Architecture and Ceramics
After getting a lovely treatment by Fiona, who runs Flee In Edder at St Margarets’ House, we both went down to visit the new exhibition in the galleries of the 3rd floor, A Potter a Painter and a Poet
I just received a new [to me] camera, so hopefully these photos do the exhibition a bit of justice, but as Fiona and I were saying, you just can’t capture the space between the works, and also the depth of texture of the pots. It really is a wonderful exhibition, over three galleries.
The first photos are of Gallery One, the largest space, covering a whole wing of the building. The ceramic work in here is textural, dark, mossy and lustred here and there with gold.
This is a cheesy sparkle effect that comes with my camera, isn’t it delightful?!
In Gallery Two the work is lighter, in colour and in feeling. Shiny pots, ethereal paintings of the pots and lovely poems to complete the feeling of being cocooned in a world of ceramic and paint.
The third gallery is the smallest, and set up like a workshop. Paul Tebble, the potter behind ALL these pots [you really have to see how much work is in the show, and the quality is staggering, I am incredibly inspired] is a ‘friend of’ our Bridge Pottery Collective and has been since we set up.
The free exhibition will be on until 30th August, and I really cannot recommend it enough.
