Fiamma Colonna Montagu
night and light and the half light
4 November 2017 to 21 January 2018
We are excited to show the stunning ceramic sculpture of Fiamma Colonna Montagu for the first time.
Monumental in scale and impact, Fiamma’s sculpture is made in ceramic using high-fired porcelain and stoneware with cobalt and iron oxides to create her subtle natural colours and finishes and strong simple rocklike forms. Now living in West Dorset, Fiamma Colonna Montagu grew up in London. She studied at Bryanston, a co-educational liberal arts school in Dorset (where Richard Batterham also discovered his love of pottery some forty years earlier), followed by Oxford University. Since then she has worked as a film maker and ceramic artist specialising in large scale ceramic work and installations.
Working with artist Paul Cummins she was the Producer for the acclaimed ‘Blood Swept Fields’ installation of 888,246 ceramic poppies at the Tower of London in commemoration of the centenary of the start of WW1. Works in her Portal series of ceramic sculptures which will be showing at Sladers Yard, have been shown at Knebworth House. She has also shown at the New Art Centre, Roche Court. Her sculpture is in private collections in Britain and US.
Fiamma is happy to visit to discuss ideas for site-specific sculptures. Her vertical forms, spheres and rings provide structure in outdoor spaces, framing views and leading the eye.
