The Fireworks Pottery Studios in Cardiff is a cooperative of makers, sharing studio space and specialising in the field of ceramics. Each year the Fireworks group offer two graduate placements for ceramic artists who have recently completed their studies at BA or MA level. Craft in the Bay is also showcasing the most recent graduate artists who have just completed their twelve month residency in Oriel 2. With the support of the other resident artists and use of the specialist pottery equipment within the studios, Carol Feehan and Louise Hall have been able to push their work further since completing their studies in 2012.
An exhibition catalogue is available and will look at not only individual inspirations and working methods but also the influence that being part of a cooperative has had on professional practice.
The exhibition runs until 3 November at Craft in the Bay, The Makers Guild in Wales, The Flourish, Lloyd George Avenue, Cardiff, CF10 4QH. For further information visit http://www.makersguildinwales.org.uk/
