‘Anima’ – Finding the Magic of Breckland | Extended until Saturday 9th October 2021

Fay Jones Solo Exhibition

An opportunity to see this wonderful show for an extra week – the exhibition has been extended until Saturday 9th October 2021.

Fay Jones is pleased to present her first solo show, in the Upstairs Gallery at designermakers21. The exhibition will be open from Thursday 9th September during gallery hours Thurs-Sat 10am to 5pm.

Breckland is a place of long mysteries and small wonders. Ignoring modern boundaries it is a strongly defined landscape that allows for deep thought and contemplation. By keen observation and many exploratory wanderings, the lands wild undercurrents become apparent.

Using the rich natural resources of this stark environment, the many notional fragments are now collected into a whole. Made in wood, bark, chalk and bone, with nods to the ways of earlier times by using experimentally cast bronze, wild plant fibres and natural dyes.”
