Glass vessels, large metal globes, lighting and outdoor furniture are among a series of designs on display at The Crafts Council’s Out There exhibition, which starts today. Billed as an eclectic collection of craft for the garden, the exhibition brings together ‘unusual’ sculptural and functional design for outdoor spaces. Work includes Wolfgang and Heron-designed spiral lights, the wave bench by Jim Partridge and Ruth Moilliet’s decorative metal globes (Allium pictured).
