Ceramic & Stone
March 23 @ 11:00 am - April 24 @ 5:00 pm
CERAMIC & STONE, an exhibition of sculpture by the following artists;
Sue Cresswell, Sara Parsons, Proud King, Jan Dagley, Eddy Daughton, Donna Norton, Kate Cornish
A celebration of shape, colour & form through a wide selection of 3D pieces by artists from the Somerset area.
From the bold and bright pots of Jan Dagley, to the gentle and thoughtful sculptures of Sara Parsons, alongside the more familiar work of our Core artist Sue Cresswell who is inspired by the landscapes and flora in and around Glastonbury. We hope that this collection will provide something to delight and inspire all who choose to experience it.
The exhibition will take place in our main exhibition room and will also continue out into our gallery’s garden. The exhibit will mark a reimagining of the work exhibited in the garden space ready for Spring 2023.
Ceramic artist, Kate Cornish works mainly in stoneware clay, oxides and volcanic glazes.
Her folklore-inspired, expressive totems are infused with magical properties and function as household deities – elemental spirits (AKA Genius Familiae), who preside over and guard a family or household. This is a common belief in paganism as well as in folklore across many parts of the world.
Eddie Daughton is an Indigenous Potter who’s work draws influence from traditional techniques from all over the world. His pieces reflect and respect the history of the art.
Sue calls herself as Ceramic Artist rather than a potter as her pieces are individually made, each one carefully and uniquely decorated. She uses a variety of clays including porcelain, earthenware, stoneware and black volcanic clays, she derives her inspiration from the land around her, from her childhood playing in ancient woodlands, the sea, the moon and wildflowers.
Sara Parsons has been on a voyage of discovery since going to art school as a teen. Mostly working in her preferred medium of clay she enjoys making both sculptural and functional ceramic pieces. She also experiments with other mediums, drawing, painting and sculpting and also teaches adults art and ceramics.
Donna Norton is a ceramicist who’s work is inspired by natural textures, shapes and forms. Much of her work features the human body intertwined with elements of the earth. The result is a simplistic beauty that plays gently with the sensuality of the female form.
