Dubai, 2012: This was an event that I was raring to go. A great get to gether of some of the best Dubai based artisans, hand picked by Murano glass jewelry designer-maker Sue Tyson. The launch of the Present Perfect! was a great way to see things come together. In the words of Sue Tyson, the mission of Present Perfect! is, “To offer a visual platform for definitive, fine quality, locally designed, handcrafted Artisan Products which are truely appreciated & cherished by the Receiver. To raise awareness of genuinely unique, relevant Artisan creations which stand out and beyond the everyday humdrum pastiche of consumables in Dubai. To avoid plagiarism, predictability & deja-vu production. Seasonal Events showcasing carefully selected Artisans’ work whilst supporting a local UAE based charitable organisation – calendar to be announced – please contact above for schedule.”
