We are pleased to say that the Zaha Hadid and Gareth Neal vessels are already a huge success! designboom has featured them in its March edition in the ‘design’ section, see link below. These wooden vessels are part of a project presented by the American hardwood export council and Benchmark Furniture, originally exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum as part of ‘The Wish List’ during the London Design Festival 2014. Hidden within the fluid, futuristic computer modelled trails of these vessels, are traditionally hand thrown pots, juxtaposing craftsmanship and new technologies in woodwork.

They will be exclusively represented by Sarah Myerscough Gallery at COLLECT 2015 in May hosted at the Saatchi Gallery, London.

Sarah Myerscough and David Gates took part in the jury panel for the Penland Fellowship 2015, hosted at the Crafts Council in December 2014. The Penland Fellowship 2015 is open to UK based artists/makers working in wood; it offers a two-week course of study at Penland School of Craft in North Carolina, USA. The award, the first of its kind in a series of material-specific fellowships, was given to Beatrix Baker, a recent graduate from Falmouth University where she was awarded best achievement in Contemporary Crafts at BA level and has since held numerous exhibitions in the UK.
