    Virginia's ceramics are an eclectic amalgamation of nostalgic form and imagery, transforming the ordinary past by drawing on a wide range of domestic traditions.

    Her handmade pieces range from teapots to jewellery, and she also creates one-off pieces that incorporate precious stones, metal and found objects.

    Her combination of slip casting and hand building techniques creates her signature style. She makes reference to historical wares including the familiar blue and white stripes of Cornish Ware as well as industrial plumbing and Victorian fabrics. The resulting pieces are eclectic and precious with a playful humour yet at the same time are ordinary reminding us of that bygone era when afternoon tea was a serious business.

    Virginia lives and works in the Wiltshire town of Corsham.

    City living can be an eye-opening experience. Any person who has lived in a city has had a crash course in life.

    The city never sleeps. It is expensive and noisy with busy streets and overcrowded tube rides. Yet, it is vibrant, surprising and energetic. City life is inspiring in its diversity and rich in history, architecture, arts and culture. The city is full of opportunity and a sense of endless possibility. Living in a city can be a love-hate relationship that often, one cannot imagine living without.

    The exhibition presents work by Mychael Barratt, Clare Caulfield, Helen Chatterton, Janet Curley Cannon, John Duffin, Raewyn Harrison, Colin Moore, Nick Tankard, Chris Wood, and many more.
