This week I've been planning the road trip to collect from far and wide. Thankfully some lovely makers are bringing their wares to us, although the trek couldn't take much more in. I'm off to Nottingham, Leicester, London, Canterbury, Lewes, Farnham, Mere, Devon/Cornwall border. Two other trips are happening too, the Lake District and Lincoln!
Meanwhile our set designers are hard at work making something very special for the stand. We are delighted with their vision and hope you will be too.
Earlier this year Laura and her family came to stay with us whilst she conducted a series of studies of the North York Moors. We were lucky with the weather and the heathers were in full bloom so expect some pink and purples amongst her normal colour palette.
Lewes is a hive of artist talent so it's perfect that we will launch Tanya Gomez's amazing brightly coloured vessels. Big and bold is coming to Harrogate.
It's been a whirlwind two years for Norman with work in all four Tates and now at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. We have had his porcelain and stoneware forms for the last year and are delighted to be bringing a batch of new work to Harrogate.
As Helen's main dealer in the North of England she was always a shoe in for a place on the stand. We have a variety of big to small pieces in bronze or stone resin. Helen has a stand at the Chelsea Flower Show most years so we are delighted to have some of her very best work for Harrogate.
Former jeweller turned sculptor, Michelle's creations are real show stoppers. We have no idea what is coming but with Michelle you are assured of a truly memorable piece finished with the exquisite detailing to the very highest standard.
We do look forward to seeing you on our stands A1 and A2 to the left of the entrance.
