‘Flux’ by Exeter’s Chris Speyer has opened in The Paddock. It is a powerful display of large-scale environmental ceramic sculptures by one of the South West’s leading ceramic sculptors.
In this triad of clay megaliths, ‘Fold’ and ‘Flow’ have undergone the irreversible metamorphosis of firing, clay transformed into enduring ceramic, but the third, ‘Ground’, which is being built here at Devon Sculpture Park from Bristol clay and local stones, will remain unfired, vulnerable to the elements, and allowed to weather back into the soil.
Chris’ environmentally inspired installation reminds us to be careful what we take out of the ground and that what we take out in the end finds its way back.
Chris has been a ceramicist for twenty years. His last six years have been focused on larger-scale sculptures. Chris exhibits in London and the South West.
There are smaller works from Chris Speyer also showing in The Robert Adam Gallery.
