"In your new collection do not fear the unknown; look around for quirky pieces by anonymous makers. At the gallery we have a great collection of European studio pottery that all have makers' marks but are officially "unidentified" and a beautiful selection of wooden hand-carved pieces from across the globe. Unattributed artefacts are a fun way to add diversity (and mystery) to your home on a smaller budget. Think of the Surrealists and get mystically drawn to an object in a charity shop à la André Breton."
