Until 31st July – The Cup and Saucer Exhibition – Where I fell in Love Gallery Shipston on Stour
Bruno Dauvin has invited potters and ceramists from around the world to send him one cup and saucer to create the biggest ever exhibition in the world. The cup and saucer must be hand-made from clay – not mass produced- and the piece does not have to functional.
So far he has on display and for sale 262 cups and saucers of all shapes, colours and sizes and from around the world.
Visitors to the exhibition can register (as well as buy) their favourite cup and saucer and the one with the highest vote will be awarded the “Where I fell in Love Gallery Best Cup and Saucer 2007 Award” and a cheque for £500.
The range of designs, styles and colours is amazing. Go and see for yourself.

The premises on the Shambles was being run by Bruno as La Blainvillaise French restaurant when Fiona Hufton walked into Bruno’s life. She was working in an art gallery nearby and walked into the restaurant. He tried to impress her with his French culinary ary and his joie de vivre. It was here that they fell in love. They decided to close the restaurant and to create somewhere where their love of art, relaxed social atmosphere and passion for creativity would flourish.
The gallery opened it’s doors on Sunday 24th October 2004.
