Rachel Butlin Selected for Hothouse
The Crafts Council has selected 35 maker businesses to take part in the six month Hothouse programme, delivered in partnership across the UK. For 2017 makers cover a broad range of disciplines including nine jewellers, six ceramists, six textile makers, three glass makers, and five furniture makers. Hothouse has partners with a range of specialist gallery spaces, studio spaces and universities. BSOE member, Rachel Butlin makes up one of the nine jewelers selected and states that she draws inspiration from Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement. Rachel uses a variety of techniques from enamelling to creating settings, to combine non traditional materials harmoniously together. See more of her work here.
