Mark Melbourne, EXHIBITION OF NEW CERAMICS, PRIVATE VIEW, Friday 1 September 2017, 5 – 7.30pm. Wine, fruit juice and nibbles. Contact for invite.The John Leach Gallery is delighted to showcase a solo exhibition of the latest individual pots by master potter Mark Melbourne.
Following a three year stint at Muchelney Pottery in the early 1990s, Mark rejoined as a full time member of the crew in 2002. He continues to develop his individual signed pots – regularly experimenting with form and surface decoration. He fires his own work in the Muchelney Pottery three-chambered woodfired climbing kiln. The searing heat of 1320 °C that the kiln reaches creates the distinctive ‘toasting’ to some pots and lively rich glazes on others.
