CAA presents Echoes of Process by Metalsmith Adi Toch, alongside a Demonstration by Ceramicist Sasha Wardell
An exhibition and masterclass showcasing metalsmith Adi Toch’s reflections on the material remnants of her metal-working process. In addition, ceramicist Sasha Wardell demonstrates slip casting and the decorating techniques involved in the creation of a complete bone china tea set.
CAA presents Echoes of Process, an unusual and exciting body of work from metalsmith Adi Toch, featuring the surprising and beautiful byproducts resulting from the making of highly finished pieces. This exhibition invites reflection on the often overlooked or discarded traces of the making process; the story of making in metal is told through what is left behind. Aspects of actions are carefully recorded through a collection of reconsidered fragments, containing remnants of objects or materials. In addition, on the Saturday morning of London Craft Week Adi delivers a masterclass for 15 people exploring themes from the display and key aspects of her practice.
CAA also spotlights Bone China – Tempting Translucency, a new body of work in a new colour palette from ceramicist Sasha Wardell, during London Craft Week. Sasha presents a long demonstration of slip casting on the Saturday afternoon, during which she casts and assembles a bone china tea set including a teapot, tea bowl and saucer, as well as utilising some decorating techniques.
On Sat 12 May, guests have the opportunity to meet glass artist Angela Thwaites and get a rare insight into her work which is pushing the boundaries of traditional processes of glass making. She discusses her current practice and research and shows visitors examples of model preparation and hand finishing, as well as her use of a 3D print pen.
Exhibition runs from Thursday 3 May – Saturday 9 June.
