Lara Duncan has a reputation for creating exceptional kiln formed glass vessels which are "dropped" by manipulating the glass using heat and gravity to fall flow through handmade formers to create stunning art pieces. We are delighted to offer not only a selection of her signature vessels but also a selected sample of some of her other work including decorative art and jewellery. 

Preview by ticket only 4pm to 8pm Thursday 29th October 2015. Open to the public from Friday 30th October to Saturday 14th November 10am to 5pm (11am to 4pm on Sundays).

Flow represents movement and fluidity, it can be literal, in terms of the physical movement of glass or metaphorical representing time, elements, action.  We are pleased to welcome a mix of local to international artists, which includes established artists from the British Contemporary Glass Society. We have invited a small number of cutting edge new artists for their first exhibiton in a gallery.

For hundreds of years, works of art have been given as gifts.  Museums and galleries feature Faberge Eggs, jewellery and portraits which capture the special and personal relationship that are celebrated when art is given as a gift.  In modern society when so much is mass produced and offered for barely more than its make cost, it is difficult to find special gifts that demonstrate care and value.  We have gathered together a selection of beautiful and inspiring gifts from local artists and artisans, with affordable prices from £5 to £500.

We still have space for one or two more artists in our Flow exhibition, for a last minute chance to apply go to
