‘Time Present and Time Past’ Clare Twomey at William Morris Gallery

posted 22 Jun 2016, 03:30 by Bill Crumbleholme


I wanted to let you know about a new ceramics exhibition at the William Morris Gallery, which members of the Dorset Pottery Group may be interested in. It would also be fantastic if you could share this with your followers on social media.

For this major new installation, titled ‘Time Present and Time Past,’ ceramicist Clare Twomey has created a vast tile panel embellished with William Morris’s intricate Chrysanthemum design. Over 67 days, 67 members of the public will undertake the role of ‘Apprentice,’ working alongside Twomey’s master painter to apply gold enamel to the surface. Visitors will be able to witness the panel’s slow transformation from one state of beauty to another.
