We have a Life's a Bench! exhibition during Schmuck at Renate Scholz Artelier in Munich and a four of us have been selected for Talente. You can also see work from another four of us at FLUX in Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery until the end of February, where you can also see the group's contribution to Taking Time:Craft and the Slow Revolution.
