We're excited about Solo Kojima! Jerwood Makers Open success and the Cloud Leopard returns to London...

The incredible Cloud Leopard by Craft Central designers Solo Kojima has been on quite a journey since it wowed the Collect crowds at the Saatchi gallery last May! As part of a European touring exhibition in partnership with Arte&Arte’s Miniartextil, it is currently hanging in Le Beffroi, Paris (a sneaky peek below!).

We are delighted to announce that the stunning paper cut piece will return to it's Clerkenwell home in May 2013. Set to hang in the Craft Central Gallery, it will coincide with a busy time in the London design calendar spanning Crafts Council's Collect, Made in Clerkenwell: Open Studios at Craft Central and Clerkenwell Design Week.

As if this wasn't enough Solo Kojima excitement for us at CC!... Nahoko Kojima has recently won the prestigious Contemporary Art Award, the Jerwood Makers Open 2013. For this she will unveil a new piece depicting a life size swimming Polar Bear, hand cut using only one sheet of white Japanese Washi Paper and suspended as a free hanging sculpture.

Meet Shari and Nahoko in their Craft Central studio at Made in Clerkenwell this May.
