Irresistible hand crafted lighting and illuminated artworks make a wonderful festive statement this season. We explore all facets of lighting where sculpture, colour and form meet.
Our intimate Balcony Gallery will be full to the rafters with beautiful pieces which can easily fit into home environments. We are careful to note the power of light as a medium in its own right, where light and shade create shadows and the colour and textures of shadow shifting with each piece create physically powerful works that take on the appearance of sculptural forms in space. Visitors are encouraged to move freely around the space to take the lighting pieces in from all angles.
Presenting pieces by: Clio Anastasiou, Nichola Bendall, Dobby and Rose, Liv Cornall, Adele Goulty, Denis di Luca, Lun Lighting, Hannah Nunn, Liz Scrine, Surrey Woodsmiths and Meryl Till.

Adele has lived and worked in the South of France for the last eighteen years, but has recently returned to live back in Surrey where her career in ceramics began over thirty years ago.
The area in France where she lived was a rich source of inspiration, found objects such as pebbles, driftwood, rock formations and the sea informed some of her surface decoration, texture and form.
The bottle forms developed whilst designing 3D still life groups, placing two or more bottles together and adding a found object such as a pebble.
The surface of the paper clay and burnished bottles are achieved by saggar firing using copper and iron sulphates. Adele has been experimenting for several years using the sulphates in different types and temperatures of firings.
