Musical Ceramics Festival

Whilst doing preliminary research for my ACE funded ‘Ceramics & Sound’ project, I came across a Ceramic Music Festival held in 2012 in West Java, Indonesia.

ACE Grants for the Arts award success!

Delighted to have been awarded a G4A award from Arts Council England to enable a project that’s been bubbling away in the background for the past three years.

‘Ceramic Sound in Museums’ is the project title and this was the application blurb submitted to The Arts Council:

Exploring forms, textures and sound, unique and specific to the 3 Hereford based museums involved in the project: Waterworks Museum, Cider Museum and St John Medieval Museum & Coningsby Hospital, producing fired ceramic installations for the public to engage and interact with at each site. The pieces will be inspired by the
objects and sounds associated with the museums and industries connected with them. The project will progress my own creative development and professional practice in conjunction with the museums, including previously unexplored technologies and production techniques to enhance previously undertaken experimental work for exhibition.

I’m always keen to explore new materials, processes and collaborations, most recently on a project called *Random String initiated by Ludicrooms, based in Coventry. I was one of six artists selected to explore how digital
technology could be incorporated into hands-on practice.

*Random String is a Ludic Rooms project in partnership with Warwick Arts Centre and supported by Arts Council England.

Big big big thanks to Sue, Herefordshire’s Museum Development Officer who I’ve been working in partnership with for what seems like an age.
