Phoebe Cummings

Working for and with Phoebe on her commissioned ceramic installation at the National Museum of Wales was such a great and inspiring opportunity. Phoebe was given just over a week of split days to install her work, to see the time frame, materials, tools, space and electricity needed for the work showed how much organisation needs to be considered.

Me and Rhiannon helped firstly by marbling air drying clay and porcelain to make clay balls and clay grass for the cardboard box scenes as well as applying slip to the tile walls to cover any blue foam on show and adding more clay powder for texture.

As well as working on the installation we had the opportunity to see the Fragile? exhibition being curated around us and understanding the process of work.

I hope to carry on with extra work for artists in the future.
