Justine Allison

Language of Clay: Shifting Lines

Main Gallery

01 December 2018 until 19 January 2019

Justine Allison’s intricately made vessels are eloquent and uplifting. Light is attracted to them, held, and radiates from them. There is a quietude to Justine’s work that reflects both the meditative process of its making and the grace of the finished forms. Justine has her own language of clay. Balanced between functional and sculptural, her ceramic practice is rich and original. With a profound understanding of her materials and a honed visual aesthetic, Justine’s vessels are resolved.

Shifting Lines is an exhibition in The Language of Clay series, a Mission Gallery National Touring initiative curated By Ceri Jones.

Sanctuary

Sanctuary

Gallery 3

01 December 2018 until 19 January 2019

Sanctuary is a celebration of natural materials and their place in our homes and hearts. Creating a space that is warm and welcoming, counteracting our busy day-to-day lives, using textures such as soft leather, linen, warm wool, rustic wood and ceramics creating an oasis of calm. Understated, functional, elegant and above all a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the modern world.

Fern Robinson

Jewellery Showcase

Fern Robinson’s jewellery was first inspired by the simplicity of a child’s interaction with objects, which began her fascination with the urge we have to touch and play.

Leto & Ariadne

Leto & Ariadne

Craft showcase

04 August 2018 until 22 September 2018

Leto & Ariadne is the studio label of Nick Ozanne, a handweaver working on hand operated wooden looms. All parts of the process are carried out by hand in the studio, from the initial design and preparation of the warp, through to the final washing and hand finishing of the fabrics.

Using only natural fibres such as silk and wool as they work with the needs of the body and only improve with age and use, Nicks work is meant to be used; to be touched, stroked, caressed and lie against the skin providing a feeling of luxurious softness. They combine classic style with a deep sense of colour and his scarves were described by an article in Selvedge Magazine as allowing the wearer to ‘reconnect with a lost sense of Englishness’.
