The year has begun and this exhibition evokes the coming of spring.
Daniel Wright RCA – ceramics
Daniel produces hand-thrown earthenware covered in white and coloured slips with hand drawn transfers screen-printed in black enamel. His is inspired by English slipware and 1950’s Ridgeware ceramics, and influenced by the Italian designer Piero Fornasetti. His work relates to either function of the object or the locality of the area eg. The Hay Collection, St David’s, Much Wenlock, Roach Castle.

Amanda Wright – embroidery
When Amanda was working in ceramics… ‘I discovered the thrill of surface pattern and after my MA I concentrated my efforts into translating my images into textiles.’
Now living and working in St. David’s, West Wales, Amanda’s imagery is taken from her immediate environment, her community and landscape.
‘Hand stitched embroidery is a slow and linear process, but it allows time to reflect as the work progresses.’

Henrietta Corbett – printmaking
Henrietta is drawn to texture, colour and sense of line. The rural landscapes of Leicestershire and South West Ireland have been inspiration to her imagery – sparse linear shapes of animal, bird and the scarring and marking on the landscape. She is experimental both in her printmaking and painting, techniques such as carborundum printing and acrylic paint on Perspex.
Henrietta studied Sculpture and Printmaking at Wolverhampton Polytechnic, where she was taught by Anish Kapoor.
Sarah Lindsay RCA – jewellery
‘Acrylic/plastics allow me to make jewellery which has an empathy with textiles being colourful, soft and lightweight.’ Sarah mixes opaque and translucent, solid and speckled colours in innovative and exciting ways.
