Rollers and Breakers | Emma Jeffryes
with Adam Buick and Rowena Brown
26 March to 6 May
We open our 2016 season with an exhibition of work by St Ives artist Emma Jeffryes, Jerwood Makers prize winner Adam Buick and ceramic artist Rowena Brown.
In recent years Emma Jeffryes has established herself as one of St Ives’ most distinctive and well-loved painters. Her naive paintings of the town’s unique landmarks and vistas draw on a palette of vivid ocean colours and her lively brushwork conveys the vibrant energy of this busy coastal community.
Ceramicist Adam Buick’s beautifully understated, Korean inspired Moon Jars are created from clays, grit and metal ores sourced directly from the land and focus on the individual’s subjective experience of landscape.
Rowena Brown’s hand-built ceramic houses are coloured with slips, part-glazed and either earthenware or raku fired. They have a pleasingly minimal quality and when grouped together form their own interchangeable and visually striking community of structures.
View the exhibition and view the Emma Jeffryes catalogue.
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.

We have a wonderful programme of exhibitions throughout the 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 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.
