Top Tips For 2017 - Ceramics

Top Tips For 2017 - Ceramics

We have hand picked a few of the resident ceramicists and a few that we have lined up for later in 2017 as our top picks for the year. Each has a very different approach, either in making or in the finishing process. The results show the depth of talent in the UK and beyond and the broad range of ceramics now available across the UK. 

We will continue to showcase these talented makers and many more whilst helping the emerging artists such as Rhian Malin to find a place in this buoyant and exciting market. We currently have over 40 potters on show from long time specialists such as Stephen Murfitt, Akiko Hirai and Tanya Gomez to the wonderful emerging talents of Albert Montserrat, Alex Shimwell and Cat Santos. 

We have a number of selection criteria for the artists we show, not least form, function and finish. It's a delight to open up a box of the latest arrivals!

9 Collectible Artists for the Year Ahead

It's been a while since we sat down and worked out who is good to collect and maybe bring some much needed positivity to your life and net worth! We scan the shelves and add a few that are soon to join the gallery. We would love your feedback too!

Albert Montserrat - Porcelain Mastered

Albert Montserrat - Porcelain Mastered

Our tip for the year in ceramics is Catalan artist Albert Montserrat. His thrown porcelain vessels are majestic measuring 50-60cm tall. Currently priced at £350.00 they represent great value too! We currently have six examples in the gallery collected at the weekend. There were 8 but already two have departed to new homes!

Albert's use of oil spot glazes helps to elevate an already beautiful pot to something quite magnificent.

We are also delighted to announce that Fryton Catering have taken on the old coffee shop at Nunnington Studios and will be opening the doors shortly. It will be great to have a buzz about at the yard again. They have planned a launch event for Friday 29th April in the evening and we will be letting you know more about that shortly. The gallery will be open for the evening too so you can experience the courtyard and all that it offers along with a glass or two of wine with canapés and a hog roast!
