Fire + Earth: Rob Fountain

Rob Fountain will be bringing some of his striking sculptural work to Fire + Earth. He describes his work as “mov[ing] between figurative, functional and abstract, reflecting and informed by the structures, shapes and experiences in the rolling hills and valleys of Mid Wales.”

Fire + Earth: Corinna Kenyon-Wade

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.

Fire + Earth: Ken Eastman

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.

Fire + Earth: Andrew Crouch

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.
