What immediately attracted me to Sara Flynn’s pots, when I first saw them in County Cork in 2013, was the combination of the rather formal black exterior with the highly informal pinches and squeezes. They are extremely tactile and at the same time abstract and rather distant.
The above quote comes from an essay by The Duke of Devonshire, which will appear in our catalogue celebrating Irish-born sculptor and ceramicist, Sara Flynn. This exhibition of new work in porcelain and bronze will be Flynn’s fourth solo show at our gallery, and will be open until the 25th of October 2018.
We are also delighted to announce that many works from the exhibition will join notable collections, including:
Two works, acquired for the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum. Purchase funded by Christopher M. Gorman-Evans.
One acquired by The National Museum of Ireland, Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks, purchased through the Contemporary Collection of Design & Craft, a joint initiative of The National Museum of Ireland and Design & Crafts Council of Ireland.
Two important works acquired by Loewe.
