Smoke firing at the Fitzwilliam
Artist Mella Shaw will give a talk about her practice and her recent work HARVEST, a large scale ceramic installation recently showcased by the Craft Council as part of Collect Open at the Saatchi Gallery, London. Using smoke-firing techniques with large quantities of press-moulded and slip-cast forms, Shaw’s strong but delicate work focuses on the urgent issue of plastic pollution in the oceans and seas – exploring and confronting themes of fragility and loss. The talk will be followed by a smoke-firing demonstration on the front lawn of the Museum.
