Following their successful exhibition last year at Thistle Hall, Sophie Perkins and Shayn Wills have rejoined forces to present 'Pinched', a second show of ceramics and paintings. 'Pinched' refers to both the pinching technique of creating pottery and the time pinched from daily life in order to create art.

Sophie's functional ceramics include wheel thrown, hand built and pinched pottery, often stamped and engraved with words from her own poetry. Shayn's acrylic wash paintings depict daily scenes from Cuba Street, and along with a series of botanical images, reflect his background in animation.

This promises to be a vibrant second show with original, affordable art. More information available at the facebook page, Sophie Perkins Ceramics.
