Unless we nurture, support and celebrate modern British craft and design, there will be paucity of Antiques of Tomorrow for Roadshow specialists working on future series to delight upon.
The point is particularly pertinent today when most purchases intended to enhance domestic bliss are generic, globe-crushing and Made In China. High carbon, low soul.
As all right-minded observers, I applaud British craft and design and urge its practitioners towards greatness. Naturally, not everything produced today, even in Britain, is great. But with appropriate support, by the likes of craft&design as well as its patrons, the present and future of individual creative endeavour will remain loud, clear and pertinent.
