Jerwood Contemporary Makers

June 27, 2008

Drummond’s exhibits include 7 dish forms from his Star Tessellation series and a whisky cup with integrated terrain inside.

The exhibition has been curated by a panel of experts which included the ceramist, writer and curator Edmund de Waal, joined by Swedish craft and design critic Love Jönsson and Amanda Game.

Edmund de Waal comments:  As this is the first in a series of Jerwood Contemporary Makers exhibitions we have had the wonderful and challenging opportunity to conceive of it in an entirely new way. Rather than bringing makers together by discipline this exhibition brings seven artists from a diverse range of disciplines into dialogue with each other in the Jerwood Space. All of them are passionate about extending their practice and all of them are advocates for discovering innovative ways in which their art is seen and understood. It is a particularly exciting time for this exhibition to be happening: the applied arts are a thriving area of the visual arts and this is a great opportunity to see beautiful, lyrical, challenging work.’

Jerwood Contemporary Makers forms part of the Jerwood Visual Arts series.  Launched in 2006, Jerwood Visual Arts is a series of awards and prizes that celebrate a range of disciplines across the visual arts, including painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and digital moving image. 

Jerwood Contemporary Makers is on show at the Jerwood Space, 171 Union Street, London SE1, from 5 June – 20 July 2008
