Crafted Collectables, launched in Autumn 2020, presents small-scale works by gallery artists and the wider community of artist-designer-makers. These sculptural objects and wall pieces act as artefacts to be treasured over a lifetime, nurtured through family generations or gifted in an act of friendship. We believe that within the taxonomy of objecthood the crafted art object has a unique skill in transferring emotional content; abundant with conceptual narrative and the maker’s affinity to material, it proposes a focal point upon which memories and ideas can be created, held or restored over time.
While in June the much postponed exhibition for the collaborative exchange project with ceramicist Kim Norton Earthbound: a fascination with what lies beneath our feet
will be shown as part of the Ground Works exhibition series.

Join artist/papermaker Jane Ponsford and ceramicist/curator Kim Norton as they explore the similarities and differences in their approach to working with landscape and place. Both Jane and Kim work with materials collected or foraged from different environments to explore materiality and their site-specific creative responses.
They were engaged in a collaborative exchange project during 2020, which involved each sending a series of parcels of collected and made objects, photographs and writing to which the other would respond. The only rule was that they work within the A6 paper format.
As part of the exhibition there will also be a paper making workshop with Jane Ponsford and an ‘in-conversation’ event between Kim Norton and Jane Ponsford. Dates, times and booking information to follow.
‘The artist enters a specific state of mind when he is walking, enabling a creative space to appear. There is a reduction in conscious attention, a letting go, and the mind is able to slip into a different gear.’
