Taming Smoke by Amanda Griffiths
at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral in the Lady Chapel
4 – 29 September 2010
A collection of smoke fired ceramics with drawings, paintings and photographs to show the underlying creative practice.
A very well presented show by Amanda Griffiths who is completing her MA in Creative Practice at Hope University and whose Great Grandfather worked as a stone mason on the building of the cathedral. I enjoyed looking through her journals, she has done an amazing amount of research, visiting many art, craft and sculpture shows and making sketches to formulate ideas.
The ceramics themselves suit the space very well looking quite strong but delicate at the same time and interesting use of different materials and I like the way they have been displayed in the Lady Chapel by the windows depicting Noble Women.
