Newcastle show focuses on creative processes

An exhibition of work by 16 designer-makers from the North East of England opens in Newcastle this summer.

Prospect, which opens at the Designed and Made Gallery on 9 August, will demonstrate how the items were conceived and made by exhibiting final pieces along with working drawings and models.

Work will include handmade furniture, vessels made out of smashed autoglass, jewellery made out of etching plates and a neon light installation.

Participants include glass designers Sarah Blood, Sue Woolhouse and Steven Reveley, and furniture makers Michael Armstrong and Polly Westergaard.

‘For many people, the creative process remains distant and mysterious,’ says Prospect curator Liz Ritson. ‘Prospect reveals some of these processes, and in doing so enhances the understanding and appreciation of objects and their makers.’

Prospect runs at the Designed and Made Gallery in Newcastle from 9 August to 27 September.
