Daniella Wells, Show Director, Collect 2014, says: It's such a privilege to work with the exhibitors at Collect, who bring expertise and exceptional work from well-known makers and new talent. Working on Collect for over a decade now, it's rewarding to see the fair develop year on year, and to welcome an ever increasing variety of work from around the world. I'm particularly looking forward to seeing new work and galleries from Asia this year, and I always come away from the event learning something new."
