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.

Fire + Earth: Shannon Donovan

Aw shucks, it’s time to talk about me. I’m pleased to be exhibiting in as well as helping to organise and curate Fire + Earth. I’ll be presenting a selection of my wall-hanging sculptures that evoke the forest floor and the floating world of water lilies.

Fire + Earth: Verity Howard

Fire + Earth will feature work by Verity Howard, who brings a fresh fusion of ideas and technique to the field of ceramics. Combining traditional hand-building with surface printing and drawing, Verity’s pared-down work expresses the essentials of her subject matter, as in the image below.
