Clay Bodies I is the first of two exhibitions which explore the complex relationship between clay and bodies, both figurative and geographical. In this exhibition, clay and its relationship to the human body is explored through a number of works. These pieces have been chosen to represent the different ways in which the body can be expressed through ceramics.
 
Examples by artists Teresa Bergen, Shary Boyle, Allison Britton, Michael Flynn, Alma and Ernst Lorenzen, Walter Ostrom, Krystyna Sadowska and Konrad Sadowski, and Brother Thomas point towards a deeper understanding of the relationship between the medium of clay and the body.
