A couple of weeks ago we exhibited at Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair in Manchester, our first ever show as Laverick & Son with our lighting on display. What a fantastic show we had, we can’t thank everyone enough for all the lovely complements and all of you who took our lights home with you.
It was a great learning experience for us being able to display our lights for the first time properly and seeing what worked well and what didn’t. Overall, we were very pleased with how our display looked when we had finally set up, what started out as a sketch on a scrap piece of paper eventually became reality, but there is always room for improvement in my eyes, I’m a bit of a perfectionist like that I guess.
The show was also a great way to get valuable feedback on some of our new unseen designs, some one offs and some repeatable. We had a selection of lamps cast in porcelain and overlaid with grey and black underglazes with areas masked off which allowed the light to pass through. These lamps proved very popular with the people of Manchester and we sold out of those designs by the end of the show.
