Gill Hackett's Amazing Papier Mâché Art

We are very privileged to have the beautiful work of artist Gill Hackett on display alongside the Aboriginal artworks at our exhibition, Aboriginal Country.

Gill is a maker of extraordinary papier mâché vessels produced in her studio in Horsley, Gloucestershire where she lives and works.

The inspiration for her work comes from both her own garden and also further afield, including from visits to places in Britain, Europe, the Far East and Australia.

For Gill, the textures and colours in nature are the starting point for creating decorative and useful pieces using a traditional process that involves recycling a particular grade of newsprint.

As well as being beautifully unique they are surprisingly diverse in size, shape, colour and texture and are often mistaken for ceramic vessels.

To see more of Gill’s wonderful work do pop into the gallery where there are many more on display.

Aboriginal Country. 5th October - 2nd November, Wed - Sat, 10:30 - 16:30.

Wetpaint Gallery, nr Stroud. GL6 8NR
