Jerwood Makers Open 2014 opens at Jerwood Space, London from 11 June to 31 August. The exhibition features new works by; Ceramicists Hitomi Hosono and Matthew Raw, artists Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen, glass artist Shelley James and spatial storytellers FleaFollyArchitects, who have each been awarded a commission of £7,500, affording them a unique opportunity to freely develop new ideas central to their individual practices.
Jerwood Makers Open is a major initiative in the Jerwood Visual Arts programme and recognises rising stars in the world of applied arts. It offers crucial support in the early stages of their careers, enabling the selected artists to develop their creative ideas independently of specific commissioning structures.
The artists were selected by an independent panel comprising foremost figures in the creative world, Vicky Richardson, Director of Architecture, Design and Fashion at the British Council; Junko Mori, artist and silversmith and Claire Catterall, Director of Exhibitions and Learning at Somerset House.
