New Brewery Arts’ summer pop-up exhibition, A Cut Above, will be on show from Monday 11 to Saturday 23 July 2011, when three members of the Cotswold Craftsmen group will be showcasing their unique work.
The range of high-quality items on show, and for on sale, have the common theme of being produced by craftsmen who all cut into their raw materials to produce unique and beautiful works of art.
John Button carves intricate wildlife walking sticks and sculptures from native woods, with a particular emphasis on the careful study of nature which helps him create carved creatures full of life and character.
Nat Morley makes hand prints from bold woodcuts depicting both familiar and unusual animals, birds and fish – with attitude! Her influences range from William Morris to aboriginal art, creating a lively and distinctive style.
Hazel Morris, meanwhile, creates a wide range of precious and mixed jewellery, from large one-off cast pieces to smaller intricate pieces with moving parts. Her work is inspired by Anglo-Saxon design and animals, with a contemporary feel.
On show in Cirencester for a fortnight, visitors to A Cut Above will also get the chance to meet one of the makers throughout the exhibition, with each more than happy to discuss their work, inspirations and potential commissions.
