One Pot Per Day exhibition lunchtime talk

One Pot Per Day exhibition lunchtime talk

Date: Tuesday 24 January 2017 | Time: 1.15-1.45pm | Location: Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology | Price: FREE | Age group: ALL

Come to this lunchtime talk from artist Kate Keara Pelen, on her exhibition One Pot Per Day at the Petrie Museum this winter.

“Every day, for 365 days, from January 1st to December 31st 2015, I produced one soft hand-made vessel using simple crochet techniques. The project came out of the desire to find a manageable way of sustaining a commitment to my creative output during a period when extensive time in the studio was not going to be possible. The vessel-like shape emerged naturally out of freeform experiments in spiral and tubular forms. The notion of a ‘pot’ allowed for sufficient variety and flexibility in the making to keep my attention for twelve months, while still functioning as a coherent collection or family of objects.” Artist Kate Keara Pelen.

Join us to view Kate's work, One Pot Per Day, in-situ in our pottery gallery in the Petrie Museum from 29 November to 30 January.
