I enjoyed talking with Christine Gray about her process of making these beautiful porcelain bowls:
The cast glass sculptures of Louisa Finch:
More glass sculptures by Samantha Donaldson:
Katie Gilliland's taxidermy inspired jewellery:
The attention to detail in Malin Winberg's work:
The simple yet effective designs of Jane Blease:
The technicalities and consideration applied to the work of Anna Wales:
The scaffold inspired brilliance in the jewellery of Helen Sutherland:
The illustrative delights in the textiles of Teresa Cole:
And the exciting ceramic drawings-cum-sculptures of Nicola Laidstone!
|Nicola has an open studio event at the Shed 2 studios on 30th November - |
I'm definitley going along to have a peek!
My purchases of the day were:
|these three bear embroideries by Natalia Kukiel...I wonder where they will go?|
|and a mug by Carly Dodsley - which I'm enjoying as I blog!|
So all in all, it was another lovely Lustre and a pleasant addition to the work that I saw there last year. I'm keen to make it a annual visit and continue to support the new, local and inspiring makers that it attracts. Maybe I will be there one day? who knows....
