After a busy few months of making I’m delighted to be in the upcoming exhibition
LER! / CLAY! at Museum Jorn in Silkeborg, Denmark. The Museum houses an incredible collection of Asger Jorn’s art and this exhibition explores the potential of ceramics and various ideas at the heart of his work.

LER! / CLAY! opens on Saturday 10th February and runs until 10th June. You can find more info at the Museum Jorn website here and I’ll be giving an artist’s talk as part of various events during the opening weekend.

AGAIN in States of Play at the Humber Street Gallery, Hull UK City Of Culture 2017

Wednesday 28th June 2017

AGAIN features in the upcoming exhibition States of Play which launches at the Humber Street Gallery for Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and will be on show from 7th July - 24th September 2017. The exhibition challenges the idea of play as a preserve only for children and presents play as a way of being, of understanding the world and giving it form.

Over the course of States of Play over 10,000 hand made ceramic coins will be distributed to visitors to play the customised arcade coin pusher stocked with terracotta, porcelain and 24ct gold ceramic wealth. Visitors are left with a choice as they enter into a wager into the artwork: keep their winnings, or risk them again in the machine.

Included within its pages is a new translation of one of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s most poignant letters as well as contributions from poets, artists, academics, an archaeologist, a psychoanalyst, a valuation expert, a bookmaker and a mudlarker.

States of Play is curated by the Crafts Council and supported by Arts Council England and British Council. AGAIN and the very last time are supported by Arts Council England, Potclays and the Firstsite Associate Artist Bursary Scheme.

Kitchen Foil Print Portfolio

Friday 19th March 2016

Back in late 2015 ambergris editions held a series of print workshops led by Lisa Wilkens in the Window Room kitchen of Wysing Arts Centre.

Together with 8 other artists and 1 curator we learnt how to print using the lo-fi technique of Kitchen Lithography - a process using nothing more than kitchen foil, cola, ink, paper and an all important wooden spoon.

The results are now available from ambergris editions in the Kitchen Foil Print Portfolio featuring works by Alexandra Drysdale, Alison Gibb, Bettina Furnee, Caroline Wendling, Josepa Munoz, Lawrence Epps, Lisa Wilkens, Lotte Juul Petersen, Naomi Harwin and Steve Ruiz.
