Craft Unravelled: Behind Closed Doors with Verity Howard
Behind Closed Doors: Ceramics by Verity Howard
Join us for a very special Craft Unravelled! Verity Howard will be giving an artist talk, a tour of her exhibition, and showing us her sketchbooks and the inspirations behind her work.
Verity’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.
Free, no booking required, meet at the exhibition space on the ground floor at 1.30pm.
