Form Function & Food

Form Function & Food was conceived in response to Northern Ireland’s Year of Food and Drink 2016. Selected works by artists and makers producing functional or abstract pieces relate to food and dining and include furniture, fine art, silverware, ceramics, textiles and bread.

The thirteen participants (a baker’s dozen) were selected from open call and bring an international line up to Lisburn. Local NI makers sit alongside works from across the UK, and from as far afield as Finland and Australia. Uniting skill and concept, the works highlight the dining table as a focus for human interaction.
