Donya Coward

Nottingham based artist Donya Coward takes taxidermy to another level. Using her hands and reclaimed materials she creates the most wonderful creatures. 

Donya is showing her new collection 'Should it be' at Curiosity a pop up shop in the heart of London, during London Design Festival.

Curiosity is the brain child of Catherine Hammerton, like a magpie she has collected  lots of interesting established and some shiny new British based creatives and brought them under one roof for this one off pop up shop. 

Tomorrow morning she ventures to Surrey's worst kept secret, Kempton Antiques Market to gather treasures to fit out Curiosity. 

I think this is going to be one very interesting magpie nest and one needs to be quick to grab a piece of the action.

Curiosity 18th-28th Sept. 97-99 Clerkenwell Rd, London WC1
