On The Other Hand – Summer Showcase


On The Other Hand is a summer show of new textile wall pieces and works on paper, alongside ceramics from Ken Eardley and jewellery from Rachel Darbourne.

Our usual limited edition collections of  handmade light shades, small accessories + vintage lamps and turned wooden bases from Nick Hammond, also available – so it would be lovely to see you in Margate soon!

This summer is the 6th anniversary of my studio & shop opening in Margate Old Town. From starting as Blackbird downstairs in the shop in the summer of 2010, the space and work has continued to evolve. Early this year I set out to re-examine my practice as an artist/maker – to pause for a short while to consider the journey. From my early fine art training as a painter, through working as a designer, doing a PGCE, teaching and raising a family. Then two intense years at the RCA, and shortly afterwards leaving London for the coast. And now to building and sustaining a contemporary practice based in Margate, since 2008.

This new work is in many ways a returning to earlier times and places, as well as the start of bringing these experiences and skills together.

  1. Dear Maxine – I first saw your work at the mid-century modern show at Dulwich College a couple of years ago. I loved everything you were showing, and picked up your card which is on my wall. My daughter and I are both graphic designers, and we would love to come to Margate and see your shop, and buy some things. Please could you give us some idea of when the shop is open over the next few weeks? Thank you.
