Luckily enough, we were provided a great space at The Works In the city centre of Birmingham, A small walk away form the Birmingham Bullring, Markets and Custard Factory. We began to put up the work on Monday....and the exhibition was on wednesday night! So a very short amount of time to organise things, however, the tutors put in a lot of thought and effort to get it up in time.
The mid year show is about being able to experience exhibiting our own art work. whether thats fine art, photography or ceramics, its a great dry run at our FMP. its certainly got me thinking about what i could possibly do for my FMP and how i would perhaps lay it out ext, and in fact this experience has given me an idea of what I could base my thoughts on.
Anyway, the night was a success, there was food, wine and entertainment. I also received some great feedback about my work!
Some 2D illustrations from my sketchbook, to support the 3D work
My favourite piece. I lightly glazed the porcelain fragments from one of the bowls that got damaged when in the kiln. The image doesn't do it justice, however, i got my dad to knock up a 10x10 wooden plinth which i then painted white, inside and out and installing a light inside and used a sheet of clear perspex as the lid.
Very very very pleased with how everyones work looked.
My favourite pieces would have to be by a ceramic artist, Mykayla. She created this range of organic inspired sculptures. The glazing was full of depth and so much texture and intriguing surface finish. So hard to not touch!
Thats all for today.
