Playing with Fire – Contemporary UK Enamel with Ed Silverton

Not quite all ceramics, but enamel by one of our ”potters” Ed Silverton, whose work I admire! Andy McInnes visited the show at wolverhampton and had the following comments:
‘If, like me,¬†your thoughts on Enamel work were Jewelry,¬†bowls (which are here) be prepared¬†to have your visual senses¬†given a real treat, the work of Ed Silverton¬†in particular was worth the admission fee, if there had been one! Ed has¬†three large pieces, that vary¬†in size and are shaped like cacti (see image)!¬†¬†A fantastic exhibition and one that should be seen by as many people as possible, certainly the best Exhibition I’ve seen for a long time.
Last chance to see it at wolverhampton – Now it is ¬†on at¬†Cheltenham Art Gallery, Gloucestershire¬† 14 November 2009¬†-¬†24 January 2010′- Andy McInnes
