robin welch

ROBIN WELCH is one of the most pre-eminent artist potter of his generation. Welch, born in 1936, has developed a considerable reputation for his freely constructed individual pots over the last 30 years, the making of which has been interspersed with tableware production, architectural work, teaching and residencies in Australia and the United States. His ceramic education was unusually broad. While at Penzance School of Art, he spent weekends at the Leach Pottery learning much about his materials, but his time at the Central School took him beyond the Oriental world. Innovative teachers like William Turnbull and Gordon Baldwin helped Welch to look outside the ceramic orbit for ideas, initiating a broader more sculptural perspective. He learnt that good pots could develop out of the discipline of drawing in the same way that painting does.
