30th September - 17th November 2013
Bud to Bloom presents contemporary craft works inspired by the natural world and life-cycle of plants, selected from the Crafts Council Collection. The shapes, patterning, colours and materials of the works in the exhibition have been influenced by plants, flowers and fruit, in playful, creative and experimental ways.
It includes leading UK glassmakers Angela Jarman and Neil Wilkin, textile artist Michael Brennand-Wood, designer Tord Boontje, silversmiths David Clarke, Junko Mori and Lin Cheung, and ceramicists Felicity Aylieff, Mary Rogers and Richard Slee.
The build and graphics are designed by Mentsen and the exhibition has been developed in partnership with Forty Hall & Estate, Enfield Council.
