Craft shop, open daily 10am-5.30pm

This summer we are very proud to be hosintg a special display and sale of craft work by Paul Jackson here in our craft shop at the Guild in Bovey Tracey.

Paul will be showing some of his Madrugada Collection, This series of pots focuses on the recent development of a new range of slips and patterns. The resulting decoration has given Paul the freedom to be able to paint directly on to the pots in a more abstract and painterly way, layering colours to create a tapestry of incidental tones and impressionistic brush work.
Named ‘Madrugada’ (meaning dawn in Portuguese), they reflect the journey Paul’s pots make through his travels.

Paul says: “Yes, there is some colour inspiration from my travels, but in a way this is about simplifying the approach, even though the finished results can look quite complex. The bottle forms are as new to me as the decoration – and I did feel that the work needed a new form. These softer less angled forms allow for a drift of decoration, that sweeps around the pot and almost wraps them up. The matt bronze sections reveal the clay of the vessel and remind you that this is a plastic, malleable medium – almost unique in the world of making. I hope that through these pots you feel the vibrancy and warmth of the Mediterranean.”
