"A slab of pink stands on a shimmering gold base, its surface iced with globules of a glossy blue substance the colour of bubblegum and the look of buttercream. Nearby is a collection of smaller forms, all also brightly daubed like cakey stalagmites. One green mound is covered with blobs of red and gold that at first resemble fruit seeds, then acne spots or mould spores. Round the corner, a squid sprawls in an oily slick of ink, just feet away from a fragrant hill of vegetation punctuated by hybrid creatures: a child with a horse’s head; a girl emerging from tree. Aside from the vegetation, all these forms are created from clay. They, and 20 other ceramic sculptures, clusters and displays, are the strange objects making up Strange Clay, an exhibition exploring this most plastic and contradictory of mediums."
