Cusp: on the edge where art meets craft.

Cusp looks at work that could sit in different places and mean different things. It explores ideas and materials on the edge where art meets craft or craft meets art. There are borders that are places where interesting things happen, and borders that divide; there are also borders that are boundaries waiting to be crossed. As we have seen over many centuries borders can move, and like words that transmute, meanings can change.

Cusp looks at work from seven Welsh makers where making, craft and concept mingle.
