Land(ed) is the title of a multidisciplinary exhibition which runs at the Lavit Gallery in Cork to coincide with Craft Month in the city and county. It will be guest curated by Stephen O’Connell, the founder of GLAS, a new platform for contemporary Irish craft and design due to launch later this year.

The works featured will reflect each of the craftsperson's engagement with the theme of land and landscape, showcasing materials and forms which represent a distillation of that landscape. The title for the exhibition also offers potential word-play and allows for 'land' to be considered as an action or activity, the landed object being one that is brought into existence by a human hand or one embellished with precious natural resources and found materials.

Some of the contributing names include furniture-maker Alan Meredith, basket-maker Joe Hogan, ceramists Elaine Riordan and London-based Simon Kidd, wall-hangings from
