Highlighting work by eighteen Applied Art graduates the exhibition introduces those who are pushing the boundaries within craft practices whilst maintaining and developing the traditions of their craft.
Accompanying Portal are two new commissions showcasing work by jeweller Carrie Dickens and textile artist Sian O’Doherty, selected from the exhibition Look West in 2012. Commissioned by Oriel Davies this opportunity supports the development of these promising careers.
