We are delighted to present Waypoint; a solo exhibition of soda fired porcelain ceramics by Jack Doherty.
Originally curated by Sarah Frangleton, Waypoint was first exhibited during the St Ives September festival 2015 across three historic sites in St Ives; fishermen’s chapels and traditional places of refuge. By placing vessel forms within a specific site the intention was to create a thoughtful space in which to view the work with sensitivity to the context of place. The aim was to highlight the cultural heritage of the fishing community connecting visitors and local audiences with these historic landmarks and narratives of faith, courage and epic voyages. Jack Doherty has created a new family of work for The Scottish Gallery so that we can experience Waypoint in Edinburgh.
“I was born into a family of fishermen. As a child the harbour was the most fascinating place in my universe; a space charged with emotional content that shaped my world.” Jack Doherty, 2015
