Andy McInnes

The organiser for Art in Clay at Hatfield and Farnham, will be talking about how a newcomer to a ceramics market should go about preparing their work, the application process and how best to present their work to the buying public’.

The shows are organised by Andy and Di Mcinnes. They have been interested in ceramics for many years , initially meeting potters on the craft circuit and at exhibitions, then searching them out in their workshops, always welcomed and usually leaving with a purchase. Andy then took on the challenge of organising these shows, which at the time were owned by an exhibition company. In 2005 they bought the shows and haven’t looked back. Di recently took early retirement from the Health Service to concentrate all her efforts on the show.

My current project, The Blast, was the result of one of the most strongly felt inspirations I have experienced in quite some time. The brutal yet beautiful landscape that now inspired me. What I saw was a combination of textures, an unlikely juxtaposition of the man-made and the natural, objects long bereft of their usefulness and worn and encroached upon by erosion and encrustation. I was looking at sand, clay, metal and stone in various combinations. The textures were cracked, crazed, bright, blunt, sharp, wet, slippy, slimey smooth hard. It has probably been my most rewarding project to date.

“Essential to his philosophy is an oriental view that the role of the individual in the creation of true art is unobtrusive. Mike’s work has maintained this philosophy in the making of unshowy pots with simply applied surface textures and subtle glazes sourced from naturally occurring materials. It is a rare approach that has required during his career an intense personal application. As a result his work enjoys the support of many serious collectors of English pottery, as well as that of some respected critics whose judgement of Mike’s work is unusually and openly generous, simply that it has beauty.” Paul Vincent, Founding Editor of ‘Ceramics in Society
