It’s just under a week until Lustre opens its doors at Lakeside Arts in Nottingham. One of the premier contemporary craft markets in the UK calendar, Lustre attracts a diverse audience from far and wide, and is the perfect location for some early Christmas shopping.
Love Chic Living is proud to be the official Lustre blog, showcasing the run up to the event, and reporting on the event itself next weekend. I’ve already posted on the selection process, the featured Young Meteor Graduate designers, and a spotlight on a local maker which help provide a background to this illustrious event. Today’s article is looking at this stunning commission now being featured at the Djanogly Art Gallery at Lakeside.
I went to see the installation the day after it had been hung, and was immediately struck by its incredible form and impact.
Suspended high above the Art Gallery Cafe, it is a true spectacle. Ice Form is inspired by frozen waterfalls and icicle formations.
Designed by artist Andy Singleton, the paper sculpture has been commissioned specifically for Lustre 2014 and provides a dazzling spectacle for the event.
Andy Singleton is a paper artist and illustrator, based in Wakefield, England. Graduating in 2006, his work is an exploration of the natural and manmade world through intricate paper cuttings, paper sculpture and hand drawn illustrations.
Lakeside Arts commissioned the sculpture and created this short film, depicting the creation process.
Lustre takes place on 15th and 16th November at Lakeside Arts, 10am-5pm, and costs just £5 to enter all weekend.
A full list of designers and exhibitors is available on the Lakeside website.
