A solo show by ceramicist Bridget Macklin in which she presents innovative works that explore themes of fragility.

Bridget’s work demonstrates her desire to tell the story of our landscape and the way that we relate to it. The work will incorporate found materials and images from specific localities focusing on the relationships between the geology and ecology of a place and those species with which we share the planet. Some of the work will reference the structure and fabric of the gallery whilst other pieces will consider redevelopment projects which invite sustainable relationships with wildlife.

She is interested in the simplicity of form, creating experimental work, and often using unglazed clay. She starts each unique piece from pure porcelain, with connotations of beauty, value and fragility. To this she adds found materials and images, delighting in experimenting and in taking risks, She strives for ever thinner work which only reveals its full nature on closer inspection. Work is high fired to bring out the translucence of the porcelain and to flux or burn any inclusions. This causes pressure within the piece and results in distortions, craters, blisters and exploding splinters of rock, the impacts of which appear as points of tension.
