I am delighted to be exhibiting as part of the collective FIVE during London Craft Week 2023. The event, FIVE@67Gallery, runs from the 10th to 14th May 2023 at the beautiful 67 York Street gallery in Marylebone, London.
“This exhibition brings five emerging artists together for the first time to show their beautifully crafted jewellery, ceramics, sculpture and metalwork. United by their fascination with material, they also share a curiosity for using traditional skills in innovative ways. Be it through experimentation with metal fusion, combining ceramics with found materials, using gesture to create rhythm and mark making to express the passage of time or putting a modern spin on traditional codes, they each bring a unique approach to the art of contemporary craft.”
Introducing FIVE, the artists
Luciana Böhm’s work revolves around research and experimentation with metal fusion and forging.
Caroline Egleston’s new tile scapes explore the gesture of shape and how repeat rhythm and brushwork bring energy. A playful and joyful conversation between colour, form and texture.
Sophie Martin-Glinel makes high-quality distinctive pieces of jewellery which mix the traditional with modern bold and clean lines.
Sarah Villeneau creates tactile abstract sculptural ceramics which evoke ideas of the body, the landscape and organic form.
Liz Workman makes sculptural ceramic vessels by hand using coils of porcelain and a few simple tools. Her pieces are of maternal figures that are grounded, solid, and immovable.
Come and visit, it is a fabulous event for everyone who loves arts, contemporary design, beautiful craftsmanship, or just want to discover something new and different. You are in for a treat. No need to pre-book. All the information are on the flyer. However if you have any questions, please feel free to email me Sophie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope to see you there. Let’s celebrate London Craft Week 2023!
