SIT is curating a short series of focus exhibitions of lead artist’s work called ‘Makers in Focus’ in the new gallery ‘Guild at 51’ based in Cheltenham.  We open in November with work from Joseph Hartley winner of the prestigious Business Design Centre New Designer of the Year Award




Joseph designs and makes thoroughly usable objects from the simplest materials, using simple techniques. The results are objects that are pure and honest which feature virtually no decoration or surface treatment.   His products are playful and are intended to be used and and enjoyed a lot.
