BRUMBY & BELL: RENDEZVOUS
A beautiful exhibition of new work by Robert Brumby and Chris Bell that combines painting, ceramics and print techniques. Brumby and Bell met in the Sixties, and for a few years worked together at the ‘Ceramic Projects’ studio in the Shambles, York. After years of working independently, widening their experience and wisdom, but remaining true to their values, they now come together again in this exhibition.

16RPM commissioned two new ceramics collections by Jo Davies (London) and Makiko Hastings (Harrogate) and these exclusive, beautiful sets of functional tableware can now be enjoyed (and bought!) in the cafe. Jo Davis has created a sumptuous white, hand thrown porcelain tea set with a gold lustre twist, whilst Makiko Hastings’ thrown stoneware is beautifully contained with an understated pureness of colour and form. Both sets are available to be enjoyed in the cafe as well as to buy.

‘Thank you so much for making our [birthday] celebration so memorable for our friends – and for us too. The menu attracted much approval and everyone enjoyed the food; the wine was excellent, the mocktail delightful. The gallery is a charming intimate space, perfect for our group of forty. Its setting under the city walls, in a beautiful garden beside one of York’s medieval guildhalls is delightful. Please thank all your also-charming and very discreet young helpers who made everything go so smoothly.’
