20 November - 20 December 2010. This most unusual exhibition sees artist and blacksmith Matthew Luck Galpin amass a collection of fallen shooting stars which he melted in his forge before refashioning them into artworks.

His work process has been described as unlocking the meteorite's secrets with "fire, strength and the artist's eye".

The stars, which have been hammered into shape and then polished to a mirror-like quality, are on display amongst the museum permanent exhibits.
