AN EXHIBITION of ceramics, prints, leather and metal is set to take place at The Gallery at Ventnor Botanic Garden.

Jane Cox, local Binnel Studios artist, specialises in vibrant ceramics combining elegant shapes with rich translucent glazes.

Her new classic black and white designs, commissioned by The British Library for their exhibition on Sacred Texts, will be on show, together with emerald blues, greens, turquoises and speckle glazes inspired by the Island shoreline.

For 25 years Jane has been researching and developing earthenware glazes, creating a glaze palette unique to her work.

Sue Lowday works primarily with eco vegetable tanned leathers, and for 30 years has explored the unique properties of moulding and shaping leather and developing unique dye techniques.

Her work on show encompasses sculptural formed bags that can be found in museum collections, and ethereal metal sculptures inspired by rock formations.

Sue also designs and makes practical everyday items like belts, bags, key rings and purses.

She is currently completing a major commission for the Bishop of Stepney. Three makers from the Sussex Guild of Craftsmen were approached to collaborate on a special crozier, and Sue is making an embossed leather case for it.

The exhibition is free to enter, with free parking.

It takes place today (Friday), tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday, from 10.30am to 5pm each day.

Covid restrictions apply and there will be a one-way flow.
