The New Craftsman Gallery


The exhibition, The Art of Gathering, will bring together artists and makers who use ‘gathering’ as an integral part of their practice.

àite cruinneachaidh – gathering place (Scots Gaelic)

Gathering is such an evocative notion, especially here in the Highlands. Gathering together often meant walking many miles on narrow tracks. My journey has been more of a gathering of myself and what is important to me, and ultimately finding my place in the world. Working with clay, knowing the processes and history of the material and its domestic uses always brings me back to how it connects human beings, how it gathers us together in a common humanity.

The show also includes a local painter from Newlyn, Michael Porter showing his exquiste ‘Dirt Series’, the studio collective Forest and Found – naturally dyed applique textiles by Abigail Booth and wood vessels by Max Bainbridge (they have been selected this year for the Jerwood Makers prize ), silversmith Stuart Cairns and the Irish basketmaker Joe Hogan (finalist in the Loewe Foundation Craft prize 2018).
