Preview evening:
Fri 4 May, 6–8 PM

If you can’t make it to LoM during Marches Makers, there will be two more chances to see our work this year. I’ll be exhibiting at Ceramic Wales in Wrexham from 13-15 July. Then, for h.Art, Andrew is participating in a group exhibition at the Old Police Station in Kington, 8-16 September. As for me, I’m honoured to be one of the winners of the h.Art Old Mayor’s Parlour Prize and will be exhibiting there, along with two other artists, during September.

Finally, we’ll send a separate message regarding the General Data Protection Regulations and how these affect your subscription to news about Leg of Mutton. In the meantime, please don’t ever hesitate to get in touch with us. Looking forward to seeing you all!

Fire + Earth: Stephen Cox RA

For the final installment of an image a day from Fire + Earth, we offer you some majestic majolica by Royal Academician Stephen Cox. Stephen’s explorations in the medium came about owing to his interest in the three treatises of Cipriano Piccolpasso on renaissance lead glaze pottery. These works have never been exhibited before, and we’re exceptionally honoured to present them.

Fire + Earth will be on view at Aardvark Books, Brampton Bryan SY7 0DH, from 8-23 April.
