Jennifer Lee : the potter's space at Kettle's Yard, Cambridge

I recently photographed the beautiful new exhibition by ceramicist Jennifer Lee at Kettle's Yard, Cambridge. It is her first UK show since 1994 and it shows work spanning 40 years. The exhibition was designed by Jamie Fobert Architects and after several visits to Lee's studio they decided the space of the studio should also be shown in the exhibition. They decided a single surface the exact height of Jennifer's workbench would be 'a powerful yet minimal response.'

To learn more about the inspiration behind the design of the exhibition please visit Jamie Fobert's website.

Brutal Textures: Sculptural Ceramics

Ceramicist Matt Raw is running a series of ceramic workshops at the Barbican inspired by it's brutalist architecture.

I have worked with Matt in the past photographing past exhibitions and his working processes so was thrilled when he contacted me to say he took some inspiration from the photographs I have posted on Instagram of the Barbican for the workshop. The classes look great so if you're a fan of brutalism and ceramics check it out.

For updates from Matt check out his Instagram page.

New Work - National Theatre Studio

It was great to start the new year with a bit of time to work on my personal project, Beautiful Brutalism and add the very elegant National Theatre Studio to the project. Designed by Lyons, Israel & Ellis in 1958 it was built to house the scenery workshops, painting studio, wardrobe and offices for The Old Vic which later became the National Theatre. It is one of the earliest and purest examples of 'New Brutalism' which emerged from corbusian aesthics of raw, expressed shuttered concrete. It is the only architect-designed theatre workshop ever built in Britain so was Grade II listed in 2006 and carefully refurbished in 2008 by Haworth Tompkins Architects.

Sound of Silence Exhibition

Last week I photographed the wonderful Sound of Silence. It is a site specific exhibition between painter Alessandra Taccia and ceramicist Akiko Hirai in the beautiful St Peter's Church, Cambridge in conjunction with Flow Gallery, London.

The exhibition groups the work of two different artists working in different mediums but exploring the same themes, the idea of pausing, looking and the connection between object and environment. A moment to stop time. The church has a wonderful calming energy to it and the artwork looked as though it was a permanent fixture within the church. It was an amazing project to photograph and so lovely to work with the artists and Flow Gallery.

The whole project can be viewed here and the exhibition runs until 12th May 2018.
