News from Penny Withers
I’m busy preparing for my first fair of the year; the inaugural Contemporary Ceramics Fair at the Hepworth Gallery, Wakefield. I have been restocking and making plenty of new work over the winter and will have the very best on show here.
The Hepworth is an exciting and inspiring new gallery set in beautifully proportioned architecture. Their print fairs and mixed contemporary craft fairs in the Caulder building have been very well attended and successful for artists and organisers alike. Now they are testing the idea of a fair dedicated to contemporary ceramics. Please come along to see the very best from the region and beyond.

Photo session, making Freeforms, with Ben Boswell. It was a privilege to work with Ben who is such an expert in photographing ceramics in the making. I was inspired to return to the Freeforms for their dramatic visual effects and in doing so discovering possibilities to develop them further.
