It 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.
Jenny Beavan has delivered new work of both her stunning ceramic panels on glass and a sculptural work. 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.
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.
More pewter work by Melanie Guy has also arrived, there are new ‘wallsculptures’ but also a selection of tableware and sculptural works, which is a new departure for Melanie. This includes coasters, dishes, paperweights and a very elegant Sushi dish. On the shelf above Melanie’s work are Rebecca Harvey’s latest porcelain vessels. Her work is smooth yet tactile with a number of different shaped bowls of various sizes as well as her serving sets on Oak plates with Cornish Pewter Spoons.
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 shop.
