Artists Kate Wischusen, Lauren Joffe and Georgina Proud present a curated selection of their latest ceramic works in this new group exhibition. They each work across a number of ceramic techniques including wheel-throwing, hand-building, and high-firing in both oxidised and reduced atmospheres.
Through exploring the reactivity of light against surface and material, each artist considers the relationship between light, shadow and form in their works, whilst playing with concepts of memory, beauty and femininity. Their collective skills across both concept and material process, enables them to achieve the many unique forms and finishes demonstrated throughout this exhibition.
“We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and the darkness, that one thing against another creates…were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty.”
- In Praise of Shadows, Junichiro Tanizaki
- Stay tuned for details on a workshop with the artists in the Kingston Ceramic Studio later this year!
