About Joanna Bird

Joanna Bird originally trained as a potter for three years with Michael Cardew and practiced in her own right, before setting up a contemporary ceramics gallery in 1994. Over the last thirty years she has built an international reputation in ceramics and sought out fine works which have been acquired by museums and collectors worldwide. As a leading ceramics expert, Joanna specialises also in commissions on all scales, especially installations.

Joanna represents a broad stable of ceramic and glass artists, showing their work in the company of important historic collectors’ pieces at selected London and international galleries and art fairs at her own gallery.

About Joseph Harrington

Joseph Harrington is a sculptor working in cast glass. He graduated with an MA in Ceramics and Glass from the Royal College of Art in 2006. He recently won ‘Best in Show’ at the 2017 British Glass Biennale, a gold medal at the Bavarian State Prize 2018 and has recently had he work acquired by the V&A Museum, London. Joseph has exhibited both nationally and internationally including a 2013 solo exhibition ‘Landscape Portraits’ at Bullseye gallery, Portland USA and has recently exhibited at ‘Collect’ art fair at the Saatchi Gallery, London.

About Gregory Warren Wilson

Gregory Warren Wilson, is an artist and prize-winning poet. He was selected for the British Glass Biennale in 2022, is exhibited at ‘Collect’ also in Australia and USA. Using multiple layers of hand-cut glass or tesserae, he plays with light’s spatial interaction. Sometimes inspired by poetry fragments,  his glass designs can allude to their literary origins – while others stand independently – for example ‘Venice by Night’ a series of 25 works.
