Artisans of Gyeongsangbuk-do exhibit in Mayfair

Moon Jar and red copper underglaze vase

I apologise to the ceramists and textiles artists of North Gyeongsang Province for going to their exhibition armed only with my mobile phone. And unfortunately there aren’t any press materials with images of the high quality work on show.

From the above photo you can just about tell that the vase in the front has a red underglaze, but unfortunately you have to see the thing in person to see the richness of the colour.

In the thumbnails below there’s a small vase with a beautiful mountain design, and a large silk wall-hanging. The whole gallery is flooded with light and my little mobile phone cannot convey the sense of space and colour which abounds.

I’ll edit this post with more information when I have time, but I wanted to get this inadequate version up on the web right now to encourage you to go along to ArtSpace Galleries, 18 Maddox Street, near Oxford Circus. The exhibition started yesterday and closes tomorrow. So go now. Entry free.
