Exhibition: Pour Me - Sat 18 Mar 2017 -Sun 07 May 2017
Main Gallery, open 10am-5.30pm. FREE
In celebration of what is visually thought of as one of the simplest forms, Pour Me
applauds the humble jug.
The exhibition highlights how deceptively difficult it can be to make a jug; makers must consider balance and weight. Will it pour? Is the handle strong enough to withstand the weight of the liquid? Is the handle pulled, extruded or cast? Jugs can also be vessels to hold other things or be interpreted in different ways, and feature in many 2D artists’ compositions. Pour Me explores how the jug can be interpreted in many ways, and in many different materials; tableware, vessels, sculpture made from textiles, metals, silver, enamel, glass, wood and ceramics.
Open daily, free- 10am-5.30pm.
