Having an inspiring and wonderful time working with the Ikon Gallery and several of Birmingham’s Nursery Schools. Parents, children and staff from Lillian de Lissa, Cheeky Monkeys, David Gretton Nursery Schools and Poppits Playgroup have been working in clay inspired by the paintings of Hurvin Anderson, an international artist originating from Birmingham. Hurvins giant canvases are on show at the Ikon Gallery untill 10th November 2013.
Hundreds of people helped create these scrumptious glazed fruit at the Hereford Celebration event held at King George playing fields in September.
If you’d like to see the sculptures in the flesh so to speak, take a trip to Ledbury High Street and check out the Dry Cleaners window after October 1/2 term. After they’ve been exhibited there, we’ll be handing them over to Brightstripe as an exhibition resource.
Great to be back at Marlbrook Primary School in Hereford….and a Jon the Potter first – made 60 or so clay Buddha’s with YR6. Here’s just one of them.
Once October 1/2 term is out of the way, we’ll exhibit them in the Priory Cleaners window in Ledbury High Street.
Enjoyed my day working with students and staff at Birmingham University Medical School making individual clay creations in the shape of leaves and foliage. Once the masterpieces have been fired and glazed they will form a tree of life tile panel installed in the School’s Multi-faith prayer room.
