January, a grey month with post Christmas blues and a desire to clear away all the clutter of the previous year and start afresh. Thats how I feel about January anyhow, after a busy Christmas I took 2 weeks off to reflect and gather my creative thoughts for the gallery.
An exciting time for me, I spent some time going through all my current artists and working out which pieces sell well and which sell not quite so well. Its vitally important I keep things looking fresh and new in the gallery, there is nothing worse than walking in to a shop or gallery and seeing the same products for sale every time.
Once I had created some space in the gallery for new artists I headed to 'Top Drawer', a huge trade fair in Kensington Olympia. The show has an abundance of mass produced products, that although being lovely, don't fit with the handmade ethos of the gallery, however there is a 'Craft' section which was my main focus.
My lovely mum Jane White was picked to show at the Society of Designer Craftsmen Stand alongside some of my other artists like Adam Aaronson and Stephanie Wright so after a quick coffee with them I set about catching up with current artists and finding new ones....
Lindy Barletta's new colour ranges coming to the gallery soon.
I managed to catch up with some of my existing artists and see their new ranges of work. Lindy Barletta has lots of sumptuous new colour ranges out, Gin Durham is busy creating different animal sculptures, Ali Tomlin's stand was looking fab, Taisir Gibreel's has some gorgeous new colour-ways on her luxurious silk scarves and Virginia Graham had a wonderful range of single stem vases.
Taisir Gibreel's new colour-ways coming to the gallery soon.
Virginia Graham is currently making some new ceramics for the gallery.
Ali Tomlin's selection of work looking super as usual.
I met so many wonderful new artists and craftsmen and am now so excited to introduce them to the gallery. Keep an eye out on our 'NEW IN' section on the website and on our Instagram and Facebook and you'll be the first to know.
LOOK OUT FOR THESE NEW ARTISTS COMING TO THE GALLERY IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS!
