Craft Council review

A very positive review of the Black Sheep exhibition at the National Centre for Craft & Design in Sleaford (UK) by Katy Dunn for the Crafts Council’s magazine Crafts.

The review also includes a mention of my work and coming from such a well respected publication, that is high praise indeed!

A quote from the article: “This exhibition explores the possibilities of felt as a three-dimensional medium. There is no stitching involved; these are surprisingly contemporary sulptural, constructed works that can be unsettling in the relationship between form and material, while others are breathtaking in their technical brilliance.

Metaphorically the material is stretched to the extreme. For instance, there’s what looks like a white ceramic or metal bowl by Dutch artist Gladys Paulus. It is very clean and pure in form and is punctured by precise circles. It’s only when you get closer (and remember the name of the exhibition) that you realise what it’s made from.
