Our next exhibition is 'Where Stories Begin' - David Chilton's solo exhibition.
Bristol based ceramicist David Chilton was born in the West Country and studied studied at Cardiff. He works in the medium of porcelain paper clay; hand building delicate, figurative vessels and sculpture from sheets of clay. Formed by a technique developed and refined over time; his work is enhanced by the use of glazes, precious lustres and metallic oxides.
David takes particular inspiration from a variety of mediaeval and 18th Century techniques, references in decorative and fine art as well as historical and contemporary fashion. His main focus is on the female form and the different contexts in which this has been viewed throughout history. Taking religious imagery and symbolism as inspiration, as well as more obscure fairy tales, folklore and myth, his work captures a timeless spirituality and sense of calm.
Preview evening; Friday 29th September, 6.30pm - 8.30pm.
Exhibition runs from Friday 29th September to Saturday 28th October.
