Ceramic artist to feature in new Sky TV programme

 Aug 13, 2015

Following on from her selection to be showcased at the exclusive Rum’s Eg Gallery in Romsey, our ceramicist Sheena Bond has been chosen as one of the gallery’s artists to be featured in a new arts programme for Sky TV.

The as-yet-titled programme is being made for the network by Face TV who were looking for gifted and gregarious artists to feature on the new show.

After an initial meeting with producer Mark Brennan and director Irving Martin, Sheena was one of just six artists selected to be filmed.

To capture the essence of her work, the TV crew shot scenes of Sheena running one of her popular Raku firing workshops at her home in Bishopstoke as well as “throwing” on her potter’s wheel at The Sorting Office. Turning, glazing, firing, smoking were all captured for the programme, alongside an interview with Sheena about her art and the journey that brought her to it.

“It’s all super exciting,” said Sheena. “I was shocked when they contacted me to say that I had been chosen to be filmed for the Sky TV programme.

“I clicked instantly with the director, Irving, which helped calm any nerves that I may have had so I think that helped.

“Now I’m just waiting for news about when the show will air … it’s all rather scary!”
