Elements: The Beauty of Imperfection,

Venue:
2 - 24 September 2017 :: Bamford, Daylesford / Knightsbridge, UK
The show brings together a group of highly skilled International craft artists and innovative designers who respond to elements of nature, through process, material and philosophy. This exhibition is particularly interesting because it demonstrates how traditional processes of hand-crafting with organic materials such as clay, wood and natural fibres are very much relevant in design and art today.

Willow Weavers

Venues:
9 Sep to 3rd Oct 2015   ::   The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh.

Basketry is an ancient and elemental craft reminding us of a simpler life; a yearning for something going back to our basic roots. It is also a universal craft; basketry gives both urban and heritage spaces an essential human dimension. Willow Weaving is by no means a survey exhibition, it is instead a glimpse into a genre which has been in decline as a world craft due to increasing industrialisation but in recent years has enjoyed a renaissance as an art form in its own right. Each artist and craftsman included in this exhibition contributes to this renaissance.

The exhibition includes work from:   Lise Bech, Dail Behennah, Lizzie Farey, Rosie Farey, Joe Hogan, Owen Jones, Stefan Meiners

Just as the best poetry can create moments of epiphany in the reader, so too can the finest objects stir in the observer feelings of pure emotion and understanding. This show seeks to trace the connections between both art forms, through an exploration of work by Sonja Landweer, Seamus Heaney, Angela O Kelly, Gerard Smith, Frances Lambe, Derek Mahon, Joe Hogan, Anne Michaels, Vona Groarke and Colin O Dubhghaill.”
