Expressions in Blue: Monumental Porcelain by Felicity Aylieff

Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanic Art, Kew, Richmond, London, TW9 3AE

Acclaimed artist Felicity Aylieff brings a major solo exhibition of monumental ceramics to Kew Gardens, London.

Aylieff is renowned for her longstanding collaborations with porcelain production workshops and artisan craftspeople in Jingdezhen, China – known as the ‘porcelain capital’ of the world.

Expressions in Blue will encompass a selection of works, including incredible 5 metre tall vases, all hand-thrown and hand-painted with cobalt oxides. Alongside the ‘new Ming’ vases will be a selection of colourful Fencai enamelled vessels, hand painted with stylised designs, inspired by the botanical illustrations Aylieff researched in the Shirley Sherwood Collection.
