Arts and Crafts – Contemporary meets Classic
The spirit of the Arts and Crafts Movement is flourishing at the De Morgan Centre this Autumn, with a selling exhibition of finely handcrafted glass created by art collective Teepee Glass.
The De Morgan Centre prides itself on showcasing contemporary artists who demonstrate the same fine artistic and creative talent that William and Evelyn De Morgan themselves possessed.
Teepee Glass is a collective of eight glass artists who met at Central St Martins. Each glass artist creates stunning, distinct pieces, ranging from jewellery and dishes, to windows and glass installations.
The works in Inspired showcase the same values of hand craftsmanship, simple forms and quality materials that were close to the De Morgans. The latters’ influence on the artists is clear – particularly in the florals and mythical animals from William’s pottery designs.
Each piece in the exhibition is unique and available for sale at great value, with prices starting from £38.
Come and join us from 11th September 2013 - 11th January 2014!
