‘SURFACE AREA’

An exhibition by Melanie Keevil

Wednesday 5th August – Saturday 29th August

Melanie graduated from Buckinghamshire College in 1990 with a degree in Ceramics and now works from her garden studio in Kings Heath, Birmingham and exhibits across the UK.

Her August exhibition will contain abstract ceramic and stoneware wall panels which are a personal response to different landscapes. These panels are layered with richly coloured slips and glazes and then stoneware fired to 1260°.

Some pieces evoke the rich landscapes of Provence and Barcelona drawing upon hilltop towns, mountains, cypress trees and weathered buildings. The surface textures, colours and proportions of stone and plaster walls, sun bleached shutters and doors are documented and abstracted in her latest work.

Closer to home, the rock formations and coastlines of the Cornish and Welsh landscapes are also represented.
