Wednesday 23 November- Sunday 4 December 2022
Open 10am – 4pm every day

Sally Dorrity and Tracy Florance return to the gallery with Curvilinear bringing together unique hand-built ceramics and contemporary photography. Sally works in stoneware to hand-build her pots, using either crank or black clays to create small, medium and large pieces, both functional and sculptural. These are then fired in an electric kiln. Her work is frost-resistant and is therefore suitable for use both indoors and outside. In her studio in Oxford, Sally constantly experiments with different shapes, new glazes and glaze combinations, taking inspiration from traditional classic forms as well as from the lines, tones and textures of nature. Her ceramics and skills are continually evolving and progressing, as she pursues her fascination with form and texture. Tracy’s interest in photography began many years ago, when her husband bought her a darkroom kit for Christmas. This inspired her to take evening classes in basic black and white photography where she worked on three City and Guilds modules all of which were awarded distinctions. Tracy has travelled widely, and takes her camera with her wherever she goes, hoping to capture the essence of the places she visits. She is drawn to interior and external architecture, in which she attempts to capture patterns and shapes that others might miss. Tracy and Sally have shown their work individually for some years at Art Fairs, and take part regularly in local arts trails. Following the great success of their first collaboration at the Fountain Gallery, Hampton Court in January 2018 they have exhibited together regularly, including shows at the Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington, Craft in Focus at RHS Wisley and The Lightbox in Woking.
Sally’s ceramics and Tracy’s photographs complement each other perfectly, with Sally’s glazes and
Tracy’s images of reflections in glass and water often echoing each other in form and colour. sally dorrity
