The great ‘Sensational Clay’ sell off – 12th August 2015 – Bilston Craft Gallery Garden Festival
I’ll be offering all the pieces at a fraction of their original value, in fact everything will be priced between a bargain £5 and £30 – everything must go!
For those who didn’t have the opportunity to visit the exhibition in one of five venues across the West Midlands and beyond, missed out on an extravaganza of fired ceramic designed to stimulate the five senses. All the exhibits were made with visitor interaction in mind and as well as being accessible to touch, there were aromatic pieces, musical rattle pots and sculptural curios inspired by food and drink.
Sensational Clay was first exhibited at Bilston Craft Gallery in the Summer of 2011. The show proved so popular with it’s intended family audience, the Gallery suggested it be offered to other venues as a touring resource. It went on to be exhibited at New Brewery Arts in Cirencester, Tulie House Museum & Art gallery in Carslile, Worcester City Museum & Art Gallery before it’s last outing at Leamington Spa Art Gallery in Warwickshire.
The Garden Festival starts at 2pm and is due to finish at 5pm but do hurry as the work won’t be around for long!
Even as I was unboxing the collection of Musical Water jugs, young musicians and pottery lovers were on the scene, eager to trial the installation. The pots will be proper put through their paces on Sunday 26th July as the new interactive Water Park at The Waterworks Museum in Hereford gets it’s official opening by the Mayor of Hereford.
