This exhibition brings together two Edinburgh based artists, ceramicist Hazel Frost and printmaker Kim Minuti.


Hazel Frost’s ceramics are hand built with the vast majority being thrown on the wheel. However, due to the restrictions of lockdown, she took to coil building, enjoying the slower nature of the process.

Whatever technique, Hazel looks to create balanced vessels, using several different clay bodies, from porcelain to foraged clay, to create pieces that are varied, but altogether cohesive. She draws on an exploration of slow geological deep time - the movements of the earth that create the clay that she works - together with exploring Scottish landscapes and natural forms.

Kim Minuti is drawn to the inconsequential, insignificant details in the spaces between our urban and natural environments and how these two worlds co-exist and collide. Minuti encourages us to take note of the small things in the places that surround and shape us, as seen through a printmaking lens. Her practice is fluid, open to chance and a sense of narrative forms from the moment of transfer to paper.

The relation of Minuti’s work to our environment and nature is vital to the integrity of the work, and she feels our interior spaces can celebrate this universality. Sea pebbles shaped by the tide have inspired this new range of work. Exposing found, displaced items directly to the screens, are printed, alongside amorphous, opaque and translucent shapes of shifting colour, creating a visual tension that is reminiscent of the constancy of time and perpetual change.
