Cauldrons and Furnaces

The production of a large number of small ceramic figures has been taking place by students from Fishguard schools (some of the staff got involved too...) and as you can see the results have been excellent.
The figures will be about 20 cm high after firing and have been modelled using paper clay.
 The aim is to combine the modelled figures together with film of actual buildings and landscape  to recreate a mediaeval pilgrimage to the Bishops Palace. It is hoped that the film will be projected in the undercroft of the Palace whilst the line of ghostly figures continue to process through the grounds during the 'Cauldrons and Furnaces' main event at in St.Davids next summer. Fishguard Arts Society artists are just one of the local groups and individual artists creating art works and performance pieces as part of the 'Cultural Olympiad' in Wales.
