Hand and Land

About

Emerging from this time of reflection, the opportunity exists for a collective re-thinking of the value we place upon the objects with which we choose to surround ourselves. Contemporary craft offers a deep engagement with a conscious process and exploration of materials – the desire for harmony and a tangible connection with the world around us. ‘Hand and Land’ unites seven makers, many of whom made pieces for the exhibition during lockdown. The works in ceramic, textile and wood explore how nature and human intervention are inextricably bound to one another through material, shape and form. The act of making serves as both a meditative and therapeutic activity for the maker and in turn, the handmade object embodies the maker’s story and material intelligence. The maker’s respect for their material, coupled with a desire to listen to and care for the land reflects universal values and a timely quest for elemental balance.

Featured Makers: Christabel Balfour, Craig Bamford (SASA works), Adam Buick, Luke Eastop, Nancy Fuller, Alexander de Vol, HoJung Kim, Lola Lely, Nic Webb
