An exploration into the relationship
between words and making
Saturday 18 January - Sunday 23 March
Selected by Peter Florence, Director, Hay Festivals and Amanda Popham, renowned ceramicist and Member of the Devon Guild, this exhibition shows the work of regional, national and international artist-makers, working in disciplines of contemporary craft, who are directly influenced by words.
Narrative Remains explores the relationships between stories, poems, prose or quotes and the chosen makers’ work. The exhibition shows the imagination engendered by words and stories through the creation of contemporary craft. Work on show includes installations, photography, print, collage, enamel, ceramics and textiles. In these works the narrative emerges in the spaces between the pieces as well as between the viewer and the work, opening up more possibilities for extending the storytelling.
Exhibitors: Sonja Andrew, Sue Brown, Clare Goddard, Tina Hill, Effie Jessop, Iris Milward, Jitka Palmer,
Donna Rumble-Smith, Trudie Timlin Brown, Alex Valentine and Aine Venables.

Stuart Low Stained glass
Stuart is a Bristol-based visual artist and maker of architectural stained glass mainly working to commission on projects for the built environment. He says: 'The breadth of work undertaken is wide ranging, from traditionally crafted stained and painted glass windows to works that are made using the most up to date fabrication processes'. He also makes more intimate pieces like those on sale in our gallery.
These works reflect his interest in nature, gardening and open spaces and use mono to screen-printing in glass (using vitreous enamel) as well as painted and leaded stained glass techniques. ' I am interested in manipulating colour, the surface quality, and light transmitting qualities of glass.' Prices range from £38 for smallest wall panels.
ITEMS CAN BE TAKEN ON DAY OF PURCHASE. Contact us for more prices/details: 01626 832223
