Craft Into Industry

If you are in London over the next few weeks I’d recommend having a look at the ‘Craft into Industry’ exhibition at Contemporary Applied Arts (http://www.caa.org.uk/).

From the website: –

“The exhibition examines the possible relationship between British Studio practice and the ceramics industry. CAA has worked with homeware design consultant Sue Pryke  and curator Brian Kennedy on the curation of this exhibition. Sue and Brian were keen to not only look at ceramicists for this exhibition but to explore and present makers from a wide range of disciplines as they strongly feel that there are many partnership possibilities between studio practitioners and the  British ceramics industry.”

I was particularly interested in the bone china tableware by Sue Pryke – clean, simple forms, restrained palette, beautifully detailed. (http://suepryke.com/).

Also the printed and press moulded bowls and tableware of Vicky Shaw (http://www.vickyshaw.co.uk/).  The simplicity of form accentuating a sophisitcated use of colour, pattern and composition to great effect. Definitely worth a visit!
