Neil Davies | Call of the Wild
with ceramics by Jin Eui Kim and jewellery by Guy Royle
8 July to 28 August
Painted over the past winter and into early summer 2017, this new collection of works by leading Cornish landscape artist Neil Davies demonstrates the artist’s intimate relationship with the rugged beauty of West Cornwall. Accompanying this exhibition is a collection of unique ceramics by South Korean born Jin Eui Kim, whose mastery of the illusory effects of tonal bands on three-dimensional surfaces has made his work amongst the most admired in contemporary ceramics today. Also on show is a new collection of jewellery by designer-maker Guy Royle.

Emma Williams | My St Ives
with ceramics by Yuta Segawa
12 August to 2 September
Emma Williams’ paintings reflect her background in printed textile design. In this new collection, Emma seeks to capture the essence of her own relationship with St Ives, pairing the domestic detail of interior spaces with framed views of the town and harbour, and celebrating her passion for the distinctive ceramics found in the town. Japanese artist Yuta Segawa’s extraordinary, hand thrown miniature pottery pushes the boundaries of what has become known as ‘micro craft’. Using more than five hundred original glazes, his tiny pots test the limits of what the human hand can create on such a small scale.

Throughout his career John Miller was closely identified with the New Craftsman gallery. His lifetime partner Michael Truscott kindly allowed this association to continue following John's death in 2002, and we are therefore proud to exhibit remaining works from John’s Cornwall studio.
