Our In the Window displays throughout 2024 will include a changing selection of pieces ‘in conversation’ by makers working across ceramics, glass, wood, textiles and jewellery.
To tie in with the opening of our new display, EveryDay, our window on College Lane features a selection of everyday functional pieces which are a joy to use in the home. Including textiles by Neil Bottle, ceramic tableware by Eva Radulova and Michael Taylor, kitchenware by David Mellor Design, and glass vessels by emerging maker Jahday Ford.
Makers featured in our Valentine’s Day window included jewellery by Rosina Beech, Jessica Briggs, Rentaro Nishimura, Misun Won & Annabet Wyndham; textiles by Neil Bottle & Mr.PS; glass by Mark Fenn; floral paper sculptures by Kate Kelly; ceramic mosaics by Cleo Mussi; and cards by Karen Edwards & Christine Toh.
“During my time creating my work, the dragon has become a huge part of my practice. Sculpting this mythical creature feels like it has become second nature to me but each time I get the same joy and excitement upon completion. Each dragon I sculpt always develops its own personality and its own individual movement, the possibilites in which you can place, move and bend one into its final position are limitless and I think that this is what keeps me making more.” – Jacob Chan
“The extremely potent yet mythical character of the Chinese Dragon this year in 2024 allows the opportunity for clarity of vision; it allows transformation through heart health both physically and emotionally.
The collection In the Window is the keenest distilling of the dragon symbol, showing a tenacity and strength of line and movement, with a sprinkling of gold.” – Anthony Wong
