You are warmly invited to the opening of two exhibitions in our Front Room Gallery.

Thomas won the “Wallace Artist Residency” prize at the annual Fire & Clay Show 2017. The work in this show is the result of this residency.

"Chasing the ooze began with noticing that the slow crawl of viscous substances (ooze) sparked my imagination and suggested something a bit primal. Breaking formal boundaries and obscuring the classical structures that underlie many of these pots with different interpretations of this 'ooze' felt somehow forbidden, but satisfying... and a bit fun. I found it impossible to 'ooze up' anything without a grin on my face."

Over the last few years Brendan has been investigating and combining electronic componentry with ceramic design.

With these pieces I aimed to make functional objects that made sound. The limitless possibilities of hand formed ceramics lends itself to investigating unique shapes for this project. In the design and making of these pieces I felt the interaction with the user is important feature, (twiddling the ceramic knobs and flicking the switches). The open ceramic body had the added advantage of good acoustic qualities. I relished the challenge of combining the oldest technologies with the most modern.
