“…Preece’sceramic practiceis an intriguingmeeting point of concrete reference and personal meaning. She articulates familiar domestic objectsbut setsthemwithina sense-scape so rich with evocation, so alive with tacit stimulithat her compositionsdip in and out ofmemories of wherewe may have experienced such sensory equivalentsbefore.What Soja’s ‘Third Space’attempts to define,is our innate desire to find ourselves within something, to re-interpret and re-code the world according to our own personal narratives and this is the mechanism that kicks into heightened activity when we encounter Preece’s ceramics.”
