At the Gordon Russell Design Museum

Earlier this week I installed an exhibition at the Gordon Russell Design Museum, in Broadway. The Museum offered members of the Worcestershire Guild the opportunity to display their work within the Museum Collection, a wonderful setting for handmade craft.

Upstairs at the Gordon Russell Design Museum


The Museum:

The Gordon Russell Design Museum is housed in the Gordon Russell Company’s original design office, a thin, barn-like building tucked behind the High Street in the Cotswold village of Broadway. It’s filled with a chronological display of work from Gordon Russell himself through to later production pieces made by the company he founded.

He championed the fusion of the machine and man-made, embracing technological advances in production but conserving craft hand skills. It’s an ideology that I really appreciate as it neither dismisses modern technological advances or neglects the hand-making that I enjoy so much.

Open the drawer:

For the duration of the show my work will be housed within this 1950’s Utility Chest of Drawers, Dressing Table and Mirror. Made in English beech it was designed by David Booth for Gordon Russell Ltd. The piece was mass-produced and purchased in the early 1950 from Heals of London. It reflects Gordon Russell’s idea that good design and quality workmanship should be affordable and these pieces, and many like them, decorated many English homes from the 1950’s onward.

In the top drawer you’ll find new pieces from my Riverside collection, alongside best sellers like my Circular Leafy Pendant. Visit the exhibition from 22nd August to 17th September 2017 at the Gordon Russell Design Museum in Broadway.
