The Joy of Making Exhibition

The other day me & my creative chums went off on a jolly to see 'The Joy of Making' exhibition at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.  I had not been to the gallery for about 10 years & must say I was pretty impressed! (Great cafe too...)
The exhibition was about 'celebrating traditional & contemporary handcrafted objects'.  For me the most exciting pieces were the laser cut vessels by artist Helen Snell.  These 50+ pieces had been inspired by the Polish paper cuts from the gallery's collection.
The exhibition continues only until 14th April - so if you get the chance go see it over Easter!

 The reflections in the glossy black surface were amazing....

This was some of the folk art inspiration....
Frustratingly my camera battery then ran out so I had to take further pics on my phone - I'll post some of those too in a while!

Loved the textures on these little ceramic drawers in the sculpture gallery too.
