Nick Rees – Master potter at Muchelney since 1972

I have recently had some updated images from Nick and a reminder of his show with John leach at Muchelney in September this year. He also now has a new website: www.nickreespotter.co.uk which is well worth a look. A couple of the new pots are shown below, but have a look at them all and more on his website.

Lorraine Robson – New developments and show

Lorraine recently received a Creative Development Grant from Scottish Arts Council to fund a nine month period of research and development to produce a new body of work for exhibition. The work in her new solo show in Glasgow is the result of this creative development. Edinburgh born, ceramic Artist, Lorraine Robson, launches new hand-built ceramics at Roger Billcliffe Gallery, Glasgow on 27 March 2010.

                                   See more of Lorraine’s work and background on her profile page and gallery. 27/3/10. Just heard: The preview on 26 march went extremely well and the feedback was excellent. The new work was a great HIT! so justifying all the research and hard work!

Ceramic Art London 2010

I thought this was again an excellent show, with plenty of new work to balance those who had shown before. From what i saw (short snapshot!) plenty of sales were taking place. Altogether a well balanced and enjoyable show, where I was able to meet many old friends and a few new. A few of my pictures are shown below, but are no substitute for seeing it live. Make a note to try and get along next year – well worth the time!

Eddie and Margaret Curtis and John Higgins new work was amongst much that caught my eye.

Gilles Le Corre had a great new installation in black which attracted a lot of attention.

Sara Flynn with her work around – I could go on, there was just so much to enjoy.
