INTERIORS, DESIGN AND CRAFT INTERSECT AT
‘HUE, LINE & FORM’ EXHIBITION

7th September -  3rd November 2007
AT CONTEMPORARY APPLIED ARTS GALLERY, W1

In one of its most ambitious exhibitions for years, The Contemporary Applied Arts gallery is hosting ‘Hue, Line & Form’, a reflection of interior trends in current British craft.

Timed to coincide with the London Design Festival, ‘Hue, Line & Form’ not only explores ways craft is used in interiors but also how the definition between craft and design is becoming increasingly blurred.

Curated by the exciting new consultancy BRIING, made up of designer Peter Ting and artist/curator Brian Kennedy, the exhibition encapsulates new work from 59 of the top names in British contemporary applied arts in the disciplines of textiles, ceramics, glass, metal and wood.

Work from incredibly established names sit alongside pieces from exciting young, yet-to-be-discovered makers.  While maintaining the theme of ‘Hue, Line & Form’ throughout the run, this ambitious exhibition will go through a transformation half way through, with a totally new set of work being exhibited, allowing two different interpretations on the theme. The exhibition is the first to be commissioned by the Contemporary Applied Art’s newly appointed Director, Sarah Edwards and signals an exciting new period in the organisation’s history.

Highlights of the exhibition include work from:
Katie Walker    – innovative wooden furniture
Mark Bickers    – lighting using studio blown and manufactured glass
Ptolemy Mann    – loom-woven architectural art pieces for interiors
Wales & Wales   – contemporary wooden furniture
David Clarke   – daring silverware for interiors
Lubna Chowdhary   – vibrant ceramic tiles and furniture
Alpa Mistry    – loom-woven hangings, incorporating recycled materials
