This past spring, DC was host to Artomatic's International Glass and Clay show. This groundbreaking exhibit featured works by artists from the Sister Cities of Washington, DC and Sunderland, England. 
Philippa Whiteside, one of the fabulous UK ceramicists, was invited to return to do an international artists residency with us at Flux Studios. We are very excited to welcome her to Flux for the next eight weeks!
Pip hard at work her first week at Flux!

Philippa Whiteside's work at the International Glass & Clay 2013 show.
Philippa graduated from Sunderland University in 2010 with a BA Hons in Glass and Ceramics. She was awarded a 12 month scholarship withCreative Cohesion, supported by Sunderland City Council, and later was elected a Director of Creative Cohesion. Philippa's studio is based at Creative Cohesion. Her work often references text and letters, and she also experiments with surface decoration and texture, playing with porcelain's capabilities and natural beauty.
