A seasonal Christmas selling exhibition in our Riverside Gallery, with hand-made craft items drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of winter in South West England, and the alternative ‘world forms’ that are created by mist, frost, ice and snow.
Beautiful and elegant, one-off gift ideas for the home
‘Sometimes, in deep winter, life seems to pause.
Snow falls silently, and it muffles the usual sounds. The cold air is very still and clear.
Darkness never quite falls: all night there is the faint glow of the moonlight reflected from the white ground.
. . . A new kind of frost-time takes hold’.
Extract from ‘Weatherland’ by Alexandra Harris
