Gallery – Pots Galore
Saturday 18 July to Saturday 22 August.
A local branch of Northern Potters Association is curating a ceramic exhibition (Pots Galore). Eight potters are showing their work: Clive Weake, Hazel Higham, Barbara Chadwick, Janet Halligan, Gill McMillan, Pat Amies, Amanda Evans, and Kathryn Watson.
The work is exciting and varied, with sculptural, ornamental and functional ceramics using a range of clays and glazes and techniques including porcelain, stoneware, terracotta and raku work. There is also a programme of demonstrations of ceramics throughout the exhibition, where the potters show how their work is made.
Demonstrations schedule (11:00 – 14:00 each day)
8th August: Hazel Higham – throwing on the pottery wheel, bowls, teapots, etc.
9th August: Hazel Higham – turning and finishing pots made previous day
15th August: Pat Amies – handbuilding
16th August: Gill McMillan – pressmoulding
Prices of the work are reasonable and items can be purchased from the exhibition, therefore the exhibition will change as items are sold.
Last year we had a successful Northern Potters exhibition in January/ February at the Foxlowe Arts Centre. The group is excited to hold their second exhibition in Staffordshire.
The Gallery is open Wed-Sat 10am-4pm and Sunday 11am-4pm.
