Lasting Impressions

An exhibition of objects that will become tomorrow’s heirlooms.

An exhibition of objects that will become tomorrow’s heirlooms. Lasting Impressions takes a closer look at how craftspeople make and the processes they use to produce an object that will last. Pieces with a timeless quality constructed from the best raw materials with integrity and ingenuity.

Craft can offer us something unique, bespoke and personal. These selected designer makers excel in their personal creative making skill and include their signature, something of themselves into every object they make. Their immense skills must be celebrated and not be overshadowed in our modern consumer driven world.

In examining the bespoke, we also explore collecting - it is a very special thing to commission an wholy new piece of jewellery or furniture, when you can discuss its attributes with it’s creator and have made exactly to fit. To understand where the materials are sourced, how it is designed, put together and finished. The exhibition considers the commissioning process and talks to collectors of contemporary Craft about why they choose to invest in contemporary talent.

Lasting Impression is curated Gregory Parsons and is produced in partnership with Ruthin Craft Centre, Wales.
