Malone NEW WORK
Show Cases by
Steve Booton & Rachel Wood
- 7th May
We are delighted to be exhibiting Jim Malone's major exhibition
of 2012. All the works will be new work warm from the kiln.
As a bonus for our visitors we will again as with our 2011 exhibitions
be having a showcase . 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.
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.
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.
