This is the moment the Covid & Beyond project have been waiting for!
The pottery pitcher was conceived during full lockdown by the group, and now that the clay has been delivered to artist Gill Butler, the ceramic sculpture can finally start to materialise.
This design and concept are based around a large vessel being thrown, fired and then being fragmented into different pieces.
These pieces will be distributed throughout the local residents of Par Bay to be decorated with imagery and words to represent the community’s feelings about physical distancing, Lockdown and all that comes with it.
These pieces will then be collected back together Gill and reassembled, celebrating the strength of our community reuniting and as a beacon of hope to those who are still very much restricted by the effects to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
