Clay Intersections presents the work of Bridget Bodenham, Cone 11’s Colin Hopkins & Ilona Topolcsanyi, Helen Earl, Kenji Uranishi, Natalie Rosin, Tania Rollond and Ulrica Trulsson.

It explores varied approaches to making and working with clay and its sculptural and functional qualities, the intersection of ideas, aesthetics, skills and knowledge, of form and function, art and nature, making and selling, mastery and experimentation.

All the artists in the exhibition draw their inspiration from the built or natural environment. A recurring theme in conversation with the artists was their love for the transformational properties of clay – the way it moves from being plastic and malleable, to leather hard and dry, then fired into permanence, carrying the maker’s mark through time.
