Isaac Button Country Potter Film Night / Community Event: Dean Clough, Halifax. November 2016
As part of the Dean Clough show, I worked with Vic Allen (the Dean Clough Arts Coordinator) to arrange a special film night, using the ongoing show as an occasion to project the classic film Isaac Button Country Potter, by John Anderson and Robert Fournier (1965). Over 110 people came to this event, many bringing their pots and stories of the man himself….. The film was shown under licence from Yorkshire Film Archive.

Lost and Found: MA Show at Sion Hill College of Art and Design, Bath Spa University. September 2017
This show took a highly edited collection from my final MA project; inspired by an exploration of Soil Hill, Calderdale, the remains of Isaac Button’s old workshop – and by the old pancheon bought in the Piece Hall, Halifax in 1987. The project involved landscape archaeology, photography, digging local clays (with permission), meeting incredible people with stories and connections to my work, ceramic testing and experimentation, work with local bakeries and drawing.
