to unique and unexpected places within the city. This show is about recognizing the spirit of Edinburgh during the August festival season, and uniting glass artists with a connection to Edinburgh. The show will consist of innovative work that has jumped off the plinth and into the unique environment of the glass houses at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.”

I was up in Edinburgh last week during the start of the Festival to set up my work for the exhibition. If anyone is going up to the festival the venue and exhibition is well worth a visit. The glass houses are just outside the city in the Botanic Garden and make a beautiful change of pace to the frantic city

‘Lost Pockets’ selected for ‘Craftsense’ at Bilston Craft Gallery

Categories: News - Tags: , , , ,

It’s been a great week for my work as I have been selected for 2 projects I applied for. Firstly, the Grow! Pop Up! Edinburgh exhibition at The Royal Botanic Gardens and secondly ‘Craftsense’ at Bilston Craft Gallery. ‘Lost Pockets’ will be on show for a year from September this year until 2014.

‘Craftsense celebrates the links between local historic manufacturing skill and modern craft practice. The exhibition focuses on five media that are significant in the historic trades of the Black Country: metal, ceramics, leather, glass and enamel. Contemporary loans of craftwork in these materials are featured alongside examples of excellence in regional manufacture from the 18th 19th and 20th centuries, such as Bilston enamels, and locally made steel-cut jewellery. Craftsense is an interactive and multi-sensory exhibition so the majority of the contemporary pieces are on open display, inviting visitors to explore the qualities of the work through touch.’
