"This exhibition has come from my time in Greece in June 2010 as an artist in residency. The time spent not only working in the studio, but with family, enjoying precious time together.  Greeks have a way of making you appreciate the more simple joys in life, the every day, the little things. The sea was so clear, so beautiful. Not that this work is really about lovely beaches, it is about the turbulent, beautiful and complex world we live in. The sea in this work is a metaphor for change, emotion and unpredictable challenges life often throws at us. Its also very much about fragility. In nature but also time. I remember distinctly being at a beach and watching these very tiny sea flowers floating in the seabed under the water. They were so fragile. The beach was called Limnonari – it was picture perfect. I wondered how long this would stay this way. I hope forever. But I worry about the way life is lived now and how our environment can cope with the strains we place on it. The ceramics is particularly about this. I wanted to capture the fragility and serenity of this sea, this moment." BELINDA FOX
