The Language of Clay – Seen and unseen

‘Ingrid Murphy plays with the conventions of ceramic practice. Her works invite shared experience rather than purely aesthetic contemplation.’ Martina Margetts.

Connectivity is crucial to Ingrid Murphy, between people and places and across time. Her explorations provoke and surprise us as she marries traditional ceramic processes with creative technologies. Be it the view from inside a teapot or the sounds from the streets of Jaipur, her pieces connect us to different perspectives and stories. Seen and unseen is a witty expansion of the languages and qualities of clay. Ceri Jones, series curator

The Language of Clay is a series of national touring exhibitions organised by Mission Gallery in collaboration with Ruthin Craft Centre, funded by ACW.
