In addition to our ongoing retail selection, the Gardiner Shop hosts exhibitions featuring the work of top local artists and designers.

Chiho Tokita: Ikebana Abstracting
March – May, 2017
Merging the container and the contained, where the flower and the vase are fused together as a single entity, ikebana abstracting re-interprets the Japanese art of flower arrangement as a sculptural collage.

Scott Barnim: Alchemy, Silver & Copper
May 2017
Scott Barnim’s work in Persian reduced pigment lustre uses silver and copper in their salt forms. For thousands of years, this was the only way to create a lustrous metal finish on ceramics. Scott is one of only a handful of makers in the western world working in this technique.
