Dinnerware: A Study in Design

Winston Churchill spoke of architecture – ‘We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us’. The sophisticated interdependence of design elements required to create an aesthetically pleasing set of functional pieces are often completely ignored by the user because of the commonplace nature of the object. This exhibition looks at how function and aesthetics drive some of the most everyday objects that surround us. Works included in this exhibition are by Harlan House, Shane Norrie, Judi, Dyelle, Goyer-Bonneau, Peter Jensen and others.
