posted in: showcase | 0

The next Showcase will run throughout August, September and October 2021. We are excited to welcome three artists to the showcase exhibition space, which is located on the first floor at designermakers21. Exhibiting work will be Katie Hay-Molopo, Dominic Upson and Peny Conway (Cornfield Glass).

Katie Hay-Molopo – Mixed Media “My current work frequently combines text and images, in digital and traditional media formats, often in black and white. The goal of my work is to celebrate small things, create space for thoughtful reflection and gratitude, and exemplify arts’ ability to be beautiful, connect people and bring joy.”

Dominic Upson – Ceramics “Functional pottery for day to day use, simple and lively mark making with different types of slip. I make work on the potter’s wheel, then finish off the pieces with handles or foot rings. Glazing varies depending on what kiln I use to fire the work, electric firing, gas firing to get iron spots out of the clay. The salt firing which gives the work a beautiful orange peel surface. Wood firing gives beautiful flame flashing on the pots.”

Peny Conway – Glass “I make fused glass plates, bowls and other pieces. Processes include cutting glass, using fibre paper to carve relief and fusing in a kiln.”

You can visit the Showcase Exhibition from the 5th August 2021, during designermakers21 opening hours Thursday-Saturday 10am-5pm.
