In collaboration with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and to coincide with the run up to Valentine’s Day, Contemporary Applied Arts is staging a spectacular selling exhibition to spotlight the BHF ‘Mending Broken Hearts Appeal’. The goal of the Appeal is challenging, yet simple; to spend £50 million to fund groundbreaking research that could begin to literally ‘mend broken hearts’ in as little as ten years time.

Over twenty of CAA’s diverse and gifted applied artists have come together to present a collaborative show with ‘mending broken hearts’ at its core. Some are particularly driven by personal life experiences, others by an emotional or metaphorical response to a theme that engages us all. Representing fields ranging from furniture, glass, and jewellery making to willow artistry , ceramics,
metalwork, silversmithing and textile design, each artist has applied his or her own highly individual skill to create pieces that are at once, collectable, evocative and beautiful.
