'Shades of Clay'
Kunsthuis Gallery, Crayke, North Yorkshire
3rd November - 24th December 2017
Deiniol will have a small selection of his new wood-fired ceramic pieces at the Kunsthuis gallery as part of the 'Shades of Clay' exhibition'.
Deiniol has increasingly been experimenting with stone inclusions mixed into the clay, which pushes 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.
After recently being awarded a bursary from a-n Artist Information Company to learn how to screen print, Deiniol has started experimenting and developing his own ceramic slip patterns and designs which are applied onto the clay surface. He is developing the technique to work in conjunction with the inclusions.
