COLLECT craft fair drew to a close today following a four-day run at the Saatchi Gallery, London 8 – 11 May 2015.
The Crafts Council exhibition coincided with the first ever London Craft Week, 6 – 10 May. Some stitched and woven creations caught our eye amongst the multitude of glass, ceramic and jewellery works. An unusual Japanese carpet by Kuri Yorigami, made in Kyoto, incorporates classical motifs of fighting animals battling it out on a tennis court.
Metal objects containing cross stitched food items by Severija Inčirauskaitė Kriaunvičienė adorned the artcart stand. Indigo dyed wall hangings by Shihoko Fukumoto illuminated at ARTCOURT Gallery and Katie Jones. And a dramatic large scale Alice Kettle embroidery could be found at caa.
