With an international reputation amongst discerning art and craft collectors for our painting,
sculpture and quality studio ceramics, the New Craftsman is regarded as one of the most important
spaces for contemporary artists in St Ives.
The gallery is proud to exhibit original work by emerging Cornish artists and leading British
designer–makers. Our bright and spacious two floored gallery houses an ever-changing mix of
contemporary painting and craft across the disciplines, alongside a year-round programme of
exhibitions by established and up and coming painters and craftspeople.
We also hold the remaining studio works of celebrated painter John Miller, and continue to be the St
Ives town centre stockists for the Leach Pottery’s contemporary tableware range.
We have a wonderful programme of exhibitions throughout this year, beginning on 25th March with
our Easter show by St Ives painter Emma Jeffryes, ceramicist and Jerwood Makers prize winner
Adam Buick and ceramic artist Rowena Brown. Exhibiting artists for 2016 also include Akiko Hirai,
Neil Davies, Matthew Chambers, Chris Keenan, Matthew Lanyon and many others.
New Craftsman [is] one of [St Ives] finest galleries, offering a delightful mix of paintings, pots, jewellery and glass by famous artists and affordable newcomers.

New Craftsman continues to be the Leach Pottery’s nominated town centre stockist of the new Leach Tableware. Handmade and fired in St Ives, each piece is made with local clay and is designed for function and beauty. Available throughout the year.
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. Please see our John Miller page for further information.
