14 April – 18 May
Leah Jackson – Combinations
Combinations presents an exploration of domestic ware by Victorian ceramicist Leah Jackson. Drawing reference from her existing range of brightly coloured ceramics, Jackson examines our relationship to object and function through a new series of modular vessels – stacking and combining familiar domestic forms in uncanny compositions. Initiated by the seemingly endless interplay of form and colour in her studio practice, Combinations embraces the sculptural potential of the inhabited space and the objects used within it.
