Cynthia Valianti Corbett, Founder and Director of the Cynthia Corbett Gallery ‘In Conversation’ with artists collaborative Freya Bramble-Carter and Florence St. George.
We are delighted to present an inspiring In Conversation with two young emerging ceramicists, British artist Freya Bramble-Carter, who is represented by Cynthia Corbett Gallery and British Bahamas-based artist Florence St. George.
Art Miami 2022 will mark both Freya and Florence’s debut at this prestigious art fair. The collaborative series presented is entitled ‘The Mermaids Purse’. This collection of ceramics from Freya Bramble-Carter and Florence St. George was born of their mutual love of the Bahamian land and sea. Using clay that they foraged three years ago from East End Grand Bahama, they patiently waited for the clay to mature so that they could work with it. In early 2022 Freya returned to the Islands and the two potters worked night and day for two weeks collaborating on this collection also using finer clay to complement their new clam formed vases. Their studio is a space filled with love, fresh thoughts and a buzz of imaginative energy as they create and play with the clay together. These vases reflect the waves that crash on the sandy shores of the Bahamas, the petals and leaves that grow from the inside of the pot’s belly are like tongues, the voices echoing their journey. The pots are delicate, feminine yet strong and proud.
This In Conversation will allow guests to dive deeper into their collaborative practice by listening to both artists Florence (in person) and Freya (via Zoom), on what inspired them to join together in the creation of these beautiful and intricate ceramic pieces.
Cynthia Valianti Corbett comments on the exciting debut.
“We are thrilled to be presenting at Art Miami this Bahamanian creation by these two innovative and talented emerging British artists. Although the Bahamas is only a 45min flight from Miami, the country has a unique environment, climate and culture that these two artists used as inspiration for their collaborative series. We hope the Miami audience will embrace and fall in love with this incredible body of work. As a champion of emerging talent, Cynthia Corbett Gallery has been exhibiting at Art Miami for over a decade.”
