Just Arts Winter Showcase
Mariners Gallery St Ives
29th October – 3rd November 2006
A few years ago, a group of artists and makers formed Just Arts to promote their work. They all have workshops and galleries in St Just: there are painters, sculptors, potters, furniture makers, jewellers, textile artists, photographers and a glass designer. Following the success of their Summer 2005 exhibition, this year the group is holding a winter show at the Mariners Gallery in St Ives.
Three CC&GG members are taking part. There is an open invitation for members to attend the show.
Jonathan Hancock’s earthenware and high fired stoneware pottery is hand thrown. His output ranges from large planters to all types of domestic ware, full dinner services, occasional one-off pieces and his unique trademark “bird jugs”. Jonathan enjoys experimenting with glazes and slips and textures to produce highly unusual and attractive colours and finishes, giving his pots a distinct and unique creative edge. www.stjust-pottery.co.uk
Helen Jay’s thrown tableware is a riot of colour, inspired by the intensity of light and colour in the local area. She works from her studio in Cot Manor, Cot Valley. www.helenjaypottery.co.uk
Fi Kilpatrick of Artglass-UK uses stained glass to create fresh innovative designs. From room or fireplace screens to backgammon boards or windows, as well as limited production kiln formed glass bowls & landscapes & figure studies, their potential in modern interiors/architecture is limitless.
