Robert Fornell - A Headline Collection of New Work

Robert Fornell - A Headline Collection of New Work

We first had the pleasure of showing Robert Fornell’s incredible work back in 2019. It was an immediate hit with our clients looking for work of highly distinguished quality, form and intent. Little did we know then that this initial collection of work would lead to such a strong professional and personal connection to the maker himself, someone we now think of as good a friend as much as a represented artist. Since that initial showing in 2019 Robert’s work has always been greeted with enormous enthusiasm by our clients with them adding his pieces to their collections world wide and always enquiring as to when the next collection of works might arrive with us. So we are delighted to announce a major collection of new works, some 70 in total, will be exhibited with the gallery from September 3rd 2021. In this new collection we see Rob continuing to embrace many Japanese forms and aesthetics across an exciting repertoire of work, each bursting with the considered but naturally flowing artistic attitude he brings to his process. With many new directions being followed, this carefully selected and curated offering of work comes from a year of making and firing and we are delighted beyond words to be staging his largest collection of work ever assembled in the UK. The new collection will be made available online on Friday September 3rd 2021 at 7pm BST and in gallery from Saturday September 4th 2021.

Landscapes in Fire and Water

Richard has been working for some months now creating this exciting new body of works for this, his first solo show at the Stratford Gallery. Saving only the very best pieces for the show from both his electric and new wood fired kilns, these new works offer a beautiful contrast in both firing techniques and results. We very much look forward to sharing this new body of work with you both in gallery and online. The show will open online from 7pm Friday October 1st, and in Gallery Saturday 2nd, where Richard will be present to discuss the exhibition from 3pm.

Wider than the sky, deeper than the sea

Wider than the sky, deeper than the sea

New works from Kerry Harding. 1st - 22nd May 2021

"This recent body of work was completed during our most recent lockdown and is as expected influenced by what we have experienced over the last 12 months. I have always sought out the odd, the weird, the sublime, and realise after a year of seeking solace in distant horizons that these appealing aspects are almost always a result of Cornwall’s relationship with the sky. Being on the north coast of a peninsular means the ever changing clouds, light, shadows and winds give little moments of intrigue and nuance only noticed when you live somewhere like this long enough to see beyond the undoubtable awe. The title ‘Wider than the sky, deeper than the sea’ came after reading the poem ‘The Brain – is wider than the sky’ by Emily Dickinson. This poem celebrates the complexity of the human brain and our power of imagination and comprehension. This felt poignant on many levels, the wonders and perseverance of our medical scientists, our individual resilience to process and reflect on events, the renewed appreciated of our natural world in this process and my own creative practice which reconfigures and reinvents the landscape within a studio." Kerry Harding, April 2021
