Ffion and Steven Blench, a husband and wife team from Aberdour, are showcasing their own twist on traditional and decorative plasterwork at Fire Station Creative. Visitors to the gallery will be treated to a superb modern treatment of the ancient craft. The couple, who’s company name is Chalk, have previously worked on prestigious restoration projects such as Stirling Castle, The Assembly Rooms and Blair Atholl Castle.
For this special exhibition, however, they will be displaying the full range of their plastering talents showing how ancient patterns and designs can be brought back to life for the modern interior. These entirely new plaster works prove that the couple’s innovative power is as much a feature of their success as their fine craftsmanship.
“Ffion and Steven are in a special category, for me. Although they’re both very modest people, they are, without doubt, among the most talented artists we’ve shown here. Their work stands out by a country mile and you find yourself wanting to own every piece.” says gallery curator, Ian Moir
To make the exhibition a more educational experience and place it in a wider context, Chalk have decided to exhibit their work alongside pieces by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, George Bankart and Thomas Clayton.
The exhibition will be open to the public from 2 September to 2 October. Wed/Thursday: 10am – 5pm, Fri/Sat: 10am – 10pm, Sun: 11am -4pm, Mon/Tues: closed.
This show is the first event of Blueprint.
