Townhouse Presents Layers an exhibition of work by

Rosamund Coady and Reed Wilson


Rosamund Coady and Reed Wilson join forces in the exhibition Layers at Town House, in Fournier Street, Spitalfields. A ceramicist and an artist using ordinary objects to examine the world around them. Each artist works intensely with her chosen medium, building in layers and then re-working until the finished piece is almost sculptural in quality. In so doing, they redefine ordinary things, so that we look at them anew.
