Verve captures perfectly the zest, intensity and sparkle of this exhibition. It features the work of four artists, all of whom are interested in exploring colour, pattern and texture in their work. The textile artist Angela Forte has made a series of hand-woven tapestries especially for this exhibition which sing of her joy in colour and pattern. Circles, roads and stars are fixed in the weave and speak vividly of a lifetime of journeys and contemplation.

Vivid colour and strong shapes are also obvious in the work of the other artists, all creating three-dimensional work in different mediums. Gráinne Watts creates wonderful, daringly coloured and patterned ceramic pieces that will seduce you. Cecilia Moore uses a variety of materials in her practice. The pieces in this exhibition are intriguing, patinated vessels in silver and copper based metals, made using the technique of “raising”. Texture and colour are also central to the work of Paula Stokes. Her off-centre glass vessels capture colour in a very concentrated form; this is further enhanced by the sandblasted finish which give them an unexpected softness.
The Blue Egg Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday between 11.00am and 5.30 pm or by appointment.
