PAD Art + Design Fair at London

PAD was buzzing today, its 10th outing in London, with exhibitors saying today’s crowd was even better than its preview on the 3rd, with people queuing to buy the £25 ticket.  It is, and has always been, beautifully presented, attracting an elegant international visitor not always seen at other similar events.  It is the right size to be able to ‘go back’ to see the pieces that caught your eye the first go-round, of which there are many. Some that caught my eye were:

  The Shelf – by Joseph Walsh from Ireland, Euros 36,000 + VAT (also his two granite stools) - on Stand A6 – Sarah Myrescough, exhibiting at PAD for the first time.
