Grantpirrie - Michael Zavros











With Jimmy covering another show, it was my first visit to the sleek and stylish Grantpirrie Gallery...Almost like walking into a high fashion house...

When I worked for Giorgio Armani back in the 90's I fell in love with the high quality of craftsmanship and seriously appreciate the time it takes to create an object of desire and beauty.
It's not fashion, it's Art!!!

When you fall in love with it you will go to great lengths to acquire it, because you know it will last forever...and it will make you happy...I fell in love with Michael Zavros work when I saw it many moons ago at the Mori Gallery, back then I could have afforded it...

And not to forget the window has some lovely work by Susan Hipgrave, botanical drawings on porcelain and it's nice to see works by Lionel Bawden among others in the back room...
