This new iteration of Crafted Collectables, available from November 2021, presents small-scale works by gallery artists and the wider community of artist-designer-makers. These sculptural objects and wall pieces act as artefacts to be treasured over a lifetime, nurtured through family generations or gifted in an act of friendship. We believe that within the taxonomy of objecthood the crafted art object has a unique skill in transferring emotional content; abundant with conceptual narrative and the maker’s affinity to material, it proposes a focal point upon which memories and ideas can be created, held or restored over time.
The exhibition features work by QEST Garfield Weston Foundation Scholar and leatherworker Frances Pinnock and QEST William Parker Scholar and metalworker Daniel Freyne.
