Grinning like a Toby Jug here. Excited to to let you know that I have been selected as an Explore artist by the British Ceramics Biennial 2013.
This means I’ll be heading back to Stoke-on-Trent this September to compose and install a sequence of poetic objects responding to the city and the ceramics industry. The what and how of this will remain under wraps for the moment – there’s intrigue for you – but I’ll blog here and there about my preparations and tests over the summer.
The full programme of commissions and partnerships has been released and I’m thrilled to see that the other Explore artists are Stephen Dixon, Monica Patuszynska, Megan Randall and Phoebe Cummings whose gorgeous work Fragment – which used raw clay dredged from Staffordshire – won the BCB Award in 2011.
