Crossings: Adam Buick and the Legend of Tresaith featuring work by Valerie James, Marged Pendrell & Meri Wells

Adam Buick potter and film maker has developed this innovative project, based on the story of seven Irish princesses sent across the sea to land at Tresaith and marry Welshmen. Tresaith (town of seven) is part of Ceredigion Heritage Coastline.

Adam made seven moon-jars that were launched from Ireland to sail across the Irish Sea to hopefully land safely in Ceredigion. Their journey was recorded by tracking systems and charted on a webpage.

Adam made a film about the project called Place of Seven that will be shown alongside maps and the surviving moon jars as part of the exhibition.
