Corinna Kenyon-Wade skillfully wheel-throws that most finicky of ceramic materials, porcelain, and finishes her wares with classic celadon and other glazes. Just look at that luscious crackle! Looking forward to seeing what Corinna will be bringing us for Fire + Earth.
It’s a bit daunting to write about the inimitable Ken Eastman, whose work is so well known nationally and internationally, so I’ll let the lovely image below do the talking. We’re super-pleased and honoured that he’s agreed to contribute a piece to Fire + Earth. Ken is represented in the UK by the Marsden Woo Gallery, London.
Another Fire + Earth exhibitor is Basil Titford. From his purpose-built pottery studio in Wales, he creates both decorative and practical household items, slab-built or press-moulded, as well as raku work.
Next up in the Fire + Earth series is Leg of Mutton’s own Andrew Eastwood. Andrew’s most recent work involves the technical challenges of combining paper-thin porcelain blades with grainy, waney-edge wood, evoking aerial views of frozen landscapes.
To get the party started for Fire + Earth, and give you all a little taste of what you’ll see at Aardvark Books come 8 April, look at this little beauty by Andrew Crouch. Andrew established the Marches Pottery in Ludlow in 1982, where he produces functional tableware. His work is wheel-thrown and reduction-fired, timeless and classic.
