Just thought I’d quickly share a couple of my favorite exhibits from Collect, the Crafts Council’s international art fair for contemporary objects which I visited at the weekend.Nathalie Lahdenmaki had a lovely collection of spoons on the Galleria Norsu stand. Beautiful delicate slithers of ceramic: etherial and beautiful. I also loved Ingjerd Hanevold’s wall mounted brooches, which you can see here on Lucy Harvey’s blog. Both, I guess, were collections where the maker had got into making many variations on a theme, which I realise is a way I like to work too. And actually I realise I liked the collections more than the individual pieces: for me the sum equalled more than the parts. A useful reminder: it’d be good to set time aside for working on an exploratory series, a bit like the bird brooch series I did for my graduation. Sorry no pictures – for some reason the ‘insert image’ button is missing today!
