ZOE BRADLEY SHOWCASES PAPER SCULPTURE AT THE LAUNCH OF LONDON CRAFT WEEK AT THE V&A
Wednesday, May 6th saw the opening night of London Craft Week #LCW15 at the V&A Museum London. We were privileged to showcase two pieces of our work on the night, which was officially opened by artist Grayson Perry. A huge vase of gold & white paper sculpted flowers adorned the circular bar in the foyer of the V&A. Crafted by hand over a number of weeks in our studio, the floral display attracted favourable attention & popped up on numerous instagram & twitter feeds throughout the night!
Our second paper sculpture was a colourful display of intricately cut exotic flowers, which was originally commissioned by a client in Shanghai. Invited guests from the world’s of art, design, food & culture sipped Nyetimber sparkling wine and ate the most incredible canapés that were works of art themselves. We loved chatting to TV presenter Kirstie Allsop on her collection of paper maquettes and other guests that included Tom Dixon, Jo Malone, Mark Hix, Kit Kemp (Firmdale Hotels) and Peter Williams (founder Jack Wills).

ZOE BRADLEY SHOWCASES HANDCRAFTED PAPER ART AT V&A MUSEUM
We were very lucky to have been selected by Walpole to enter onto a 12 month mentorship programme. We’ve learnt the realties & qualities of what makes craftsmanship so important and the need to keep British craftsmanship alive and kicking. We have an undeniable rich heritage in this country for beautifully crafted work, whether its bespoke tailoring or hand made furniture, fine jewellery or glass blowing. Tomorrow sees the launch of London Craft Week #LCW15 and we will be showcasing a couple of key pieces from our paper art collection at the V&A in association with Walpole & Swiss watch makers Vacheron Constantin, who are masters in their field of watch making. It is somewhat fitting that we are showing our work at the prestigious V&A museum, as its also where the current sell out ‘Savage Beauty” exhibition is on show. It was where I began my career as an apprentice at McQueen. Where I produced several showpieces that are now on show within the exhibition.
Later this week we will be launching our first paper product at the iconic London department store Fortnum & Mason, with the support of Walpole and London Craft week. I will be in Fortnum & Mason’s on Friday 8thMay ‘Meet the Maker’ will be from 3.45pm where I will be demonstrating my paper craft. If you are in the area and want an insight into what exactly goes into creating these pieces.
