We first did this with our Peter Swanson exhibition exhibiting a small selection of pots by Richard Heeley. This showcase concept proved to be popular with our visitors. So we are again doing a show case, this time showing two very talented makers, Steve Booton and Rachel Wood.

Doug Fitch
Earthenware in the Glorious English Country Tradition

19th November - 27th November
A first major solo exhibition by Doug Fitch. Doug's earthenware is a wonderful evocation of the English Country Pottery tradition that Bernard Leach writes of. By 1920 most of the Country Potteries had disappeared and it was the work of potter's like Michael Cardew that kept the flame burning. Doug is a continuation of Michael Cardew effots, developing his own distinctive voice and now producing mature contemporary earthenware firmly rooted in our Glorious English Tradition.

Peter Swanson (Solo Exhibition)
8th October - 16th October
We are thrilled to be back at Thoresby Gallery after a break of 18 months, and who better to start our new exhibition program than Peter Swanson. Peter's work continues to excite with new forms and further development of more refined glazes derived from wood ashes. This exhibition sees a new batch of used thatch ash over locally sourced red ochre, wonderful temoku and use of pours and drips.
