What’s in store in May!

remonjephcott appleIt has been a while, but we have a new web-site. Perfect time for an update on what is currently in the gallery.

We have had several new deliveries of jewellery, wirework by Kate Packer, for example, and also a delivery of Remon Jephcott’s lovely (and humorous) ceramics and ceramic jewellery. New are these decaying fruit. We have apples, a pear and a cherry. The fly on the apple is made from real silver.

You can find out more about her and her work in this month’s Ceramic Review. We still have some copies. We also have new tableware by Lincoln Kirby-Bell. In addition, he has made some wallvases or flower pots in his signature style.lkb wallvase

Glass artist Richard Glass and metalsmith Noah Taylor have also dropped by new work. Some of Noah’s latest sculptures are visible in the image above along the back wall next to one of Richard’s Splash Sculptures.

New artists and new work

We have started the 2013 with some new artists and plenty of new work by others. Corinna Butler is new to 45 Southside Gallery. Corinna and has lived in Plymouth for 12 years. She started painting when she was in her teens and then learnt to scuba dive. Diving opened her the door to an underwater world which has inspired her ever since. She joined the Plymouth College of Art to study working with glass. “I like to experiment with different styles and forms. This work was inspired by cloth and tartan, especially ragged pieces and off cuts. I wanted to allow light to move on the pieces so I have left them exposed to the viewer.”

Nicola Crocker who took part in October’s Westcountry Potters Association exhibition has also brought in some new work including a range of framed ceramic landscape tiles.

Another popular ceramic artist Rebecca Harvey’s new work includes a range of bowls in all sizes, vases and beakers in her distinctive colours and tactile surfaces. She has had a busy year after an exhibition in Fortnum and Mason last year. The new work also includes some of her very popular serving dishes on Cornish oak plates and with Cornish pewter spoons.

With Mother’s Day coming up very soon our selection of ceramic, silver and wirework  jewellery continues to sell well.

We are featuring Devon Potter Tim Andrews this month. Watch out for some images of his work here very soon. The exhibition looks great and it is almost a shame to part with some of the stunning pieces!

As always you can view more work in detail in our online gallery.

Cornish Wares

A collection of porcelain for the table, a gathering, where time and occasion are valued. Rebecca’s latest work also includes Cornish pewter and oak for her stylish and sensous salt and pepper sets. Two small bowls are set onto an oak tray with pewter spoons. Subtle colours and the combination of glazes, shapes and surface texture make her work stand out inviting to touch.

“A warm, soft satin glaze envelops the calm but strong forms in a smooth, rich, tactile surface. Form and function come together with subtle traces of the hand that are left when the porcelain is soft, creating an intimate engagement with the objects through use.

The objects reflect and absorb the ever-changing atmosphere that emphasizes the porcelain’s sensitivity to light and a translucent quality of fine edges. Concerns of function and form inspire these objects, thinking through making identified within an applied art context.” Rebecca describes her work.

She has been honoured by the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust in 2005 and the Royal College of Art in 2007. A dedicated teacher, she is also known for her publications on glazes and ceramic tableware. Widely exhibited, her work can be found in both public and private collections.
