Experimental ceramic art


May 2013

I am taking part in a group show of ceramic art with Raewyn Harrison and Ian Byers at the Tokarska Gallery. The three of us have very different approaches to ceramics but all of us are treating clay as a sculptural medium. It should be a stimulating and thought provoking show.

Tokarska Gallery

163 Forest Road
E17 6HE

May 9th - June 1st
Thurs - Sat: 12pm - 7pm


Accompanying the show are two talks, exploring ceramics in a wider context. Keith Harrison, (selected exhibitor at the ‘Jerwood Open 2011’), will be talking about his exciting live performance pieces including his recent clay speakers destoyed by sound! Bonnie Kemske, editor of ‘Ceramic Review’ and ceramic artist, will talk more broadly about new developments in ceramics and its status both as art and craft today.

Both events are "Free to Attend", however you will need to register and book your place for the event by following links below:

E17 Art Trail 2012

I showed some work at last year’s E17 Art Trail, opening up my garden shed-cum-studio for all three weekends.

The trail was the biggest so far with 350 exhibitions and events in 180 venues & Grayson Perry showed his ‘Walthamstow Tapestry’ at the revamped William Morris Gallery on Forest Road.

The last meal

As part of the art trail I also showed the work 'The last meal' (shown above) in Walthamstow library.
It was produced specially for Amnesty International as part of their anti capital punishment campaign.
