Materials of Resistance
Exhibition Catalogue for Clare Thornton’s Materials of Resistance, at Plymouth Arts Centre. The exhibition of Clare Thornton’s work explored her longstanding interest in folding and falling and its new means of expression through ceramics and print.

Thornton produced a sculptural installation comprising works that adorned the interior spaces of Plymouth Arts Centre, employing coiled, extruded clay and draped, printed pieces to explore time and pressure upon materials teetering on the edge of collapse. The curious, repetitive forms and motifs refer back to the body, a body seeking to be strong yet flexible in uncertain times.

The book reflects notions of transformation and transition that are present in her work with ceramics. High quality paper stocks hand-over to inexpensive, utility stocks throughout the book, and gradients and colour bars are in flux throughout the publication.
