12th April – 31st May
Gallery Nine’s latest exhibition features internationally recognised artist Bruce McLean, ceramicist Clive Bowen and Sasha Wardell, and jewellers Charmian Harris and Emily Nixon.
The exhibition will be showcasing Bruce McLean’s original signed prints and ceramics. As a leading figure in the British contemporary art scene, luminous colours and organic shapes give Bruce’s work a fantastic expressive quality, his work can be found in private and public collections worldwide.
Potter Clive Bowen studied painting at Cardiff Art School before being taken on as an apprentice by Michael Leach. He has been making wood-fired slipware since 1971 at his workshop in Devon. Clive’s work is held in major public collections around the world and he holds regular exhibitions both in the UK and Japan.
Sasha Wardell’s distinctive combination of pure white slip cast bone china is treated with unique decorating techniques and finished in a carefully chosen palette of muted, subtle colours.
Jeweller Charmian Harris makes beautiful one off pieces from silver, gold and semi precious stones. Charmian is influenced by early Greek, Egyptian and Colombian jewellery
Emily Nixon creates beautiful handcrafted rings for weddings and engagements and precious pieces that are inspired by textures found along the tide line. Emily is intrigued by the notion of connecting found natural materials with precious stones and metal.
The gallery is open Mon-Sat, 10am-5pm.
