Mandy Long’s ceramic sculptures are on display at Headingley Carnegie Stadium Cafe until 6 December. The exhibition demonstrates Mandy’s fascination with competitive sports and with contemporary dance. Her figurative ceramic and glass sculptures are made using the raku firing technique, and invite the viewer to take a closer look at fleeting moments that show the strength and fragility of the human body. The exhibition is open daily Mon-Fri from 9..30-4.30pm and the cafe is accessible from St Michael’s Lane, LS6 3BR.

The exhibition is part of the Fields of Vision – the arts and sport conference and arts programme convened by Leeds Rugby Arts (Leeds Rugby Foundation) and the Institute for Sport, Physical Activity and Leisure at Leeds Metropolitan University.
