New Ashgate Winner Chrissy Silver will exhibit at the Festival of Crafts from 25 September until 6 November. Entry is free from 10.30-5pm.
Come along to the New Ashgate Gallery and discover the work of passionate gardener and potter, Chrissy Silver. Chrisy works with porcelain to make fine detailed lamps, pendants, and tea light holders using botanical pressings from flowers she grows in her garden. The lamp light accentuates the fine detail made by the pressings leaving a 'ghost image' where the light shines through. Chrissy also uses pieces is fine linen, lace, and lava stones.
All pieces are made with the freshest of foliage, making each piece unique and capturing the essence of the seasons for reflection in the darker winter months.
