Weston Park Museum's Picturing Sheffield gallery brings together local scenes and views of the city from the past 250 years. The displays reflect the changing face of Sheffield, from its industrial origins and lost landmarks right through to the familiar views we recognise today. See the videos below to delve into the practices of four artists featured in Picturing Sheffield: Emilie Taylor, Pete McKee, David Hepher, and Pete Clarke.
Sheffield-based ceramic artist Emilie Taylor talks about her large-scale ceramics which draw heavily on the post-industrial north of England and, in particular, estates in Sheffield that were originally built as utopias. Emilie talks us through her process of decorating a pot, how people engage with her work, and reminisces about painting with mops at Mappin Art Gallery (now Weston Park Museum) as a child.
