Renowned for its finely curated collections, the gallery boldly mixes contemporary design with exquisite tribal art and rare artefacts.

Leading ceramicists are represented along with textiles, sculpture, jewellery, accessories and woodcarving. Every piece is handmade, chosen with an unerring eye and beautifully displayed.

“That intimate and irregular quality of things made entirely by the human hand.”
