The Anniversary exhibition at the Harlequin Gallery will open for business at 11am on Friday 1st March. Although I had originally planned to refer to it as the Spring exhibition, it occurred to me that March 2019 marks 20 years since I took over the gallery itself and 10 years since the move from Greenwich High Road and so it seemed appropriate to acknowledge these facts and change its name. For this anniversary exhibition I have gathered together a mix of over one hundred pots and other ceramics by both British and Japanese makers.

There will be pots by William Marshallincluded in the show. Bill was, as most of you will be aware, associated with the Leach Pottery from when he left school in the 1930s until his retirement in the late 1970s.

Opening hours over the weekend beginning Friday 1st March are 11am until 5pm and I shall be around all of the time. However, if you plan to come along on Sunday 3rd, I would appreciate it if you could give me an approximate time beforehand, as I will not be sitting in the gallery continually on that day.

After that, the exhibition will remain in situ and be open by appointment until the end of May, with other pots being added all the while, in order to fill the gaps.

If you have visit previously then John says, “please just turn up over the weekend, as indicated. However, if you need directions,  (Plumstead, S.E.London) or wish to ask about other pottery that might be available or need to make a specific appointment then please use the CONTACT PAGE. ” ……on John Rastall’s website
