Award-winning artist, Ashraf Hanna works with the vessel to explore relations between profile, line, and space. Using a process of handbuilding, and working with colour and texture, Hanna examines the juxtaposition of sharp lines and soft curves. Lines in Motion brings together a collection of new work with an emphasis on the bowl-form.
“I have been enjoying exploring a new series of undulating bowls both in form and colour within the aesthetics of my work, minimalist clean lines that evolve and draw the eye to follow the movement in these exploratory shapes. There are new designs and colour combinations in my Cut and Altered series where I aspire to examine changing design dynamics through limited but carefully considered cuts and interventions. I also develop my interest in scale and how it influences our relationship with objects, there will be some of the largest vessels have I made on show as well as some of the smallest!” Ashraf Hanna 2021
Based in Germany, Martin is an internationally acclaimed artist, with award winning pieces in museums and galleries all over the world.
For this new exhibition, Jane Perryman will be showing a group of hemispherical double walled bowls mixed with different organic and man-made materials collected randomly, each a metaphor for memory and words.
Using combinations of press moulding, coiling and slabbing processes before burnishing the surface, her pieces are then low fired and then refined with sandpaper followed by a higher temperature firing.
Peter Beard’s work has been exhibited around the world and is represented in numerous museums, public collections and private collections in the UK and overseas. The award winning artist has a contemplative approach to making and spends much of his time sketching out ideas for new pieces.
