British designer Paul Cocksedge’s fourth solo show with Friedman Benda entitled Performance, explores the processes of craft with three bodies of work that capture and express their theatricality in material form: Performance, Push and Excavation. Examining the relationship between maker and audience, and the idea of the outsider watching the craftsperson at work, each series is a vehicle for storytelling, drawing inspiration from and abstracting the physical process of making.

Performance follows the centuries-old technique of glassblowing. For this series, Cocksedge synthesized the finished blown glass objects and the tools and materials used in this process to create his final works.
