A tiny gallery on Shoreditch’s trendy Rivington Street, SDC exhibits and sells craft-based works by a impressive selection of designers.  Varying between permanent collections and pieces available for purchase, the gallery seeks to promote designers who specialise in hand-made, unique pieces.  The current exhibition, Genesis, which runs until the 24th December, follows this premise.  Each designer is showing only a handful of items, but their selections display the skill and commitment they put into their craft.  Highlights include Stuart Ackroyd’s flamboyant glass bowls in bright swirling colours, and Susan Horth’s delicate birds, dragonflies and butterflies constructed from wire and tiny jewels.  Julie Pettit’s crockery adds a quirky element with her tea cups with biscuit handles, and Delfina Emmanuel’s tiny detailed cups and decorated spoons epitomises the theme of high craftsmanship propounded by SCD.  Considering the level of work that has clearly gone into each piece, the prices are very reasonable and this is a gallery to watch for new designers and a little piece of art to take home.
