The Leeds College of Art bunch, Richard Green, Liam Guest, Sarah Hawkins, Claire Holyoake, James Nicholl, Joe Roberts, Brendan Stokes and their tutor Sheila Gaffney culminated their week-long bronze residency with Senior Technician Eden Jolly at SSW with a lengthy pour on Friday the 2nd of November.
The team were pouring late into into the evening while the first snow-fall of winter was coming down outside the workshops. Senior Technician Eden led the pour while Technical Placement Ben Burtenshaw assisted. The pour resulted in a fantastic array of bronze poo, condoms, cannabis ‘baggies’, pills, elegant slender smoking pipes, miniature dishevelled council house facades and figurative pieces – Leeds seems to have a theme going on here!
We always love getting to know everyone and having them as part of the family for the week. We look forward to seeing the Leeds students next year for an equally wonderful residency at SSW!
