We had a lovely few days in London at the inspirational COLLECT. This is my third post about COLLECT but as it is the most prestigious event in the British Craft calendar I wanted another chance to talk about it. Here are a few of our highlights of the fair.
Rainforest (above) was-a beautiful immersive installation by Valeria Nascimento comprising thousands of white porcelain pieces http://www.valerianascimento.com
Our favourite gallery was Katie Jones presenting exquisite contemporary Japanese applied arts including: indigo dyed hemp wall hangings by Shihoko Fukumoto; mokume-gane vessels of folded and beaten precious metals by Ryuhei Sako and intricate knotted slinky like bamboo structures by Chikuunsia IV Tanabe. katiejonesjapan.com
We also love Steffen Dam’s extraordinary glass specimen collections presented by Joanna Bird Contemporary Collections joannabird.com
