Exhibitions, My workEmily Kidson

Made London has been and gone, and what an experience it was! Thank you to everyone who came, I had so many great conversations that my voice was going by Sunday – I’m not used to talking so much! I had some great feedback on my work, from the colour, the display, the graphic style, with one visitor describing it enthusiastically as ‘structural yet natural’ which I like and may have to use in the future. A lot of people said it was very different which is a good thing to hear! I had interest from four galleries which is fantastic and I look forward to sharing the work I make for them. Many thanks to all my family and friends who came to support me, I had visitors from Somerset, Wiltshire and Sussex.

One of the best things about being at made London was being an exhibitor alongside so many (160+) others, many of whom are very established (famous?!). I had positive feedback from fellow exhibitors and this was a wonderful endorsement of what I am doing. I especially enjoyed being next to Alice Walton, Elaine Bolt and Mariko Sumioka. Here are some photos of the show:
