May Day, May Day, May Day - Emilie Taylor Exhibition Catalogue
Sheffield based ceramic artist, Emilie Taylor makes monumental pots using the English heritage craft of Slipware to interpret and represent post-industrial landscapes. Taylor's work combines studio ceramics with collaboration within the community to draw out local voices. Looking at May Day traditions, this exhibition will showcase a birch maypole installed in Rugby Art Gallery and Museum's circular exhibition space displaying an embroidered call to arms. Most of the artworks on display have been made during the various lockdown periods enforced by the Coronavirus Pandemic.
