Linda Brothwell: The Missing

October 20, 2016 - January 2, 2017

In a new On the Table commission Linda Brothwell, a pioneer of contemporary British craft skills, will create a playground of textures and colours in stone, wood and metalwork in response to the most intricate works in the Holburne Museum’s collection. In a dramatic exploration of materials, Brothwell’s work will be displayed alongside the elaborate carved wooden, gilt bronze and hardstone plinths on which Sir William Holburne displayed his porcelain and bronzes.

Many of Holburne’s plinths were separated from their objects in the 20th century, leaving an alluring and eclectic collection of empty mounts. Brothwell will create the missing parts: wearable pieces in silver and quartz displayed on larger sculptures of boldly coloured marble, ebony and gold, forming playful vignettes of rare and precious materials.
