Deviants at Hove Museum

Hello - Richard Slee

at Hove Museum and Art Gallery is an exhibition of 16 objects from the Craft Council's collection which Deviate wildly from what is perceived as craft. The work is by ten of the UK’s leading craft makers, including Jill Crowley, Carol McNicoll, Richard Slee and Hans Stofer.

Hand of Good, Hand of God - Freddie Robbins

The ‘deviant’ artists featured make objects that depart from the norm and challenge the imagination. They include teapots with multiple legs, an unfurling jug and a glove with 25 fingers.

Bud - Felicity Aylieff

All the makers are highly skilled in the age old techniques of their particular craft, yet these skills are used to produce different and unusual objects.

Coffee Set with Tray - Carol McNicoll

There is a programme of courses for adults and children to accompany the exhibition with great makers (Penny Green, Matt Smith, Maria Rivans, Carol McNicoll) - course titles include "Wonky Teapots", "Quirky bags", "Potty Digressions", Bizarre Baskets"
