Here we are again – the first featured maker month of our year following on the Annual Graduate Show. Which according to the considerable feedback we have had this year was much enjoyed by our visitors. The show continues until 30th January so I am not able to advise on the graduate with the most votes or the lucky name drawn from the hat. We will be letting you know as soon as the show closes.
There are three makers featured from February 3rd to 28th. Once again, we have tried to ensure that there is a stimulating contrast between the makers.
Sophie Southgate has exhibited at Bevere before and regular visitors will remember her use of vivid contrasting colour which enhances her geometric pots – all made with great skill and meticulous concern for detail and precision. They are very distinctive.
Jane Muir is our third featured maker. She has previously brought so much pleasure to our visitors with her amusing sculptures both large and small. They are pieces that make an immediate impact. It is their anonymity that allows us to identify for ourselves familiar individuals. Subtle colour and seductive surface textures are key elements in her work; immensely appealing but never sentimental. I am also looking forward to hosting the Makers Lunch on the first Saturday, when Jane will be talking informally about her sculpture and her creative spirit.
