London Craft Week - Our Top Picks
London Craft Week has once again been in glorious full swing with events and exhibitions across the capital. Here were some of our favourites:
Yali Glass debuted a new series of sculptural objects in collaboration with Ikebana Projects. A hanadome (translated from Japanese literally as 'holding flowers') is a glass tool originally used for ikebana flower arrangements. These re-imagined hanadome sculptures – made by Murano glass artisans – capture the light with their softly sculpted curved contours.
Lyndsey Ingram Gallery is showing new pots by Richard Pomeroy. The Somerset-based potter is known for his hand-built porcelain tableware in vivid rainbow colours. Hand building the pieces results in lovely thin rims and delicate translucence. We're big fans.
Nobu Hotel Shoreditch, where industrial chic meets Japanese style, hosted Crafting Japan, a series of demonstrations of traditional Japanese crafts which highlight sustainable practices from traditional paper lantern making to learning how to blend Japanese tea.
London Craft Week is at venues across London from 8th-14th May 2023.
