Handmade gifts and objects for the festive season
16.11.17 – 23.12.17
As the days are getting shorter and festive lights begin to illuminate wintertime, Contemporary Applied Arts, home to works from Britain’s leading craftspeople, launch their annual seasonal selling exhibition. Present & Collect offers a curated selection of meaningful gifts at accessible price points, as well as high-value collectors’ pieces – all imbued with skill,
innovation and tradition.
We are proud winners of the Gallery TEN prize for The Scottish Glass Society’s annual exhibition.
The new glass panel titled “Ebb & Flow” is a well-conceived and designed work of the highest quality; it is both elegant and sophisticated. The combination of blown glass and kiln techniques is a highly skilled approach to a seemingly simple object. The narrative of the Scottish and Scandinavian landscape is put across beautifully.
The prize of a gallery show during 2018 will be a fitting culmination of Lindean Mill reaching their 40th year as glass makers based in Scotland and their continuing commitment to producing work to the highest possible standards.
14 September – 1 October 2017
This year’s Scottish Glass Society Exhibition ‘HERITAGE’, will be showing at the new Gallery Ten space, in Edinburgh.

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.
We are looking forward to taking part in this exciting exhibition, showing our tableware in a domestic setting with other makers.
