Adam Buick potter and film maker has developed this innovative project, based on the story of seven Irish princesses sent across the sea to land at Tresaith and marry Welshmen.
Reflecting on the topical theme of dangerous sea crossings, Adam made seven moon-jars that were launched from Ireland to sail across the Irish Sea to hopefully land safely in Ceredigion. Adam made a film about the project called Place of Seven that was very well received when shown to a full house in the Arts Centre Cinema during the International Ceramics. The film is also shown in the Ceramics Gallery alongside maps and the surviving moon jars as part of the exhibition which also includes commissioned work by Marged Pendrell, Meri Wells and Val James who have also responded to the theme.
