Mark Hearld’s Pigeons July 25 2016

As part of our Editions & Objects exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (which runs until the end of October 2016) Mark Hearld has produced a small edition of ceramic pigeons especially for the event.

The pigeons have been modelled by Mark using clay and then slipcast at the Potteries in Stoke-on-Trent. Mark has then used a mixture of glazes, oxides and stains to decorate each piece, all of which take inspiration from Pablo Picasso’s pigeon paintings.

At the time of writing, a small number of these uniquely decorated pieces are available. /// UPDATE: All of Mark Hearld's pigeons have now sold - sign up for our e-mail newsletter for news of future ceramic works from Mark ///
