Craftsmanship merges beautifully with design principles in this 3-person exhibition at General Fine Craft from March 27 – May 6.  See how these artists enhance the innate qualities of the materials they use, creating well-defined shapes with skill, thoughtfulness and sensitivity. Each maker will be displaying new work made specifically for this show.

 

Please join us for the exhibition opening and meet the artists on

Sunday April 1 from 2-4pm

 

EIKO MAEDA expresses traditional Japanese aesthetics with her technically complex and exceptionally beautiful nerikomi porcelain wares. Made with skill and subtlety of shape and line, her bowls have the softness and lightness of a blossoming flower.

ANDREA MUELLER is an experienced jewellerymaker working with sterling silver, gold, pearls and semi-precious gem settings. Her distinctive pendants, earrings and rings reflect contemporary design ideas, often playing with geometric relationships, patterns and forms found in nature.

ERIC YOUNG  crafts one-of-a-kind cutting and serving boards using sustainably harvested hardwoods found on his rural property. He has an eye for reading the wood, discerning shapes out of the flow of grain and enhancing knots, burls and bark edges; in effect, telling a story of the tree’s life.
