About

Gillian Lowndes (1936-2010) was one of the most daring and original artists of the post-war period. Though she trained as a potter, her work hovers between craft and fine art, pottery and sculpture. Often incorporating found objects into her practice, her unorthodox methods involved dipping materials in clay to be fired, burying work in sand and destroying fired pieces with a hammer, only to reassemble them again with ceramic mortar.

Focusing on Lowndes’ work from the 1980s to the 2000s, the exhibition showcases a small number of tabletop and wall pieces which reflect the breadth of her practice in the last decades of her career and demonstrates the radical ways in which she stretched and subverted ceramic practice.
