Gareth Mason -interesting article in Ceramics monthly

Gareth (who we hope will join studiopottery.co.uk one day) has just sent me a link to an interesting article about him in Ceramics Monthly, the excellent American Ceramics magazine, written by Helen Bevis, who Gareth says is based near Montpellier in the south of France and contributes regularly to international periodicals on ceramics, culture and people.

The article is entitled The Attraction of Opposites and also includes a section by Gareth on Material and Process, which should be of interest to students and collectors with an interest in Gareths work The article can currently (27.10.2008) be found at this address I hope you enjoy reading it.
