Spode factory

British Ceramics Biennial 2011

Yesterday I travelled up to Stoke On Trent to deliver work to the British Ceramics Biennial.
I will be exhibiting at FRESH within the old Spode factory only a short walk from the train station for those of you wanting to visit.
I am one of the six research graduates selected to exhibit and can be found under REfresh.

Here's a glimpse of the enormous space within the bare bones of what was once a thriving hub of British pottery production and fine bone china. It's always interesting to gain some understanding of the vast amount of work that goes into hosting a show of this calibre.

This was the space a couple of days ago whilst the contractors were still on site working. Work was beginning to be installed but it seemed to be mostly wall mounted pieces. The freestanding works are being shown on the original features such as benches and racking. REfresh are having floating walls in order to divide the spaces into individual contained units allowing the body of research to be seen with more clarity.

 I can't wait to see the transformation on the opening night.
