Preview evening at the pop up gallery.

Apologies for a lack of updates on my blog of late – I’ve just returned from holiday and have been greeted with a mountain of orders to get through. I guess I’ll have a break at Christmas, but for now it’s looking rather hectic! The pop up gallery in Keswick opened over a week ago and started with a preview on the Friday evening. I went along to take a look and discovered some very nice things indeed…

Here’s one of Luke’s pieces. It’s a wine storage system, which is made of separate layers – you can tailor its size to suit the number of bottles you have. It’s beautifully made and constructed from elm and walnut…

Two coffee tables which join together and make one. Constructed from natural edge oak and very nice indeed…

There were many beautiful things on display, including these ceramic mugs by Christine Cox…

I wonder who made this bowl…

It got quite busy towards the end and I seemed to get in the way with the camera! However, the spread of crafts was impressive and well worth a look for all Christmas shoppers.
