Discover the unique and captivating world of Neil and Sally MacDonell in their upcoming ceramic exhibition at Contemporary Ceramics.
Neil’s work, inspired by decaying industrial architecture and desolate landscapes, features patterns, textures, and forms derived from his vast collection of found objects. His recent pieces showcase the tones of residual paint often found on source objects, while others feature a dry stoneware glaze over metal oxides.
“Why heads? The head is the seat of dreams and imagination” – Neil MacDonell
On the other hand, Sally’s spontaneously modelled pieces express familiar, transient moments through pinching and squeezing slabs to form the female body, with visible joins adding to the process and serving as elements of colour in glazing. Experience the connection between the artist and the viewer, prompting a feeling of common humanity in this unique exhibition.
"Dual Function" is a celebration of form and function in ceramic art, a captivating exhibition featuring the work of two distinguished ceramicists, Terry Bell-Hughes and Chris Keenan.
Celebrating 45 years of exceptional ceramic artistry by Tim Andrews, a master of his craft.
Lara’s relationship with colour has evolved from being shy about it, to exploring it more over time. She is an intuitive maker who works on multiple pieces at once. Her process is casting and decoration with a combination of marks including incised drawing and sgraffito through coloured underglaze.
