FORTNUM & MASON-‘Teapots to Tapestries’-16 MAY-29 JULY 2011
‘A Celebration of Skills’
We are delighted to have been selected to exhibit a collection of our cameo and studio techniques in this wonderful exhibition. “Celebrating the tradition of ancient crafts that were prized by our ancestors and have stood the test of time.
The exhibition is a journey into a world where craftsmanship is king, where the experienced eye is superior to the machine & where centuries-old skills are kept alive by being practised every day. It is also a tribute to the craftsmen & women who dedicate their working lives to creating objects of outstanding beauty.
Fortnum & Mason has always championed traditional skills & the independent artisan; we actively seek out small producers who strive for the best result, with their minds focused on perfection rather than on speed or quantity.”Content by Fortnum & Mason from the official exhibition catalogue.
The exhibition is located on the first floor of the store and there will be some 20 pieces of stunning cameo that will also be available to purchase! We are delighted to inform you that Fortnum & Mason are allowing us to extend an invitation to our collectors’ club members to an exclusive Champagne & Canapés preview evening of the exhibition on Tuesday 17 May at 6.30pm.
