Base Materials led by artist Emilie Taylor at the Millenium Gallery, Sheffield until 6th October 2019.
I was commissioned to document the 12 hr process of wood firing pots and a celebratory event that followed as part of an art therapy based project by artist Emilie Taylor.
The project sees a group of adults undertaking great change in their lives explore the metaphor of turning mud into gold, the alchemy of materials and its power to affect our sense of self. The multimedia exhibition includes the wood-fired pots, drawings and the photographs of the process, sound pieces by Frances Byrnes and an installation of the feast table. Base Materials is on display at the Millennium Gallery, Sheffield until 6th October 2019.
