Hand to Hand

Honouring North Devon’s glove workers

11 June – 30 July 2016

An innovative exhibition valuing North Devon’s rich glove making heritage, a world centre in the 19th and early 20th Century, now in danger of being forgotten with closure of local factories.

Sue’s strong ceramic forms combine stitch-like mark-making, leather-like surface qualities and colours developed from local earth pigments, inspired by historical records from the former Pilton Glove Factory and the machinery and equipment of the period.

We would like to thank The Old Glove Factory Development Ltd, Mazzard Investments Limited and the below organisations for their support.
