NEXT SHOW: Pulse, Earls Court 2010
PRESS RELEASE FOR PULSE, EARLS COURT, 6-8th JUNE
Annabel Johnson is launching a new range of vessels at Pulse this summer entitled - Slugs, Snails & Puppy dog Tails.
The new range focuses on a humorous narrative to childhood and the ever debated question of growing up too quickly.
Two new brooch ranges are also being launched - All Washed Up! -a limited edition range made from pottery found on the shores of Anglesey, and What’s Up Dollface? - each unique dollface conjouring nostaligic thoughts.
A graduate of Central Saint Martin’s, Annabel’s work features a range of creative mediums combining surface, graphic design and photography with traditional ceramic qualities such as relief and own recipe glazes to produce unique and thought provoking items, which will help people remember places, people, memories and eras which are now long gone - all in a tongue in cheek kind of way.
Annabel is also showing her degree show collection ”The Chewing Gum Floors’ - a collection which caught the eye of Janice Blackburn, and was featured in her exhibition ‘small show Huge Talent’ at Sotheby’s last summer. The collections narrative uncovers her family’s memories of life in the pubs and clubs of the East End of London in the 1960s.
Having been dubbed ‘the next Grayson Perry’ Annabel’s work is not something to be missed!
