Alex Lowery’s new paintings are exploratory, taking his distinctive style down bold new turnings. He has always had the ability to find the essence of place but now he is presenting his places in new lights. In these paintings his colours are unusual, fresh and spring-like, his angles of view odd and reductive, causing the viewer to pause, look again and see the poetry of his vision.

A major selection of recent pots by this superb craftsman. Potter Richard Batterham is probably this country’s leading maker of domestic stoneware. He fires his pots with wood ash at his Dorset pottery. His work is functional, human, satisfying and beautiful. Some pots, he says, ‘call out to me that they are really good ones’ and these are the pots in this show. For information on Richard Batterham and to see the pots click here.
Petter Southall works in curves of solid wood, steam bent using boatbuilding techniques combined with immaculate cabinetmaking. His furniture is made to be used with gentle curved edges and comfortable human dimensions. His finishes are natural and understated, his designs Scandinavian in their clarity and simplicity. Made in a workshop that is environmentally aware, using carefully sourced timber, Petter’s furniture is healthy and life-enhancing. Click here for more on Petter Southall.
