Thursday 17th August - Saturday 9th September 2023

Matthew Blakely’s work is made entirely from rocks and clays collected from selected places around the UK, thus representing their geology and mineralogy.

Adam Buick uses a single pure jar form as a canvas to map his observations from an ongoing study of his surroundings.

Adam Frew creates functional porcelain pieces and large one-off pots with the surface offering a perfect ground for his distinctive decoration.

Jaejun Lee is deeply inspired by the moon jars of the Joseon Dynasty, but rather than reproduce them he aspires to apply his own contemporary ideography.

Stephen Parry and Lone Borgen work collaboratively exploring an exciting new visual conversation in which very distinct and in some ways seemly conflicting approaches move together and bounce off each other over the surface of the clay.

Tricia Thom’s work takes references from her love of a Japanese aesthetic where surfaces of her pots are treated with bold, loose calligraphic brush strokes which contrast with the conformity of shape.

Exhibition pieces will be viewable online from Thursday 17th August 2023.

Adam Frew

Thursday 22nd August - Saturday 14th September 2024

Adam Frew works in porcelain, creating thrown functional and large one-off pots. He revels in the spontaneity of throwing, the speed of production, seeking to reflect this energy in his distinctive mark making. These marks are continually evolving, but are always energetic and confident.
Adam works in contrasts: of lines or washes, glazed and unglazed, blues and oranges or reds and more recently, applied ridges.“A sense of energy has always been central to my work. Working with the clay in a way that is fluid and quick, and doesn’t require much reshaping.”Adam Frew works in porcelain, creating thrown functional and large one-off pots.

Charles Bound: Learning to See

Thursday 19th September - Saturday 12th October 2024

Charles Bound ‘s work is unconsciously influenced by significant periods of time spent in the USA, Africa, and the UK. Loose and elemental, it reflects the rugged landscape of Wales, particularly of the farm environment where he lives and works today. The indeterminate process of seeing how it goes has always motivated Charles; often with the friendly eye of a visiting granddaughter who would help him decide what a piece was to be as it was developing.

Akiko Hirai: Sleep On It

Thursday 17th October - Saturday 9th November 2024

Akiko Hirai makes largely functional ware using the Japanese tradition of allowing the clay itself to show the way in which it wants to be fired. She tries not to control her materials but to let them and the unpredictable environment of the kiln dictate much of the resulting shape and colour of her work.
