Congregation: gathering or collection of people or things

A collaboration of work by two ceramic artists Katherine Staples and Sonya Viney. Intriguingly both artists have similar inspirations, yet their working techniques and outcomes are normally very different. Katherine and Sonya have joined forces to fulfil their own brief to plan, design and create an installation within The Congregational Church, Blaby, Leicestershire.This site specific installation ‘Congregation’ speaks of the essence of place not necessarily the building, but of the people and their value. It is an inspirational collection of hundreds of handmade ceramic vessels celebrating an extraordinary sense of equality, inspired by religion and a place of worship but not religious, it is about the people; the congregation.Staying true to the identity of the church with its poor beginnings and minimal decoration, the vessels are plain on the outside whilst the interior of the vessels glimmer, with a colour palette of glazes inspired by water and the sea bed. Individuality comes from what is on the inside, strength and power comes from the multiple. Every piece has a value, each piece is unique and the accumulation adds to the whole.
