New Craftsman St Ives open their 2016 season with an exhibition of work by St Ives artist Emma Jeffryes, Jerwood Makers prize winner Adam Buick and ceramic artist Rowena Brown.

In recent years Emma Jeffryes has established herself as one of St Ives’ most distinctive and well-loved painters. Her naive paintings of the town’s unique landmarks and vistas draw on a palette of vivid ocean colours and her lively brushwork conveys the vibrant energy of this busy coastal community.

Ceramicist Adam Buick, who has shown at New Craftsman since 2010, was one of only five artists selected for the prestigious Jerwood Makers prize in 2013. His beautifully understated, Korean inspired Moon Jars are created from clays, grit and metal ores sourced directly from the land around him and focus on the individual’s subjective experience of landscape.

Rowena Brown’s hand-built ceramic houses are coloured with slips, part-glazed and either earthenware or raku fired. They have a pleasingly muted, minimal quality, suggestive perhaps of abandoned buildings, but when grouped together form their own interchangeable and visually striking community of structures.

The exhibition opens for Easter on 26th March and remains on show until 6th May 2016.
