Desirable objects

Just a few of the fabulous things on display in ‘Objects of Desire’ at the Lady Lever Art Gallery

I’m feeling very virtuous. I am the image of restraint, a pillar of strength who has faced the ultimate temptation without losing control. Somehow I have just visited the new Objects of Desire exhibition at the Lady Lever Art Gallery without testing the limits of my credit card. I think I deserve a medal, or at least a round of applause.

This is the gallery’s first ever selling exhibition, in collaboration with Liverpool’s Bluecoat Display Centre. The ever-changing selection of beautiful ceramics, jewellery, glass, metal and textiles on display are all by leading contemporary makers from the north of England.

All the exhibits are available to purchase and take them home. So if you are looking for a Christmas present with a difference, or if you just want to treat yourself, it’s worth checking the exhibition out.

For extra festive cheer, there’s a Christmas shopping night on 6 December from 5.30-8.30pm, with carol singers and mulled wine.
