Description

In celebration of Northern Ireland’s rich craft landscape, past and present, five makers were invited to produce new work in response to heritage footage from Northern Ireland Screen’s Digital Film Archive.

After 25 years in South East England, Sharon Adams recently returned to Northern Ireland and now works from her rural home and studio in County Antrim, using traditional craft skills to make one-off sculptural pieces and small editions. 

Her practice explores the theme of work and tools. Using wood, metal and textiles, she makes functionless tools which invite the viewer to imagine what they might be for and comments on the value of skilled making.

Notes

Exhibited at Real To Reel 2017 - The Craft Film Festival
