Objectspace is a public gallery dedicated to positioning craft, design and architecture within a range of cultural, economic and social frameworks.
A collaboration by Objectspace and Ponsonby Central to coincide with Art Week, ‘Objectmarket’ is a pop-up design store of New Zealand’s best makers. Featuring textiles, ceramics, furniture, jewellery and homeware, the market displayed a curated selection of craft, art and design.
Objectmarket celebrates the fine details of New Zealand design and craftsmanship and featured the following artists.
Featuring at Objectmarket are Monmouth Glass Studio who specialise in handcrafting exquisite glass objects using glass blowing techniques that date back hundreds of years.
