Liverpool Biennial Commission
I was asked by the Liverpool Biennial to help produce several ceramic pieces for one of their international artists, Jumama Manna who was selected to take part in this years' Biennial . Jumana is based in Berlin and shipped over a large plaster mould which I used to construct several bisque fired pieces. She then came over to the studio to glaze them and after firing , arranged them for display at Tate Liverpool. It was a challenging and enjoyable collaboration, picture below of the finished piece.
The Biennial is on until October .http://www.biennial.com/2016
