The Petrie Museum are delighted to invite you to join them for the Private View of their new exhibition, One Pot Per Day, by Slade School of Fine Art graduate Kate Keara Pelen, on Tuesday 29 November from 6-8pm.
“Every day, for 365 days, from January 1st to December 31st 2015, I produced one soft hand-made vessel using simple crochet techniques. The project came out of the desire to find a manageable way of sustaining a commitment to my creative output during a period when extensive time in the studio was not going to be possible. The vessel-like shape emerged naturally out of experiments in spiral and tubular forms. The notion of a ‘pot’ allowed for sufficient variety and flexibility in the making to keep my attention for twelve months, while still functioning as a coherent collection or family of objects.”
Kate Keara Pelen
Come and meet the artist and see how her practice complements our collections of ancient Egyptian pots. Drinks will be served in the main museum space.
The exhibition will run from 30 Nov 2016 – 30 Jan 2017 at the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology.
