Meet Rosie, our new studio artist
Hi, my name is Roseanne Connolly and I just wanted to introduce myself as the latest addition to 318 ceramics.
I’ve just graduated from Chelsea College of Art where I achieved a 1st class BA (Hons) degree in fine art, making human and animal figurative sculpture in ceramics. I love using clay, it’s a really important part of my art practice, which is why I’m so pleased to have been given the opportunity to become a resident artist here at 318 Ceramics. I moved in properly at the beginning of July and have already been busy in the studio making. It’s a fantastic space with so much history and a great place to develop my skills and create new work. It’s been really good meeting the team and I’m looking forward to becoming a part of the creative community here in Farnham.
Already I’ve been to a conference called, ‘Ceramics and the Expanded Field: Behind the scenes at the Museum’ at the University of Westminster. It was a fascinating three days with a notable line-up of speakers from the field of clay and ceramics including Mella Shaw and Phoebe Cummings. This area is where my work is currently focused, so it was brilliant to be able to hear some of my favourite artists talk about it!
