Artist Open House: The BouSham Eco Gallery

03 / 05 / 19

The Artist Open Houses offer festival–goers the chance to meet the artists and to view locally made, seriously good arts and crafts. This year, Dukes Lane's pop-up shop will be an Artist Open House hub hosted by the popular BouSham Gallery.

BouSham Gallery

The BouSham show has been curated with a strong emphasis on sustainability as a response to the environmental impact of industrially manufactured products.

BouSham has gathered 12 ethically minded artists for this show whose work reflects our ecological ideal, coming back to the ethos of traditional craftsmanship and materials. In addition to those mentioned, the show also includes hand formed ceramics, thrown vessels and sculpted terracotta characters. Embroidered and hand printed textile accessories along side fine art paintings, prints and cards.

The work is carefully curated within the space and combined with furniture, plants, props and lighting to build our signature aesthetic. BouSham invite our visitors to explore and enjoy this colourful and inspiring environment.


Meet the makers behind BouSham 

Clair (Bou) creates exquisite contemporary jewellery from myriad materials collected from her world travels. Reconstructing and bringing back to life vintage pieces, she combines these with Brazilian semi-precious stones, Amazonian seeds and hand cast silver and brass to form unique and exceptional pieces.

Shyama (Sham) paints nature inspired, bold, vibrant, original artworks. Utilising as a resource, the paper pallets that would normally be scrapped. She cuts and configures them into intricate layered collages. To create the finished piece she reuses vintage boxes and frames sourced from auctions and markets

Ocean Sole produce colourful animal sculptures, skilfully carved from discarded flip-flops collected from the East African cost. This social enterprise is responsible for clearing up the beaches and the sea, also providing employment and livelyhoods for 92 people and contributes 10% of the revenue to marine conservation programmes.

Cocoon&me works with natural high quality and sustainably sourced materials using artisanal techniques such as crochet, knitting and macramé to produce a textured range of contemporary and beautiful interior accessories.

You can find the BouSham Gallery at 11 Dukes Lane from 4th May – 2nd June.
