Nottingham Lace - contemporary works inspired by Nottingham Lace shown alongside examples of traditional machine-made Nottingham lace at Nottingham Castle.
Joy Buttress - Worn, 2012
In this installation she uses lace motifs embroidered onto vintage women's undergarments. These are mainly suspended above head-height to encourage the viewer to look within rather than just at the exterior surface.
Nicola Donovan - Still, 2012.
Lace machine parts suspended in time and motion by a criss-crossing of threads that mingle with the shadows to form a 3D lacework echoing the mysteries of this lost industry.
Timorous Beasties - Devil Damask lace
It costs £75 per metre from www.timorousbeasties.com I'm very tempted by their 'Spring Blossom', 'Bamboo' and 'Silver Birch' lace all of which would fit in well with the bamboo that grows outside my window.
One of the traditional pieces on display is the magnificent Battle of Britain panel from the Castle's collection.
Overall a show well worth travelling to see.
