Last Chance - Spectacular Craft at V&A


This joint V&A and Crafts Council exhibition Spectacular Craft is ending on 17th February so this weekend is the last chance. I came across it by accident whilst Collect was on, but it is worth a trip.

The small exhibition features installations by 8 artists


working meticulously but on a huge scale. I was particularly impressed by Lu Shengzong's huge papercuts. The 8 artists are working with wire, glass, wallpaper, paper, wood, lace, video amongst other things to present impressive and thoughtful installations.
This Dale Chihuly chandelier wasn't in the exhibition, just above the information desk but looked pretty impressive non-the-less. Also see this website for more of Dale's work

I was invited to attend the opening of the Chihuly at The V&A after making this website for the exhibition:

BTW, I think your tag should read 'Dale Chihuly' :)
