Colour Lab

Off Centre's June display features spectacular colour effects in contemporary ceramics and glass.  Cherie Nicholson's pit-fired ceramics reveal a spectrum of soft, natural hues, while Gay McKinnon's polished glass blocks and platters exploit both transparent, saturated colours and strong opaques.  The exhibition continues until Sunday 1st July.
