Meet the Maker: Peter Lane - Sat 22 Sep 2018 -Sat 22 Sep 2018

Riverside Gallery, 2-4pm. Drop-in. FREE

Meet Devon Guild Member and long-standing potter Peter Lane, who is currently exhibiting in a major retrospective exhibition in our Riverside Gallery: 60 Years in Ceramics. (til 28 October)

Peter Lane's work, especially in porcelain, is in many collections around the world and it has been widely exhibited in Britain, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Norway, Switzerland, Kuwait, Australia, Canada and the USA. His ceramics have been illustrated and reviewed in numerous books, magazines and newspapers at home and abroad. His exhibitionat Devon Guild in 2018 covers a career spanning 60 years of potting, teaching and writing all over the world.

From 2-4pm on Saturday, you can drop in and meet Peter and talk to him about the collection of his work on show -  made up of  individually-made earthenware, stoneware and mainly porcelain pieces. Ask about his inspiration, designs and techniques in the pursuit of porcelain perfection....

Peter describes himself as "basically a vessel-maker", although he is interested more in form and surface than function in the work he produces. Much of his stimulus comes from his love of natural forms and landscape. He has become particularly well-known for his carved and/or pierced porcelain bowls. His most recent work involves the use of brightly coloured ceramic stains on unglazed, polished porcelain exploring qualities of light and colour as experienced in "Skies" and landscape. In addition to the continuing influence of nature, some of his designs reflect his experience of modern architecture seen during his travels abroad.

FREE. Drop-in, no need to book. (2-4pm)

Devon Guild of Craftsmen, Riverside Mill, Bovey Tracey, Devon, TQ13 9AF
