Emma Jeffryes | Land and Sea
with ceramics by Maria Kristofersson

31 March to 18 May

We launch our 2018 exhibition schedule with new work by one of Cornwall’s best loved painters, and one of Sweden’s leading contemporary ceramicists.

Artist Emma Jeffryes draws on the abundance of visual inspiration she finds in and around her West Cornwall home. Themes in this exhibition of new paintings are as contrasting as the study of crashing waves, and the delicate petals of flowers in West Cornwall’s National Dahlia Collection. Ceramicist Maria Kristofersson’s finely constructed works consider the polarity of concepts like space and solidity, fragility and strength. Pieces in this collection include her distinctive box shaped forms, along with a series of coil built, glazed cylinders, and bottles made on the wheel and altered by hand.

James and Tilla Waters

28 April to 19 May

Award winning studio potters James and Tilla met while apprenticed to acclaimed ceramicist Rupert Spira, and went on to establish their own pottery in 2002. Combining James’s making skills with Tilla’s love of colour and design, this exclusive collection marks an exciting change of direction away from their well-known functional ware, towards large scale, more decorative pieces.

Jane Reeves | Refresh

5 May to 19 May

Jane Reeves’ unique glass paintings are inspired by the quality of light, natural energy and wild beauty of the Cornish coast. Her work is infused with both the gentle rhythm of harbour waves and the powerful crash of huge beach breakers, with all the colour, light and sound that they possess.

John Miller

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.
