The Craft & Design Collective presents SLOW BURN, an exhibition of ceramics curated by ceramic artist Gail Mahon.

Preview: 6-8pm, Thursday 5 August 2010.

SLOW BURN showcases some beautiful and thoughtful work in celebration of clay as a material and it's legacy of endurance and journey. The exhibition will explore clay as a material, its endurance and the legacy of time - historically, culturally and physically.  A material so instantly visceral in its reaction to touch, manipulation and application from domestic vessel to the architectural, each Artist/Designer/Maker  works in a different way with this material, and explores the challenge it presents.  A preview will ll take place from 6-8pm on Thursday, 5 August.

Featured Artist/Designer/Makers include Adam Frew, Brigitta Seck, Cormac Boydell, Deirdre Hawthorne, Derek Wilson, Gail Mahon, Michael Moore and Rory Shearer, Shane Porter, Mary Pearson, Anne O'Neill and Claire Muckian. 

Visitors to the exhibition will also be asked to vote for their favourite piece and a 'People's Prize Award' of £500 will be presented to the winning Artist/Designer/Maker.
The 'People's Prize Award is sponsored by Ulster Ceramics and the Craft & Design Collective.
