On Wednesday 14 December 2016, 11am–6pm come and view a collection of 55 pots in Project Space, all thrown by Nita Nathwani and created over nine weeks. Visitors are also invited to participate in a drawing activity, which will feed into the next stage of the project – a collaborative set of pots made by Nita and partly decorated using select drawings by the public.
Throwing pots on the wheel is an activity usually only undertaken by Nita in sporadic bouts, so she set herself a challenge to spend a concentrated amount of time throwing pots on the wheel. The aim is to create blank canvases and new opportunities for fine art and sculptural work.
These were all offered to the public to make a pledge for a specific amount without knowing what would come out of the kiln – it was an act of trust. Many of the pots have been pledged for, but some are still available for purchase on the day.
This is a one day event to celebrate the pots all together and to make them available for collection.
Nita is a member of Design Factory and the Northamptonshire Guild of Designer Craftsmen. She is also Associate Educator and Education Co-ordinator with Fermynwoods Contemporary Art.
