Craft shop. Open daily, 10am-5.30pm

Our Guest Maker his Autumn is metal worker Lisa Wisdom from Cornwall who has brought her artwork in rust and copper to the Guild for a limited time only!

Lisa's studio is a two hundred year old blacksmith's forge in the remote and overgrown post-industrial landscape of a disused Granite Quarry. Her artworks depict the Cornish landscape, quite literally arising from her immediate surroundings.

''Stepping from my door, I walk through, and over the landscape, gathering the archaeology of industry. It is in this time of gathering and observation that the found sheets of corrugated metal and old copper tanks suggest to my eye what they might become, be it sky or wall or building or sea. My palette is the naturally occurring shades of rust and the blues of copper – the materials own reaction to climate. I utilise charcoals minimally for details or tonal variation to increase perspective. Surrounded by derelict buildings and rusting industrial machinery, I want my work to speak of the hardship of post-industrial landscapes, the scarring of the land, and the waste left behind, but also the hope and beauty in the dereliction, the way nature creeps back in to form this distinctive and beautiful landscape.''
