FORM GALLERY SAYS: We have had a beautiful sunny stretch well into March, which was fitting to welcome in the works of Peter and Julie Collis for their exhibition, "Collusion".
We were graced with Peter's presence -- albeit briefly -- for the opening on the 4th of March, which was a brilliant way to start the exhibition. The show runs until the 25th, with Peter's "Fritaware" pieces proving extremely popular.
Peter has used a combination of glass and clay together to produce the Frita Coral Baskets in a free form manner, and a small series of espresso cups and mugs which are cast also from this beautiful material. The glass content lends a beautiful translucency to the works, which can only be fully appreciated in the flesh -- these need to be seen up close! Read more...
