The Cold Press started as intaglio printmaking studio in North Norfolk ” to provide artists with time and space to explore the medium” . To provide a further platform for independent artists the company launched The Cold Store, a gallery in Norwich that represents the studio’s own work and select artists. Here’s a selection of the work we look forward to seeing at Tent London.
We love the simplicity of Billy Lloyd’s hand thrown ceramics that belie the hard work that went into creating them, something that’s also true for the mirrors by MC & CO from Brooklyn.
We also love the softness of lines and colors in Derek Wilson’s porcelain mugs (left) and in Jo Davda’s bowls of which she says the colors are very English in that the are inspired by grey skies and the sea of the British coast and countryside.
Two more wonderful collections at The Cold Store comes from Japan. Ceramics are gently crafted by the hands of Kaori Tatebayashi and the delicate wood coasters are made by Takahashi Kougei.
Finally there’s the work of Tim Willey who crafts his wood sculpture only from woods that are sustainably harvested from his mixed woodlands in North Norfolk and the slightly alarming etchings of Birna Matthiasdottir from Reykjavik.
This carefully curated gallery is a must see at Tent London.
