Future Makers 2016

Every year Manchester Craft & Design Centre host an exhibition titled Future Makers to celebrate talented new makers who graduated the previous summer. Each studio can invite a maker they deem one to watch and I am very excited to have invited ceramicist, Josie Seymour-Jones who graduated from Hereford College of Arts. She will be the first Future Maker I have selected for my Studio/Shop, and I cant wait to see the work arriving next week. If you visited the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair last October, you may have seen her work there already. You are welcome to come and view Josie’s work (that she is busy making at the moment!) from its launch on Thursday 25th February (6pm to 8pm). There will be around 11 other Future Makers exhibited around the building.

Future Makers runs until Sunday 29th May 2016.

“I work in porcelain to create ceramics with subtle surface qualities

Treating the clay as a canvas, I approach the work as if it were a painting, building up layers of colour to create a pictorial composition

Observing traces and marks in the landscape, the pieces are made in a way which reflects the delicate nature of the porcelain

I am a graduate of Hereford College of Arts in Contemporary Design Crafts, and currently work from my hometown in north Wales”
