Caro­line Cleave, Rachael Os­borne and Rebecca Harvey

Cornwall Life - - FOOD & DRINK -

As if you need any ex­cuse to head to Polzeath, this month its charms are greatly em­bold­ened by The Finer De­tail at White­wa­ter Gallery.

The ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures three artists work­ing in three medi­ums: painter Caro­line Cleave, award win­ning sil­ver­smith Rachael Os­borne and ce­ram­i­cist Rebecca Harvey.

Caro­line Cleave works from her val­ley stu­dio in Port Isaac, cre­at­ing works that cel­e­brate the beau­ti­ful, yet of­ten over­looked de­tails of our coastal land­scape. Among her work you will find sub­jects as di­verse as sus­tain­able fish­ing, lob­sters, crabs, stonewalls, hedgerows and wild­flow­ers. Her work can also be seen at Nathan Out­law’s Miche­lin starred restau­rant in Port Isaac.

Rachael Os­borne makes sculp­tural table­ware at her North Corn­wall stu­dio. Work­ing on a cus­tomised pot­ter’s wheel, she throws both clay and metal to cre­ate work in­spired by the nat­u­ral forms and tex­tures of the Cor­nish coast. Ce­ram­i­cist Rebecca Harvey stud­ied at the Royal Col­lege of Art. Her in­ter­est in 18th cen­tury Creamware, Ja­panese ce­ram­ics and 1920s Enamel­ware is trans­lated in her work into a strong but sim­ple sense of these ceramic tra­di­tions. Her el­e­gant porce­lain pieces for the ta­ble con­sider both form and func­tion, and are fin­ished in soft satin glazes, while sub­tle traces of the maker’s hand are left on their glow­ing, translu­cent sur­faces.
