Joachim Brohm, Vernacular and Modern, at Grimaldi Gavin, London

For the penultimate Dispatch of 2014 I am back in the West End of London at the Grimaldi Gavin gallery on Albermarle Street. This is a gallery with no shop front, so you have got to know it is there, but counterintuitively, once you descend to the lower ground floor you find a gracefully proportioned suite of rooms flooded with natural light from a glass atrium roof. It’s a pleasure just to discover this unexpectedly delightful space in a street you thought you knew so well.

Julian Stair, Quotidian, at Corvi Mora, London

I should declare my hand from the outset here: I have, until very recently, been a life-long craft-denier. I am in a process of rehabilitation, and must thank a number of patient individuals, who know who they are, for gently easing me out of this state of profound ignorance. I am therefore probably the least qualified person imaginable to address the most recent exhibition of work by the very distinguished ceramicist, and academic, Julian Stair. But I will plough on, with all the zeal of a recent convert.
