Visitors will be all of a flutter at the sight of this wonderful selection of bird inspired craft
The temporary exhibition will feature an enchanting selection of ceramics, glasswork, driftwood sculptures and drawings, each piece inspired by the form and flight of birds. Alongside regular exhibitiors Wendy Ramshaw, Laurence McGowan, Prue Cooper and Sid Burnard, new additions to the De Morgan fold are glass artist Heather Konschuh, ceramicist Anthony Theakston and jeweller Barbara Christie.
A wide range of pieces will be exhibited, including both decorative and functional ceramics such as Laurence McGowan’s beautiful stoneware adorned with festive robins and Prue Cooper’s witty yet traditional slipware. Magical driftwood sculptures of birds peeping out of nests or perching on branches are presented by sculptor Sid Burnard, and elegant bird jugs and decorative lidded pots by Anthony Theakston. Colourful blown glass birds by Canadian glass artist Heather Konschuh and decorative jewellery in precious metals by Barbara Christie will also be exhibited.
The Centre is delighted to be able to present a collection of bird drawings created exclusively for the De Morgan Centre and inspired by the collection of De Morgan’s whimsical decorated pottery by internationally renowned jeweller and designer Wendy Ramshaw.
This show offers the perfect opportunity to purchase interesting and unique Christmas presents or even a gift to keep for yourself!
