Five new commissions by early-career artists and makers Anna Berry, Cecilia Charlton, Jahday Ford, Vicky Higginson and Francisca Onumah & Helena Russell, brought about through the biennial Jerwood Art Fund Makers Open (formerly Jerwood Makers Open).

Showcasing a broad range of material disciplines, including glass, textiles, digital modelling, silversmithing and sculptural installation, the five commissions provide a snapshot of some of the most exciting new work being produced by UK-based artists and makers.
