2016 - The Fun is Just Beginning!

2016 - The Fun is Just Beginning!

We are back open after a short Christmas break, excited for what 2016 may bring. We thought we would kick off with a few of our tips for success in 2016. This week we concentrate on Ceramics.

In the ceramics world, which has seen much needed national press coverage with the BBC2 series 'The Great Pottery Throw Down', we have seen several makers continue to produce astounding works. Those of you who know us, will be aware that we don't follow the normal trends of pottery, preferring to extol the wonders from the whole industry rather than one form. Yes the pedigree of todays great artists owes a huge amount to Leach, Rie, Hamada and others but for us there is so much more than reworking their pieces.

A Quick Tour of our Four Rooms!

Like the iconic programme on Channel 4, Bils & Rye offers our visitors four very different rooms, each packed with fabulous visual delights. The internet is a hard place to portray the passion we have for the artists and their work. Even images don't really tell the whole story, somewhat disproving the 1000 words analogy.
