HEAT is an exhibition reflecting the various firing techniques ceramicists use to transform raw clay into finished ceramic work. The ceramicists in the exhibition celebrate the many ways HEAT is used to bring their individual ideas to fruition. Their methods include Raku, Wood, Electric, Gas firings and other techniques to achieve the finished work.
Work by a number of Northern Potters Association members is showcased at Water Street Gallery , approaching its 10th anniversary, in the Yorkshire Pennines town of Todmorden, well-known for its edible gardens in public spaces.
Among the exhibitors, Drew Caines' Ďarchaic pop creatures' sit alongside Gabi Koma -Dixon's thrown and glazed earthenware pots whilst Deiniol Williams' wood fired stoneware pieces keep company with Brian Holland's sculptural work. Dianne Cross' hand built work evokes the feeling of the shoreline , John Cook's reflect the use of multi-fire majolica techniques and Claire Allam makes porcelain pots..
