Jane Perryman is an internationally recognised ceramic artist, writer, photographer and filmmaker. Her latest body of work, Containing Time, is her most ambitious project to date. This multilayered exhibition is more than a physical installation; it is a journey, a collaboration, a collection of objects, sounds, thoughts and stories.
Perryman has created this new body of work that has transformed the vessel to become a record of time and place. Encompassing a year’s sojourn, her ideas examine interlocking themes of materials, environment, time and journeys. Senses working in harmony, organic and holistic, her inspiration resonates from the simple pleasures of daily life. The fifty-two resulting vessels, weekly journal entries, poems, photographs and rubbings taken from actual objects constitute a celebratory year-long cycle to the vessel and to life.
This is a national touring exhibition in collaboration with The National Centre for Craft & Design and Gracefield Arts Centre.
