SHOTGUN

27 NOVEMBER - 23 DECEMBER 2016

ALLISON WEIGHTMAN

 

‘Shotgun’ features brand new work from renowned ceramic artist Allison Weightman. Allison has exhibited throughout Scotland and has been interested in exploring the destructive force of gunfire both physically and emotionally since being shot in the leg as a child. 

Her clay vessels are shot with a twelve bore shotgun before the work is ‘fired’ carrying a hallmark of power that runs through everything she produces as an artist.

"The energy in Allison's ceramics is evident in forms with a strong classical reference, beautifully constructed and glazed - calm and controlled, or attacked and partially destroed to create work which is organic, elemental and challenging," said Barbara.
