Gordon Baldwin & Matthew Harris / 2nd November 2019 - 23rd November 2019
We are delighted to exhibit, for the first time together, two makers who share a friendship and a love of music. We hope through this pairing to create a dialogue between Gordon’s ceramics and Matthew’s wall pieces – a conversation between makers.

In the Window - Midori Takaki 1 - 30th November 2019
"When I was a child in Japan I thought I would become a writer. My head was a full of imagination, memories, feelings, thoughts and stories.Now I capture the floating thoughts in ceramics. Once they were given shapes, they become grounded. I create something small almost daily at night. I call them my journal. I am writing in ceramics." - Midori Takaki
