Full Bloom, the second of our spring 2020 exhibitions features paintings from Cornwall artists Sophie Harding and Jill Hudson along with glass by Ruth Shelley and ceramics by John Pollex.
When I started planning Full Bloom last year I really wanted to find a solution to a problem that I’m often presented with in the gallery: “I need a vase, but it’s got to be the perfect size for buds/tall blooms/dried flowers (delete as appropriate) and I can never find the right one.” As the perfect vase seemed to be rather elusive, I decided to set a challenge to ceramicist Lucy Burley and, to aid her in her quest, I put her in touch with Nikki Nicholson, who creates stunning arrangements from her Millbrook based Flora and Fern Bespoke Floral Design.Byre Gallery regular ceramicist Lucy Burley created a wonderful collection of vases for the exhibition: with the help of Nikki Nicholson from Millbrook based Flora and Fern Bespoke Floral Design. The results should have been unveiled at our Private View drinks with a demo from Nikki showing us how to create the perfect display in the ideal vases. Sadly we can't welcome you with a glass of fizz but we can offer you a virtual experience as both Lucy and Nikki have been kind enough to film their creations. Which you can see here TB inserted.
