Paul Fowler

Free entry

For his current project Paul Fowler introduces us to the unsung slaves of the artist’s studio – the lay figure. A visitor to a renaissance studio might have witnessed a lay figure in use to help rehearse composition, the fall of light and the painting of drapery and clothing when the sitter was absent. Paul’s most recent body of work begins to explore these characters as individuals, allowing their identity to flourish, posing poignant questions about the subject matter and, at times, giving the viewer a disquieting experience.

ceramic functional vessels bright colour

Ken Eardley

Free entry

His background in textiles and love for colour and pattern is abundantly clear across Ken Eardley’s ranges of functional ceramics. The work is hand-built using slabs of earthenware formed into cylinders that are then manipulated to make the vessels. Once fired they are then decorated using under glazes and hand cut stencils to create the bird, flower and elegant pattern motifs before a final firing using a layer of transparent glaze.
