Creating the yellow brick road

  • Comment

As part of the 'Ceramics Millennium Arts Festival', an international conference and symposium exploring the links between art, architecture, architectural ceramics and industry was held at Wolverhampton University in July.

The potential of brickwork in art and architecture was admirably demonstrated by the architect Tim Ronalds in his presentation 'Swimming Against the Tide', which explained the development of the conical brickwork structures of his new Landmark Theatre on the front at Illfracombe (above). The artistic potential of brickwas demonstrated by an amusing and colourful presentation by artist David Mach whose sculpture, Train, is the largest work of art in brick in the world and was Supreme Award winner in the 1998 Brick Awards.

The conference was organised by Wolverhampton University and was supported by sponsorship from a number of BDA member companies.
