Further to our post about Mark Hearld's now sold out slipcast pigeons for our Editions & Objects exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, we're pleased to share details of the platters Mark has also produced.
As part of our Editions & Objects exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (which runs until the end of October 2016) Mark Hearld's has produced a small edition of ceramic pigeons especially for the event. The pigeons have been modelled by Mark using clay and then slipcast at the Potteries in Stoke-on-Trent. He has used a mixture of glazes, oxides and stains to decorate each piece, all of which take inspiration from Pablo Picasso’s pigeon paintings.
We were delighted that jeweller Katy Hackney is exhibiting as part of our current Editions & Objects exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Working with the theme of editions and multiples, many of the contributing artists have created new works specifically for the exhibition.
Mark Hearld has curated a new exhibition at Scarborough Art Gallery, All Creatures, that selects specimens of taxidermy from the Scarborough Collections.
Interrobang: an international showcase of letterpress print forms part of Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft's The Village of Type programme.
Selected by a panel of typographers and designers, this open submission exhibition forms part of Ditchling’s popular Artists’ Open House trail and takes place in the beautiful former studios of painter Sir Frank Brangwyn. The exhibition features the work of contemporary letterpress artists from as far afield as Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, The Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, and the USA.
Over the coming months we look forward to sharing news of a series of publications, events, films and interviews which celebrate the craft of print.
