Throughout 2022 I was part of an exciting project and exhibition called “In a New Light” This Arts Council funded project explored three endangered crafts in north Devon and their revival. Here is a video about the project.
Set up by Edward Crumpton and Jess Pearson “In a New Light” brought together 3 skilled craftspeople from endangered crafts, to teach 3 artist or crafts people their skills. These new skills could then be incorporated into new works.
I was very lucky to work with heritage gilder and Verre-églomisé artist Danni Bradford who taught me the basics of water and oil gilding which i have incorporated into my new work.
I created a side table in American Walnut with a beaten gilded golden disc in the center. This unique heritage piece is the first piece in a new collection, please see the images below.
