Sue Hanna and Antonia Salmon are linked by an exploration of sculptural form and the qualities of smoke firing as they come together to create a striking group exhibition at Contemporary Ceramics.

About

This joint exhibition reveals how two ceramists explore geometry and form, whilst harnessing smoke firing to enrich their surfaces.

Sue Hanna's sculptural surfaces bring contemporary language to art historical cultural symbolism and the abstract figure. Working from Haverfordwest, Sue Hanna embraces the meditative process of handbuilding, using clay slabs to develop clean vessels and sculptural surfaces. Overlaid shapes and intricate textures then take on new dimension during the unpredictable saggar or raku firing process.

Similarly drawn to handbuilding, Antonia Salmon's abstract sculptures often combine mulitple methods of mould making and throwing. Based in Sheffield, Antonia's work is intended to be experienced, capturing qualities derived from the natural world and more recently poetry. Driven by a love of geometry, her forms are slowly and deliberatley developed until resolved to achieve her final compositions. The work is then burnished and smoke-fired to create timeless, nuanced finishes that hold stillness at their centre.
