Edge to Edge Exhibition

Edge to Edge: Where Does a Vessel Begin? Vessels have been made and used across cultures since prehistoric times: for feeding, storage, marking an occasion, as ritual objects and as symbols of power. Standing between inside and outside, the edge of a vessel breaks space into two, creating new borders and potential playground for new meanings.  ‘Edge to Edge’ is a starting point for a collaborative project between enameller Tamar de Vries Winter and silversmith Adi Toch. Both were born in Jerusalem, a generation apart, and met for the first time in the UK, where they established their professional practices. Through this dialogue they question issues of matter and function, the framed space of the vessel, and the fusion of different materials to create a new entity. They test the boundaries between them as makers, and between enamel and metal, trying to challenge the perception of each ingredient in the work. Asked to curate an exhibition for Studio Fusion Gallery, Tamar and Adi have invited eight artists who explore the vessel form through different disciplines to respond to the theme: Ane Christensen, David Clarke, Simone ten Hompel, Jessica Turrell, Mara Irsara, Elspeth Owen, Victoria Smith and Elizabeth Turrell. Amongst the materials used: metal, glass, wood, ceramic and felt.

Julia Selects

Thrilled to be one of Julia Peyton-Jones's favourite !!!!!!

Julia Peyton-Jones, Director of the Serpentine Galleries, will be guest-curating Julia Peyton-Jones Selects, a showcase of 23 personal highlights from this year’s Goldsmiths’ Fair.

“Colour, form, texture and the making process play key roles in both the contemporary jewellery and silversmithing world as in much of contemporary art.  Like the world’s most exciting artists today, the skilled designer-makers at Goldsmiths’ Fair are constantly pushing boundaries to bring exquisite new works to the discerning public,” commented Julia-Peyton Jones.

Julia Peyton-Jones Selects builds on Zaha Hadid Selects, which last year introduced guest curators to the Fair’s exciting programme of events.
