Open House – Dorcas Pennyfather, Gabrielle Jessica Frazer

20 Ninian Road, CF23 5EF  Sat 21 - Sun 22 Oct, 12pm - 5 pm Disability Access: No Family Friendly: No Gabrielle Jessica Frazer Gabrielle produces individual sculptural ceramic pieces which explore her interest in life, nature, and the ceramic process. She hand builds her pieces, bisque fires them then uses a smoke firing technique; no glazes or pigments are used, all the colours are produced in the firing. It is not until the magic moment of the  kiln opening that the result is seen. Gabrielle then burnishes and waxes the sculptures to produce a rich lustrous finish. gabriellejessicafrazer.com Dorcas Pennyfather Dorcas uses mixed media to tell tales about her own and other family histories.  Her fascination with the knowledge that she is a product of many ancestors has led her to explore the occupations of her forefathers and their lifestyles, especially the women. Through her work she invites others to wonder about their own past. dorcaspennyfather.wordpress.com/
