Over the past month I have made several visits to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. The exhibition will launch here in October and some of the exhibitors are specifically thinking through commissions developed about Birmingham or work that is related to the Waterhall Gallery space. We have some great projects coming together including  a temporary project that is being developed by Jivan Astfalck and her MA students at the Birmingham School of Jewellery which explores badges and will compliment the work that Elizabeth Turrell is producing work for the exhibition. Three of the exhibitors Paul Scott, Shane Waltener and David Gates visited the exhibition space in July and I will try to update some ideas and thoughts from them beginning with a link to David’s blog where he talks about his experience of visiting the Waterhall.

  1. Hello! I don’t know if you are familiar with The Guild/Artful Home http://www.artfulhome.com. We are a US company which represents the work of about 1,000 artist online and in our mail-order catalog. I am starting to write about craft and slow design on SmallPlanet.com, and came across you. AS far as I am concerned, craft artists are the exemplars of the practice of Slow Design. I would love to engage in dialog with you, and perhaps there is a way that we can help get US exposure for your show. Please feel free to contact me at lbayne@guild.com
    Best wishes,
