St Saviour’s & St Olave’s School – Sculptures for Feet
15 December – 31 January 2018
Inspired by the visual richness of Southwark Cathedral, personal research into the theme ‘Objects of Desire’ and the work of fashion designers such as Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood, Year 10 students have worked with imagination to create these extraordinarily individual and original footwear designs. Students translated their designs into sculptural forms using clay and a range of hand building techniques. Their designs transformed and developed in response to the hands on experience of clay. Working on a larger than life scale gave opportunity for greater detail and has created a monumental presence to the sculptures. Surface decoration was added by pressing into the clay to create texture and by painting on coloured slips which were then cut or scratched into (sgraffito) to reveal the underlying clay body.
Can you spot a piece of Southwark Cathedral in these designs?
1 February - 30 April 2018
Morley College, near Waterloo London, was established in 1889 as the Morley Memorial College for Working Men and Women, with roots stretching back to a series of ‘Penny Lectures’ at the Old Vic. These have recently been resurrected. It’s one of the country’s oldest and largest specialist providers of adult education.
For this exhibition, the college will be displaying three seperate projects:
A selection of ceramic objects demonstrating a range of techniques and glaze materials made by various classes at the college.
A selection of Peckham cut bowls by artist Keith Lewis which are made in response to local knife crime.
A collaborative project between the college Ceramics, Jewellery and Printmaking departments based on artist Kazimir Malevich's, The Black Square, an iconic painting from 1915.
