Event description

Following an open call to artists and artisans, over 90 artists – including Cockpit maker Leah Jensen – were selected to participate in this exhibition that presents over 250 plates for sale, with 40% of the sale going to support two charities, David Nott Foundation and Hope and Homes for Children.

The exhibition started with a quote in Gabrielle Rifkind’s book ‘The Fog of Peace’ which starts:

“We are most likely to understand more about the smell of politics and human behaviour if we start at the kitchen table, and, according to Hans Blix, the wise ex-head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, peaceful relations between states ‘can and must be practiced both at the conference table and the kitchen table”.
