Our new shows are now open and will continue until 31 July.
In our main gallery we are showing a brand new body of work by leading ceramicist Philip Eglin. A series of drug jars use imagery reworked from the 19th century Spode's Indian Sporting series of designs while his large jugs are loosely based on 13th century Umbrian maiolica examples. These wonderful ceramic vessels inspired by Eglin's interest in visual culture are a lively orchestration of drama and incident.
Meanwhile, the Project Space welcomes the adventurous spatial constructions of talented young sculptor Neil Dixon. Dixon uses the basic materials of architecture- timber and clay- to create a kind of imaginary architecture. His miniature buildings and settlements invite imaginative exploration and the possibility of creating new narratives of space and place.
