Phoebe Cummings – London Craft Week – 30th September to 10th October 2020
For the opening of the JET & CO showroom in Autumn 2019, Phoebe Cummings created a wonderful performance in unfired clay entitled ‘Betray us into Delight’. The story of its creation and dismantling was perfectly timed for the original 2020 Craft Week dates. As things turned out, it actually proved more permanent than many things and survived lockdown surprisingly well, being eventually dismantled in July 2020.
As soon as travel restrictions eased, Phoebe returned to 20A Pimlico Road and the following pictures record the dismantling. Some favourite flowerheads have been left with us and Phoebe will be with us on Tuesday 6th October to discuss this work and her work in general and update Craft week visitors on what will be regenerated from the inspiring memory of this wonderful presence in our window.
We will do our best to accommodate all visitors, but numbers will be restricted, so please contact us to register interest and make a priority booking for a specific time to meet up with Phoebe.
Days to make, 1 hour to dismantle

See @phoebecummngs instagram images as she records the dismantling and the clay goes into the bath to be reborn and we are already working with Phoebe to commission a new creation drawing inspiration from this performance in unfired clay, which graced our window with such joy from October to June.
