FEBRUARY


February 4 - March 9, 2005
FUNCTION l  
FUSION
PETER CHEN and GREG METZ
This show features furniture, furnishings and accessories designed to take advantage of common manufactured materials, such as plywood, aluminum extrusions, and glass/resin sheets. The modern designs have purity and harmony, the minimal execution exemplifying the aesthetics and proportion of each material.




 APRIL
 

April 8 - May 3, 2005
"of curves and colours"
KEN GUENTER

This collection of work demonstrates techniques of bent lamination, lathe
turning, veneering and CNC router work with both colour and humour.  The
collection includes chairs, tables, benches, cabinets and lamps as well as
two sculptures that reflect the influence of the history of furniture on
Ken's designs.




May 6 - 31, 2005 
BRIAN HOYANO and ANN UUSOJA

Brian Hoyano's jewellery reflects the honesty of ancient folk aesthetics, Asian subtlety, and the machined pristineness of contemporary industrial design.  Ann Uusoja's painted silk wall hangings will explore how far she can push her creativity. The seeds are planted, but the fruit they'll bear is still unknown.  



 JUNE

June 3 - July 5, 2005 
GO BIG, GO BLUE
GARY BOLT, LISA SAMPHIRE & MORNA TUDOR

Frustrated glassblowers say, "If you can't make it good make it BIG, and if you can't make it big, make it blue." So this show will either be small red pieces or large blue ones or something else to register dismay at the current trend to demand glass which is ever more decorative (blue is best) and ever more HUGE.




 

JULY

July 8 - August 2, 2005 
RARE EARTH and COMMON GROUND
GORDON HUTCHENS

Wood fired ceramics using local clay and ash from our trees will be the metaphor and reality of "Common Ground", which is both the knowledge and experience we all share, and the actual ground we stand on. Glaze elements drawn from unusual, exotic or uncommon "Rare Earth" may also be combined with silver, bismuth or gold.




 AUGUST

August 5 - 30, 2005 
ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS
MARILYN LEE
Marilyn Lee's intent for this show is to present felted wallhangings with designs inspired by architectural details, such as cast iron grate patterns, carved doorways, arches and various salvaged pieces from times past.




 

SEPTEMBER

September 2 - October 4, 2005 
METALPHORS
GREG KAWCZYNSKI

This exhibition features Greg's work in three goups. He will be showing a selection of sterling silver rings, bracelets and chains accompanied by bird and animal miniature sculptures made of bronze and ceramic. He will also be providing sketches on paper and metal alongside wooden and handmade tools used to make his creations.





 OCTOBER

October 7 - November 1, 2005
CIRCLE CRAFT CHRISTMAS MARKET PREVIEW

NOVEMBER

November 4 - 29, 2005
HEARTS FROM MY HANDS
HERMANN EDLER

I am working on a new series of painted wood carvings for this show. Talking to friends about the idea of this series, we came up with a phrase related to the word "heart". The result should be a bridge between traditional folk art and the present.



Please Note: changes may occur in the above schedule.
