Alison Smiles | Caren Elliss

Industrial designer Caren Elliss and Ceramic artist Alison Smiles come together in the spirit of experimentation and play, to produce an exhibition of work that explores the joyful potential of the crafted/design object.

The collaborative nature of this exhibition is born from over 25 years that these two makers have shared lives together, and the contrasting
positions on design, contemporary art and craft.
