Virtual Ceramic Art London 2020

#virtualcal2020 #instaCAL #VirtualCAL

With the disappointment of the cancellation of Ceramic Art London due to the corona virus outbreak, potters are trying to make the best of it! We are rather used to dealing with disappointments. Every time we open the kiln expectations are dashed, but very often although the results are not what we expected or hoped for they can surprise us with alternative forms of beauty.

I plan to put some of the work online to view and purchase. A virtual Ceramic Art London. There are other exhibitors trying the same thing too and the organisers of CAL will be promoting our efforts. So if you are missing the joy of the real Ceramic Art London I hope this will help.

This will happen on my Instagram page  to begin with  https://www.instagram.com/patriciashoneceramics/?hl=en and then on my website shop. Hopefully I can get it to work in a short time!

Textures of the Land 04/01/2020 - 01/02/2020
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Textures of the Land

Textures of the Land at The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh is my first major solo exhibition. I am delighted to be showing at this gallery again after a successful joint show in 2018.

Working from the Isle of Skye for the past 25 years I see my work as an expression of the journey towards understanding my place in life. I can’t separate it from my experience of living in this landscape or from the path that brought me here.
The exhibition will feature new work in the Erosion Series. It is a culmination of the development of my particular making methods and will include pieces from all three of the firing processes: raku, charcoal saggar and wood firing.

The show can be previewed online from the 19th December at   www.scottish-gallery.co.uk

Textures of the Land takes place at The Scottish Gallery, 16 Dundas Street, Edinburgh from 4 January – 1 February 2020.

York Ceramics Fair 2019

I’m looking forward to being part of this relatively new show on the pottery circuit. The Craft Potters Association and the Centre of Ceramic Art at York Art Gallery are joining together to present the York Ceramics Fair and the CoCA Day of Clay with events, workshops, talks, demonstrations and selling exhibitions.

It’s perfect timing for early Christmas planners but happily free from too much tinsel. Brown and crusty pots in abundance! And some porcelain too.

Across Land & Sea

Circus Artspace,

Inverness Creative Academy, Midmills Building, Stephen’s Street, Inverness, IV2 3JP

“This exhibition (11-20 October) represents the coming together of three artists, spanning the Highlands and Islands, who share a common interest in elemental material and process. Through their work, each individually draws from the northern landscape and references their own notion of community and place.”

Shaun Fraser @shaun_fraser  Patricia Shone @patriciashoneceramics  Vivian Ross-Smith @vrosssmith

This has been a great chance for me to revisit some time based clay installation ideas from over the years. The effect of water on dry clay can be quite dramatic. These works gives a chance to see how structures disintegrate and change over time, water being the agent of that change. Also included are experiments with porcelain and newsprint creating pieces as fragile as memories.

CIRCUS is a collective of practising, professional artists and producers committed to making contemporary art accessible to a broader Highland audience as well as supporting recent art graduates from our area. We are all based in Inverness and work across many different disciplines including painting, printmaking, sculpture, film and performance.

The Art of Gathering – the New Craftsman Gallery, St Ives

The exhibition, The Art of Gathering, will bring together artists and makers who use ‘gathering’ as an integral part of their practice.

àite cruinneachaidh – gathering place (Scots Gaelic)

Gathering is such an evocative notion, especially here in the Highlands. Gathering together often meant walking many miles on narrow tracks. My journey has been more of a gathering of myself and what is important to me, and ultimately finding my place in the world. Working with clay, knowing the processes and history of the material and its domestic uses always brings me back to how it connects human beings, how it gathers us together in a common humanity.

The show also includes a local painter from Newlyn, Michael Porter showing his exquiste ‘Dirt Series’, the studio collective Forest and Found – naturally dyed applique textiles by Abigail Booth and wood vessels by Max Bainbridge (they have been selected this year for the Jerwood Makers prize ), silversmith Stuart Cairns and the Irish basketmaker Joe Hogan (finalist in the Loewe Foundation Craft prize 2018).
