We've been helping renowned Ceramic Artist Sandy Brown with the setup for a multimedia presentation she is preparing for an evening event at Appledore Arts. Sandy is showcasing the behind-the-scenes slides and video from her recent commission by famous auction house Sotherby's for a ceramic Temple that is currently in the gardens at Chatsworth house for an exhibition. The pictures show how the Temple was build in her studio with a wooden infrastructure and over 5000 hand made ceramic tiles and how it was then transported and rebuilt at Chatsworth house. Quite a feat of engineering in itself to build the free-standing structure using the boat building skills of an Appledore local carpenter but quite another feat to make such a beautiful and practical 'Temple for the self'.
