From Politics to Pots: Spitting Image’s Roger Law to feature at the York Ceramic Fair 6-7 October 2018
Roger Law was the artist and energy behind the TV satirical show Spitting Image. He has now turned his energies to making ceramics and will be putting in a special appearance at the York Ceramic Fair this October.
This new event, on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 October, is a chance to discover hundreds of pots, to fall in love and take home, from teapots, vases and jugs of all shapes and sizes, to quirky figures and large sculptural artworks. Get hands on and be inspired by a packed programme of demos and talks.
Prepare to be amused and astonished by the creative energy of Roger Law, the event’s star speaker, he comments:
“The success of the topical satirical television show ‘Spitting Image’, which pilloried the rich and famous, ironically made me rich and famous. When the show closed in 1997 I quietly deported myself to Australia to concentrate on what was left of my talent. In the last two decades I’ve gone from politics to pots working in both Australia and China’s ‘Porcelain City’ Jingdezhen. I would like my pots to be as engaging and attractive as my caricatures were rude and ugly.”
Roger Law will be speaking at York Ceramic Fair on Sunday 7 October 2-3pm, this is included with entry.
York Ceramic Fair takes place on the weekend of Sat 6 and Sun 7 October, in the York Hospitium, a beautiful mediaeval building set in the leafy environs of Museum Gardens on the bank of the river Ouse in the heart of York. For more details please visit www.yorkceramicsfair.com Entry to the event including access to all talks and demos is £4.50, U16’s free.
