Enshrine - Tiffany Singh
Reappraisal A curious survey of pots and vase forms with Bronwynne Cornish and Denys Watkins, Finn Ferrier, Peter Gibson Smith, Julia Holderness, Nate Savill, Florence Weir, Lauren Winstone and the Wednesday Night Pottery Group.
Enshrine, the latest meditative and multi-sensory installation by Tiffany Singh is influenced by the teachings of Anicca, or impermanence and the repeating cycle of life, death and rebirth. This is played out literally and metaphorically within the work with concepts and mediums recycled, refreshed and reformatted from past installations and exhibitions. Echoing the continuous rejuvenating state of nature, natural materials sourced and harvested locally from Corban Estate Arts Centre will be incorporated into the hanging offerings and regularly revitalise the domestic sized shrine works.

Reappraisal: a pots and vessels show
Artists include: Bronwynne Cornish and Denys Watkins, Finn Ferrier, Peter Gibson Smith, Julia Holderness, Nate Savill, Florence Weir, Lauren Winstone and the Wednesday Night Pottery Group.
Knitting, blacksmithing, paper construction and ceramics are some of the methods used to create this curious survey of pots and vase forms made by contemporary artists. In surprising ways the traditional form and function of this classical object are re-examined.
