Our colleagues from the Cornwall Ceramics and Glass Group (CCGG) kindly extended an invitation to an exclusive online demonstration from renowned slipware potter John Pollex on Thursday 29th April.
“Never pick up what you can’t put down.”
Working with SWE white earthenware, John shared his tips for creating bottles, jugs and plates and for working in a studio. In the second part of the 2 hour zoom session, he focussed on decorative techniques using a range of sponges, brushes and slip-trailers to produce his characteristically bold colour scheme.
John has a solo exhibition in Simon Drew’s Gallery in Dartmouth. Titled ‘Slipware for the Roaring Twenties’, visitors can visit the gallery to view his work from 10.00am until 7.00pm on Friday the 29th May.
