Adam Buick, Peter Layton & Emma Jeffryes
12th April to 17th May
An exhibition by ceramicist and Jerwood Makers nominee Adam Buick, internationally acclaimed glass artist Peter Layton and St Ives artist Emma Jeffryes.
Ceramicist Adam Buick, who has shown regularly at New Craftsman since 2010, was one of only five artists selected for the prestigious Jerwood Makers Open in 2013. With a focus on human experience of landscape, Buick’s Korean inspired porcelain Moon Jars are created from materials sourced in Cornwall.
Peter Layton is one of the world’s most respected glass artists. The founder of Bermondsey’s London Glassblowing studio, Peter’s work demonstrates a unique passion for the immediacy and spontaneity of hot glass.
The work of painter Emma Jeffryes has become synonymous with the town of St Ives. Her town and seascapes draw on a palette of dazzling ocean colours that reflect the unique light of West Cornwall.

A Celebration of the Work of Lucie Bray (1974 – 2014)
In January of this year, talented St Ives artist and Porthmeor Studios resident Lucie Bray died unexpectedly at the age of 39. An outstanding sea and landscape painter, Lucie held her first ever solo exhibition at New Craftsman Gallery St Ives in 2011 and has held regular annual shows at the gallery since that time. Lucie was working on her 2014 show before her death and this May, in collaboration with Lucie’s estate, New Craftsman will be going ahead with the exhibition as planned. Made up of both new and recent works, the event will be a celebration of Lucie’s talent and passion for the Cornish land and seascape and will include written contributions from key members of the St Ives arts community.
