Kate Brindley, Director of Collections and Exhibitions, will introduce the latest commission of contemporary ceramics to be unveiled at Chatsworth in Spring 2018, Sowing Colour by Natasha Daintry.

Sowing Colour by Natasha Daintry is a specially commissioned ceramic installation for the Devonshire Collection and a bold addition to the current Duke and Duchess's growing collection of contemporary art and design. 

Natasha Daintry has long been admired by them both - a ceramicist of international acclaim known particularly for her experiments with glazes, using a high-white porcelain as the luminous ground on which to explore colour. Sowing Colour is a site-specific commission that will be unveiled at Chatsworth for opening 2018. Situated in the Dome Room, the piece comprises 238 coloured pots burgeoning down in a coloured explosion from tiny to monumental, embodying the dramatic and dynamic progression of Fibonacci’s mathematical sequence that underlies natural growth. Texture, reflection, scale, multiplicity, colour, muscularity and delicacy will all play a part. 

Kate will delve more into Sowing Colour in the context of the Duke and Duchess's passion for supporting artists today.

This talk includes refreshments in the Cavendish restaurant followed by the talk in the Hartington room.
