EXHIBITION : February 25, 2016 — May 29, 2016.

Behind Closed Doors: Ceramics by Verity Howard

Verity Howard’s slab-built ceramic forms are inspired by her fascination with people’s everyday lives and activities. Each piece features a monoprinted or stamped glimpse through a window, and conveys a sense of stillness, absence of presence, and the eerie sensation of being an outsider looking in.

Behind Closed Doors features pieces made for Verity’s final project at university alongside new work made during a 2015 residency at Guldagergaard: The International Ceramic Research Center in Denmark.

Find out more about Verity and the inspirations behind her work by watching this short film.
