For Heat Exchange 2 Beate and Elizabeth invited a number of new artists. 'We aim to further the notion of exchange and dialogue by fostering an atmosphere that encourages the artists to communicate more closely'. In addition to online communication, artists were invited to work together, for instance at the Kuenstlerwerkstaetten in Erfurt, Germany. These exchanges led to new ideas and fresh inspiration.

The focus is the continuing exploration of vitreous enamel as an exciting, progressive medium and the innovative opportunities it offers to the contemporary maker.
We are also delighted to be showing brooch designs by the late Pamela Rawnsley to whom the exhibition is dedicated.

Opening: Sat 12 Dec 2015, 1-3pm
