At Tokara Winery

Small Worlds

We all collect objects, not only because we like the aesthetic quality of each object but also because each reminds us of where we were when we found it, or the person who made it, or some kind of association.

Exhibition info

Viewing: Tuesday to Saturday 09h00 - after dinner
Sunday 10h00 - 16h00
Monday 09h00 - 17h00

And so each piece carries with it the story of its maker, and the story of its connection to its collector. These 'Small Worlds' become layered as the objects change hands, either through generations or between collectors.

This exhibition, Small Worlds, is a sinuous display of disparate pieces by all sorts of makers, creating further connections between them. They'll appear unconnected when you browse through them as individual pieces on our website, so we hope you will be able to get to Tokara to look at the display, read some of their stories and contribute your own response.
