Sara Preisler Gallery Presents: ‘If You Go Down to the Woods Today’

This exhibition runs 26th July – 26th September @ Sara Preisler Gallery, The Custard Factory

Foraged and Forged
Made in Sara’s very own studio, these striking pieces have defined ‘fold formed’ components, a hands-on process by which each piece is completely hammered by hand.

Inspired by the natural world, particularly the luscious canopy of leaves found in the British countryside, this collection has a real feeling of heritage. This is a unique collection, available for a limited time only!

Amanda Cobbett
From her country studio, Amanda creates sculptures based on life outside her back door using a mixture of papier mache, wire, found objects, antique and upcycled fabrics.

Amanda’s sculptures of garden birds are life-size and accentuate the colour and the intricacies of their feathers by using torn silks and lace.

She also makes jewel-like flowers out of wire, antique buttons and jewellery findings on a wooden base.

Elizabeth Terzza
Inspired by the great outdoors, each piece of Elizabeth Terzza’s jewellery is designed and individually hand crafted in her studio.

She surrounds herself with botanical treasures found while walking through woodlands and forests.

She is forever collecting and taking note of her rural surroundings, exploring, designing and creating her charming pieces.

Emma Williams
Emma makes decorative ceramics in her Nottingham studio using a variety of clays and techniques.

After an initial firing, Emma applies metal oxides to the white earthenware pieces to achieve a speckly effect, she then dips, pours and brushes on a variety of glazes, including vibrant matt turquoise and purple barium in order to create her signature, mosaic-like finish.
