The Fire Rises Twice - exhibition invitation


The Museum of East Asian Art, Bath, 10 July - 18 September 2000

'The Fire Rises Twice' was an exhibition of work by students and staff from both the undergraduate and postgraduate ceramics courses at UWE. The students went to the museum and handled a range of ancient artefacts from the collection's Chinese exhibits. Both the student pots and the exhibits which inspired them are on display.

The pot illustrated above was made by Paul Sandammeer, a first year student on the MA, Ceramics: Making & Archiving. The images below feature work by two of the exhibitors: more images will be available soon.

With thanks to Michelle Morgan at the Museum for all her help.
