    Jeffry Mitchell, Golden Owl Tree, 2019
    Porcelain with bright gold gilding
    38 x 28 x 26 cm.
    Price:£9,000 (plus any applicable taxes)
     
    Jeffry Mitchell’s primary medium is ceramic. He takes a very direct approach to working, often eschewing refinements that commonly accompany many ceramic processes. The resulting pieces radiate an exuberant, unbridled immediacy. He feels that this unfettered approach is essentially relatable to our shared human experience. To explain this idea Mitchell talks about a fundamental familiarity with clay that we all carry with us from our formative years. The imagery that he uses is also very accessible. Bears, elefants (he prefers ‘f’ to ‘ph’), bunnies and flowers appear over and over in his work and though they can be definitely be related to his own personal story he feels that these too spring from an early and universally familiar place.
     
    Notable solo exhibitions of Mitchell’s work include: Like a Valentine: The Art of Jeffry Mitchell, 2012- 2013, Henry Art Gallery; Some Things and Their Shadows, 2009, Kittredge Gallery, University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA; Shiny Happy Pretty (with Tina Hoggatt), 2008, Missoula Art Museum; Hanabuki, 2001, Henry Art Gallery; My Spirit, 1992, New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; and Documents Northwest: The Poncho Series, 1990, Seattle Art Museum.

    Emma Witter, Stem, 2019
    Bones, Copper wire
    31 x 19 x 6.5 cm.
    Price:£ 2,000 (plus any applicable taxes)

    Emma Witter utilises intricate bone structures to create fragile, flower-patterned forms. To her, this organic material conveys beauty and spirituality rather than mortality. These opposing facets inspire Witter to bring to the surface the relics of domestic animals. She acts as a bone collector who salvages her medium from restaurants, butchers and her own cooking waste along with combing the river Thames.
    Interested in the history of this hard, whitish skeletal tissue and its past use, Witter states: 'the material reveals much more and dictates the works'. She does not sketch her ideas onto paper, she works with her hands, engaging in small three-dimensional experiments, testing how the individual segments assemble and embrace each other. Her method is visceral, envisaging her finished effigies.
    Witter earned her diploma in Art and Design from The London College of Fashion. In 2012, she received a first-class honours degree in Performance Design and Practice from Central Saint Martins. On graduating, Witter won the 'Seed Fund Award' from the University of the Arts London - a grant to set up her own studio practice.
    Witter has participated in numerous exhibitions, most notably her solo show 'Bloom' at Hix Art 2018, an exhibition resulting from her three-month residency at Hix's Tramshed restaurant. She was selected twice for the ING Discerning Eye show at The Mall Galleries 2017, and The London Group Open at The Cello Factory in 2015 and 2017. Emma has just finished her year as a studio resident at Sarabande, the Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation, in London where she ended with a ground-breaking exhibition 'Remember you must die'.
