North Lands Creative at Collect 2020 will celebrate the outstanding British and International creativity in glass.
All the exhibiting artists have a connection to our Alastair Pilkington Studio and the work has been inspired by their immersive time on our artist in residence programme or as a collaborative process with our associate artist projects. Our 2020 Collect artists are Emma Baker (UK), Alberto Lago (Italy), James Maskrey (UK), Alexandra Mureșan (Romania), Laura Quinn (Ireland) and Martin Janecký (Czech).
North Lands Creative at Collect 2020 is supported by Creative Scotland and includes the Origin project collaboration sponsored by Salviati, Scuola Del Vetro Abate Zanetti and British Council Scotland.
Authenticity is at the heart of our work. Centred around a core belief in conservation, education and sustainability of the art form. North Lands Creative has an outstanding reputation for facilitating individual and corporate commissions of contemporary art, design and craft pieces and offers an immersive special experience for collectors.
Our commissioning service and the work for sale in our gallery reflects a global trend, with increasingly discerning collectors searching out objects of beauty and substance against a flowering of craftsmanship worldwide. We bridge iconic heritage and contemporary design as well as supporting independent artists to tell their stories.
North Lands Creative returns to Collect, the International art fair for modern craft and design, from Thursday 27 February – Sunday 1 March 2020.
For 2020, Collect is moving to an iconic new home in the heart of London, Somerset House. Organised by the Crafts Council, Collect welcomes over 14,000 visitors including international galleries, artists and collectors. Visitors can experience an insightful programme of events, tours and free talks.
