Dawn Clayden: The Colour & The Shape

This exuberant collection is made of vases, lidded vessels and Ginger Jars. Each piece tells a story of colour and pattern to entertain the eye.

Dawn says, "These vessels have been adorned with layers of bold colours, floral decals and handmade cascading flowers with editions of gold and platinum lustre. Conceptually I have been navigating through a push-pull with conventional design and embracing an essence with the enthusiasm of kitsch. I’m very structured in my making and visually approach each piece I make as landscape - intrinsically I create a visual story for the eye to follow."

8 November - 1 December
