International ceramicist Sandy Brown holds talk and demo for craft students
On the 21 January international artist and ceramicist Sandy Brown visited the college to give a talk and demonstration to the BA (Hons) Contemporary Crafts students.
After the demo students had the opportunity to speak with Sandy and ask questions about her work.
Her work is in public collections at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Shipley Art Gallery and the British Embassy in Tokyo to name a few.
She has also been the subject of two major Arts Council funded solo touring shows; and has had numerous shows in the USA, Japan, Holland, Germany, South Africa and Australia.
Alongside her own work she also lectures and holds workshops in art centres around the world.
She is famous for her spontaneous, passionate use of clay and colours and in the demo made a large ceramic piece.
“She was so positive at the workshop and she generated great enthusiasm, our students said that after this experience they felt much more confident to pursue a career in crafts,” explains Maria Psiliagkou, Ceramics Workshop Coordinator.
