Brook Street Pottery & GalleryExhibition InvitationCarry Akroyd’s work is all derived from the landscape, her images are found while walking or sitting looking, drawing and sketching. In the studio the ideas usually develop into being serigraphs (screen prints). These are made by printing one layer of colour at a time through a screen blocked in some areas with cut paper stencils. Each layer has some mono-printed element, so that in a final edition of maybe 10 prints no two are exactly the same. Sometimes the prints are individually embellished with colour pencil work.Richard Phethean’s work draws on Minoan pottery of ancient Crete, slipware traditions and makes references to the abstraction of domestic objects and landscapes in 20th Century painting. He makes thrown, altered and assembled vessels in coarse textured terracotta with slab elements, brushed slips and paper resist. Bisque pots are selectively stained, masked and wax resisted before glazing and firing to 1120 centigrade in an electric kiln. He spends his working life seeking harmony between form and surface.
