Made in the Middle

Made in the Middle Exhibition

Private views are great for networking and catching up with old acquaintances but near damn useless for taking stock of the exhibits. Although I attended the corporate , viewing of Made in the Middle, I still hadn’t felt like I’d actually ‘seen’ the exhibition. So after workshop duties at St Thomas’s on Tuesday last week I headed down to the MAC to experience the show for real.

I was encouraged by a small crowd of visitors around my musical drum pots, gently tapping out rhythms and notes. (I secretly had reservations as to whether punters would interact with the work in a predominantly ‘eyes only’ show) The positive comments on the post-it note evaluation provided more evidence the pieces were being well used. Have a look at the photos on our Facebook page.

The exhibition runs till the 15 April at MAC then it goes on tour through-out the Midlands.

Sensational Clay delivery

It was handy working in Birmingham in the build up to my exhibition.Shake, rattle & roll pots by Studio Potter Jon Williams from Eastnor Pottery & The Flying Potter, Herefordshire

After a day of clay play and messing around with mud at the fabulous St Thomas’ Children’s Center, I was able to whizz up the M6 and deliver several consignments of pots and sculpture – spread over five days.
