'Sculptures and bas-relief murals'
Hard facts are scarce, and this exhibition is not helping... vibrant, colourful stoneware is the medium for this alternative view of West Swindon's past. These sculptures and bas-relief murals explore the local history, archaeology, and above all our natural history. Putting fake news where it belongs - in clay.
