Join a small group of artists exhibiting together for the 2018 Open Studio weekend at Sue Paraskeva’s Ryde workshop and creative space.
22a Green Street will be showcasing a selection of porcelain, contemporary textiles, jewellery and abstract paintings.
Sue Paraskeva will be showing her finely thrown porcelain and stoneware tableware. Clays are mixed to create three colours and bowls are altered to sit at a slight angle creating a contemporary feel using traditional techniques. All work is simply glazed inside, unglazed outside and reduction fired to 1260oc in a gas kiln.
Seconds, past pieces and preview of new works in progress will be exhibited and available to purchase during the open weekend.
Abi Wheeler uses traditional textile construction methods such as quilting and hand knitting to create contemporary pieces. Abi’s work explores constructed artefacts made in coastal communities. Her latest pieces explore the lifejacket as a symbol of safety in precarious times.
Lauren Griffiths is an award-winning jewellery designer, trained at the prestigious School of Jewellery, Birmingham,UK and founder of Little Joy Jewellery. Lauren’s ethos is simple; minimalist jewellery, mindfully made. Specialising in Fairtrade Jewellery created with meaning, materials are carefully selected and responsibly sourced with every piece made to order.
Laura Hathaway is a visual artist examining the properties and absorbency of pigments and oils against surfaces; focusing in on the effects of layering, opacities and manipulation.
Painting directly onto a surface with her hands, the physicality of pressing, smearing and transforming ink, glass and paper captures feelings and movements. Probing expressive potential and the role of chance, the works transform through unexpected and accidental outcomes.
Laura will be showing a number of abstract paintings exploring expressive mark making selected in response to the space and artists exhibiting together at 22a Green Street.
