object at gallery/ten

gallery/ten presents launches its first object exhibition on 10 October, a mixed show of 3 dimensional work by the gallery’s designers, sculptors and ceramicists, together with guest exhibitors Bethan Gray and byKirsty.

The exhibition will focus on the gallery’s interest for design and 3 dimensional work and for displaying the handmade alongside the manufactured, with pieces spanning contemporary design to fine art.

object will include kinetic sculptures by Pembrokeshire-based Ivan Black, award winning ceramicist Natalia Dias and Royal College of Art graduate Carwyn Evans. The exhibition will also welcome guest exhibitor, furniture and product designer, and speaker at last year’s Cardiff Design Festival awards party, Bethan Gray. Cardiff-born gray is an internationally celebrated designer, both while as head of design at Habitat and since establishing her own studio in 2008. Gray has won numerous accolades including three Elle Decoration design awards and is currently nominated for Elle Decoration Best British Designer Award 2013

object also sees the launch of a new concept, ‘ten x ten’, where a limited edition product is developed between gallery/ten and a designer and sold exclusively at the gallery. The first collaboration is with Cardiff-based Kirsty Patrick, designer at bykirsty, developing Patrick’s signature product, the Scandinavian-inspired sphery lightshade. Kirsty recently showed her work at Tent London.

All work will be for sale and collectorplan is available. For further info about the gallery’s artists and designers see the website www.gallery-ten.co.uk
