At cambridge contemporary crafts we are rounding off the summer by turning the spotlight on our own beautiful city. The featured artist for our end of summer exhibition is ceramicist Daniel Wright, who has created a collection of tableware which is entirely Cambridge-themed.
Daniel creates hand thrown earthenware pieces that are decorated with white and coloured slips and screen printed drawings in black enamel. He likes to combine traditional and modern techniques in a contemporary way.
Daniel has drawn inspiration from the English slipware and 1950s Ridgeware ceramics, particularly the ‘Homemaker’ range. He has also been influenced by the Italian designer Piero Fornasetti.
We are excited to have his exclusive Cambridge range on display this summer, which has been designed especially for cambridge contemporary crafts. It features imagery of the city’s iconic buildings such as the Round Church, Peterhouse College, Gonville & Caius College and Kings College, as well as typical sights including bicycles and punts and houseboats on the river.
This free exhibition runs from 8th Aug – 2nd Sept 2015. We are open Monday to Friday from 10am to 6pm, Saturday from 10am to 7.30pm and Sunday from 11am to 5pm.
