OUT & ABOUT - York Museums Trusts Stores

The Ceramics Collection @ York Museum Stores

Spent a couple of hours in the York Museums Trusts stores yesterday with my fellow 'AA2A Plus' artist Ian Kirkpatrick. There is a vast amount of studio ceramics in the store. It was fascinating getting some background information on the collectors also. It was all a bit overwhelming in the short time we were there so hoping to get back and have another look around shortly. I feel I've only just scratched the surface, it would be great to have a look inside some of the boxes at selected objects.

NEWS - AA2A 'Plus' Residency

I'm just starting my AA2A (artists access to art college) placement with York College. I have also been selected by York Museums Trust for a 'Plus' placement which means I will be working directly with the Trust. During my residency I intend to make some form of response to York Museums Trusts ceramics collection. I'm looking forward to getting into the store and having a look through some of the collections! York Art Gallery will re-open summer 2015 with new ceramics galleries and a new centre of ceramic art(CoCA), I feel lucky to be around a little in the run up to this big event....
