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
