Event description

Description

A rare chance to see inside one of Portobello's old standing pottery kilns.

Artist, Jenny Pope is currently undergoing a residency with the Art Walk on 'Material Land' researching many of the working conditions in the kilns as well as the elemental process of firing. For 2019 she is creating a sculptural installation along the promenade by Westbank, that references the noxious processes that were once rife in Portobello. She has created wind activated objects that allude to the fumes, smells and invisible air born dangers present in the old industries around Figgate Burn, drawing upon 4 colours: Prussian Blue, Blood Red, Mustard and White Lead that were once produced in Portobello. Installation in situ 7 to 15 September.

Come along and hear more about her residency and research into the industries. For 2020 Jenny will be developing an installation for inside one of the kilns.
