Maggie Barnes: Arts Council Research & Development Grant: 2010 – 2012

In the spring of 2010 Maggie Barnes was awarded an Arts Council Research & Development Grant. The intention was to mark 30 years of practice by re-visiting a technique she’d experimented with 20 years earlier whilst living and working in Germany.

Beyond the research period, a body of work is to be developed to complement her well-established white porcelain production, and move studio practice forward into a fourth decade of development.

The process is NERIKOMI, a Japanese technique involving the lamination of stained porcelain slabs to create intricately patterned blocks and sheets of clay which are then cut and re-assembled to form decorative vessels. Although the process is historic, the nature of assembly means that the maker is able to produce his/her unique interpretations.

It’s important to note that the emphasis of this experimental work is on process; with faults, failures, and downright disasters shown alongside early successes. Maggie believes that to fail is a necessary part of the learning experience, and that lasting skills are acquired through hard work, long hours, and many disappointments.

The various outcomes from this intensive period of exploration are to be showcased in September 2012 at the Mercer Art Gallery, Swan Road, Harrogate, where Maggie will give an illustrated talk later in the autumn. (see events listings)

Preview September 21st. A small publication recording this period of Research & Development can be ordered direct from Maggie priced £5 postage free or from the Gallery shop.
