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.
Liz Scrine produces hand-built ceramic pieces, ranging from large coil pots to architectural light boxes to flat pieces that go on the wall. Characterised by richly coloured slips and glazes and a love of ancient architecture, the work conveys a sense of discovery of having been unearthed after being buried for centuries.
Liz spends most of her time working on commissions, but when she has nothing else on she works on her own ideas. An ongoing interest in glaze testing and experimenting with different techniques has resulted in hundreds of little samples of different colours and textures. These are her resource library, and worth taking a look at if you are thinking of commissioning something.
