Legacy 2

Manchester School of Art

25th January - 15th February 2018

Following the success of last year’s exhibition of alumni work, we start 2018 with Legacy 2.

Taking place in the School’s contemporary Benzie Building gallery spaces, Legacy captures the evolution of art and design practices beyond graduation from across a variety of disciplines and generations.

This exhibition also provides the perfect opportunity for current and prospective art and design students to take inspiration from those that have already progressed into exciting creative careers following their time at the School.
— Manchester School of Art

It has been over 12 years since Deiniol graduated from the 3D Design course at MMU and he now returns as an alumni with his most recent ceramic work exploring form, function, pattern, and place. He has been increasingly experimenting with stone inclusions mixed into clay which can drastically affect the forms through all the stages of their creation. The inclusions also push his throwing skills to the limit; the act of throwing becomes a balancing act between the clay's tendency to tear and collapse, and the control needed to create the forms. It requires complete focus with every movement considered, otherwise the form will not survive.

Open Monday to Friday 10am - 4pm


  *There will be a preview evening with the artists on Thursday 25th January at 5:30pm*

Please note that the exhibition will only be open during weekdays and closed over weekends. For further information visit the MMU website:
