The Elements at Artchoke Gallery

When all that glitters is not gold but that doesn’t stop us dreaming. An underlying connection between science and art forms an exhibition that, at first glance, may appear to be somewhat eclectic
The jewellers continue a long tradition of alchemy, using fire to fuse and form and texture, searching for rocks formed by intense natural forces. Controlling the elements is a constant challenge for the ceramic artist. Combining earth and water to create each unique piece through the long process of observation, hand building, incising and burnishing. Oxides and glazes reacting to the heat, waiting for that exciting moment when the kiln is opened and the soft clay becomes everlasting. The magic of fire fusing powder into glass, creating a tactile object, enticing to the eye as well as the hand. The painter reacts to the elements: depicting light and atmosphere from the stillness of night, racing clouds or the forces at sea. A connection with our landscape, whether the long view or looking closer, using materials created with a scientific mind. A touch of fairy dust (or is it a dusting fairy) adds a reminder of the season to come.
