Tactility: An Exhibition by Emma Lacey Ceramics and Jack Trench Bespoke Kitchens
An exploration of tactility in design and fine craftsmanship as seen through the evolution of Emma Lacey’s Everyday tableware range and the JT Classic bespoke kitchen design by Jack Trench.
Emma Lacey and Jack Trench consider the importance of tactility in their work and how the intersection between fine craftsmanship and thoughtful design forms the common ground in their respective disciplines. This dual story is told through the evolution of Emma Lacey’s Everyday tableware range and the development of the JT Classic bespoke kitchen design by Jack Trench.
Join Emma and Jack for a demonstration, handling session and drinks reception on Saturday 11 May (booking necessary), or drop in to see the exhibition which runs from Thursday 9 – Friday 10 May.
Emma Lacey designs and makes ceramic tableware from her studio in North London. Much of her work is currently hand-thrown using a fine stoneware clay and then assembled, manipulated or finished to fully express the tactility and function of each piece. Her most recent project has taken the design features of her bestselling Everyday mug into high-end factory production.
Jack Trench creates handmade contemporary kitchens from their London-based factory and studio. As well as being committed to meticulous craftsmanship and exceptional design, a strong emphasis is placed on the qualities of tactility and resilience in their choice of working materials – far and above the mere surface application of a paint or lacquer finish.
