Elements: The Beauty of Imperfection


2-13 September 2017, Bamford Barn, Daylesford, Gloucestershire
16-13 September 2017, 169 Draycott Ave, South Kensington, London SW3 3AJ

The curated exhibition will bring together a group of highly skilled and innovative designers and artists that respond to elements of nature, through process, material and philosophy. In today’s world of high technology, craft has a distinct and powerful role to play in culture and feels more in tune with contemporary art philosophies now, more than ever. It is an essential need to re-connect with the elements in nature where natural harmonies and the beauty of imperfection are conceptualised through traditional processes of hand-crafting with organic and recyclable materials such as clay, wood, glass and natural fibres. 

Featuring works by: Christian Burchard (USA), Ernst Gamperl (Germany), Akiko Hirai (UK), Marlène Huissoud (UK), Eleanor Lakelin (UK), Pascal Oudet (France), Michael Peterson (USA), Marc Ricourt (France), Wycliffe Stutchbury (UK), Nic Webb (UK).
