In Tandem at The Devon Guild of Craftsmen, Bovey Tracey, Newton Abbot, September 26 – November 8 2009

The latest exhibition from the Devon Guild of Craftsman combines wood and ceramics through two makers, Blandine Anderson and Terry Sawle, who have not worked in this capacity before.

The results of their work is a series of interior pieces that challenge the traditional ideas of domestic function and design.

Both makers are North Devon-based – Sawle is known for his finely-crafted furniture from native timber, and Blandine's ceramic animal pieces are widely collected.

They began working together in 2006 and, after some difficulties in marrying the two mediums together, have managed to create some extraordinary pieces.

Anderson herself says: "This exhibition will ask: 'Is it furniture or is it sculpture?' – but why can't it be both?"
