Gillie Nicholls, a highly regarded sculptress from Staffordshire has unveiled her latest statement piece which will feature at The British Ceramics Bi-annual Fringe.
The as yet untitled artwork depicts in her own words, "A Stoke Bloke, sat in the clouds, accompanied by his faithful Staffordshire Bull Terrier". The piece contains the line "Drawn aloft by the voice of a lyre". Gillie explained that she feels that the average resident of Stoke-on-Trent will have voted for Brexit, believing it would lead to a better economic future for the nation. She emphasises the promises made by the Prime Minister, but now the stark realities are starting to hit home and that the population has been "drawn by the voice of a lyre" (sic)
The British Ceramics Bi-annual Fringe runs from 11th - 17th September 2021. Details are available at www.madeinstokeontrent.com
