View 'Ra08t Large Jug'

All the ceramics are hand-made; thrown on the wheel by Rupert Johnstone and then hand painted by Alice Hartford. The current range is fired at earthenware temperature. Colour is first applied using various clay slips. When the clay slip is drying, scraffito tools are used to incise lines through the colour and create specific designs…

View 'Nr5 Small  Tall Pot With Neck - Urchin Pattern'

For many years I had been getting increasingly tired of the constraints of slip casting and glazing and had been searching for a freer way of working. Since 2000 two events have been central to my new way of working. A Jane Perryman five-day course and a trip to Malawi, working with Malawian potters, changed my whole outlook and presented me with a wealth of new possibilities…

Robinson, John

View 'Self Portrait Of A Musician'

While studying art in 1999 John won the Peter Spicer Student of the Year award. Part of his prize was an exhibition of his work at the Bevere Vivis Gallery in Worcester UK which was the forerunner of the Gallery at Bevere.

John paintings are documents of a strange unknown performance. Narratives are subtly unraveled and then contradicted…

Rogers, Phil
(view Gallery)

My work is divided approximately equally between two kilns. About half is Salt Glazed in a 60 cu.ft. kiln that is fired with propane gas and the other half in my old and trusted oil fired kiln of 75 cu.ft.
Salt Glazing is an exciting, but often less than predictable, method of firing pottery. As the kiln approaches the height of the firing the temperature has risen to a white hot 1260C…

View '27 Out Of The Woods 7/20'

Sarah Ross-Thompson is a Fine Art Printmaker specialising in hand-inked, original collagraph prints inspired by the Dorset landscape.
Using carefully built collage blocks, her work combines the vibrant colours of oil-based printing inks with the textural qualities of the materials she uses. This combination produces a distinctive look that makes her work instantly recognisable…

Ross, Vivienne
(view Gallery).

All Vivienne’s work is made using red earthenware clay, which is decorated using coloured slips and underglazes. Her interest lies in making pots which act as containers for both objects and ideas. Each piece is unique; hand-made, individually decorated and signed…

Rossman, Fritz
(view Gallery)

In this exhibition he works with porcelain with a red slip, creating characteristic horizontal banding with contrasting glazed and unglazed areas.
His forms are decidedly contemporary, bearing little resemblance to any ceramic traditions.
Fritz is a skilled thrower as anyone seeing his demonstrations will confirm.

Ruggiero, Nici
(view Gallery)

View 'Nr7  Pucker  Pot 2 ( Small)'

“Ambiguity surrounds my work, through which I strive to sensitively engage the viewer.
Thrown, altered and nurtured on the potter’s wheel or meticulously hand built using coils, my sculptural monochromic vessels are Raku fired and then left naked without glaze, only dressed by delicate decoration painted in smoke…
