A pair of far-flung moments in history set the conditions for the exhibition ‘Tender Brick: The Material Epiphanies of Peter Hawkesby’. The first was when Picasso used glue to make constructions that irrevocably altered the conception of sculpture as a form of ‘carving’ or ‘modelling’ of a singular form. The second is the audacious choice Hawkesby made during the mid 1970s to entirely dispense with the potter’s wheel and make ceramics by any other means.
