Made London curated by Tutton & Young returns to London with a new location in the shiny Canary Wharf’s Canada Square Park. From the underground to the pavilion the route was littered with signage & helpful people with leaflets taking you to the park location.
Tutton & Young split the exhibitors in to two separate weeks both a little jewellery heavy for my liking but probably perfect for the crowd of glossy office workers that would be popping in on their lunch break. The turn out included a couple of my favourites: Amalia’s Linescapes and Vanessa Hogge’s Wallflowers as well as lots of new faces to chat to.
I think Part 2 caught my eye more with a delicate mix of kinetic jewellery, luxury stationery and variety of ceramic wares. Wish I had more money stashed away for jewellery as there were some lovely pieces but a girl can have only so much. Variety is the spice of life after all, so keep on the look out for original ideas and truly unique design practice.
TUTTON & YOUNG the curators continue to bring a fine selection of craft practitioners to interesting locations across the city and beyond (Brighton). I always like the mindset they have when selected exhibitors but I admit the location just didn’t do it for me this time, I like original craft mixed with original architecture rather the the frosted plastic pavilion roof.
Find the next Made show in Bloomsbury 20-21 May at Mary Ward House, I’ll see you there.
