Bow Porcelain


250year old Bow porcelain

Today was my first filming day on a new documentary supporting the exhibition Made in Bow at The Nunnery gallery in Bow, East London. I was at Park Primary School in Newham, filming a year five group who have been working with sculptor Helen Watson to produce their own versions of Bow Porcelain plates with designs of ‘value’ on them.  They were asked to think about what was important to them, and incorporate that into a design on a plate they’d bring out for their ‘best guest’ to use.  The completed plates will all enter a competition, judged by Nunnery Gallery Director, Rosamond Murdoch, who will choose which plates will form part of the Carmelite Cafe exhibition, to run concurrently with the main exhibition.

Over the next few weeks I will also be meeting with the three artists working in residency on the project to explore their new works in response to the Newham Archive Bow Porcelain pieces; the three artists are Felicity Hammond, Mathew Weir and Lizzie Cannon.
