Jerwood Makers Open is an exhibition of new commissions by five emerging makers working at the forefront of applied art will open at Jerwood Space in London. Jerwood Makers Open will bring together new works created by Nao Matsunaga, James Rigler, William Shannon, Louis Thompson and Silvia Weidenbach. Leading with their imaginations rather than responding to a set brief, these makers will create ambitious new works in ceramics, design, glass, jewellery and mixed materials and will play with both scale and their chosen materials. Each maker has been awarded £7,500 to create these works. The exhibition will open at JVA at Jerwood Space, London, from 11 July to 26 August 2012, before touring in the UK.
