Brighton Craft Fair

Yesterday Stella and I visited the Brighton Craft Fair.

I don’t think I have ever seen so much talent under one roof – beautiful, original, quirky it was all there in jewellery, ceramic and textile form.
We had a truly wonderful time drinking in this visual feast and also taking the opportunity meeting and chatting with the artists about their work – which was really, really fascinating.
I showed tremendous restraint – I did…..however I indulged myself with this exquisite Sarah Grove vase.

Yes there is button detailing

And on the rear

And last but not least....

  2. I think the mark of a wonderful piece of craft work in in the detail in areas not normally seen on display. Those dear little "feet" on the bottom are just perfect. What a lovely treasure to have.

  4. Hi Lynn, Stella mentioned you were going to the craft fair, it sounds terrific. John and I were in Brighton that day for a different reason, but I noticed the sign and thought of you both. How nice to find something you really like to bring home with you too. x
