About the exhibition

Artists from diverse disciplines have been discovering the versatility of clay, setting new trends and engaging new audiences while others have sought to learn age old practices of wheel forming, casting and hand building that requires countless hours developing techniques and mastering skills. A whole new generation of craftspeople and designer makers have emerged along with new market places outside the traditional gallery and retail environment.

The exhibition explores varied approaches to making and the artists’ motivations and inspirations. The work has a strong relationship to the built or natural environment, sometimes as a contemplation and sometimes in a practical sense – enhancing to the way we live. Together, these eight artists are part of a new generation of craftspeople and designer-makers who have emerged alongside new and non-traditional market places outside the gallery and retail environment.
