These two talented women have created a beautiful exhibition in homage to Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party. Theirs, The After Party, is an installation for 13 ‘invited guests’, each with their own table setting as sculptural objects made of glass.

The women ‘invited’ by the artists have been their role models and inspirational figures and I am honoured to have a place at the table.

Thank you Evelina and Kristin!

The exhibition is on until 19 August 2017.

MAKE a celebration of craft

18 February – 23 April 2017

Look out for the Gem Collection at Ruthin Craft Centre’s exhibition MAKE.

A celebration of the work of some fifty applied artists, marking a return of several of your favourite makers along with some new faces. For the past two years Ruthin Craft Centre’s Paul Hamlyn Foundation funded What is Craft? project has looked at many different aspects of Craft and the core fundamental process of making. Examining different ideas and approaches to making, in particular through form, function, materials, and decoration, it has engaged our audience in a creative dialogue. This exhibition articulates aspects of that dialogue and continues the ongoing conversation of what it is to Make.
