An exquisite exhibition from Chalk Plaster's Ffion and Steven Blench celebrating the remarkable qualities of the materials they've come to know so intimately

Ffion and Steven root their practice in the rich history and traditions of plain and decorative plasterwork. Their work encompasses both historic restoration and contemporary design.

UNEARTHED: Material Experiments, Gypsum, Clay & Lime is a playful exploration of traditional plastering materials.  Whether used as binders, aggregates or pigments, these three basic materials can be used to create a huge range of plasters with their own unique properties.  Works on display are produced from raw and recycled materials.

This exhibition is part of the TALKS AT THE LANE Season 2 which focuses on material; engaging with designers and makers whose practice is concerned with the sustainable use of materials, their practical application and cultural meaning.
