Helen Simmonds @ Beaux Arts, Bath

10 October 2020 - 21 November 2020

A collection of work by Helen Simmonds, that feature selections from the artist’s collection of small ceramics, bottles and enamelled vessels.  The jug and ladle are recognisably Victorian;  other preferred objects are the oriental porcelain cups and vases, their surfaces decorated with musicians, dancers and temple visitors. These various  objects are beloved,  imbued with significance as heirlooms or gifts, as well as their whispered depictions of other worlds.   At times the pottery and enamel shimmer among the shadows with their soft china-blue and light orange detailing. Other plates and bowls slice and upset the background  hush with a humming crescent or blazing splash of irridescent saffron glaze.
