We were up and on the road early on Monday, to take a trip up to Cambridge, for a spot of shopping, and to visit Cambridge Contemporary Art gallery. They currently have an exhibition of the work of Marie Prett, from Singing Soul Gallery.
Marie makes beautiful figurative ceramics, often inspired by her loves of English Bull Terriers, and the circus. The solo show is on until the 23rd of March, and features ceramics, prints and paintings by Marie, around the theme of Travelling Circus.
Here's a few quick shots of some of the pieces in the gallery show.
I've been a big fan of Marie's work for a few years, and even took a week long course at her studio in Kent in 2012. Sadly I only came home with a greetings card this time, but I still plan to adopt a Bully one day........ I'm also increasingly falling in love with the ponies.......
If you can get to Cambridge to see the show, you really should! There are some spectacular large "tableau" pieces, featuring found objects, and multiple highly detailed ceramic characters. There's a wonderful elephant, a giraffe, an aerial acrobat in a cage, and a tiny bully in the caravan, sleeping on his back :0) I really wish I'd taken more photos, to tempt you to visit, but I do guarantee the work will make you smile!
If you can't make it to Cambridge, you can keep bang up to date with all the news from Marie's studio on Facebook.
