Mick at Wobage in the 1980s
is ten years now since Mick Casson passed away on December 12th
2003 so I thought I would commemorate this
with an photographic exhibition of Mick's work - nothing is
for sale it is purely a celebration of the work of a great potter.
Mick gave so much to the studio pottery world
and left a thriving legacy at Wobage Farm in Herefordshire when
potters Patia Davis, Jeremy Steward,
Sheila Herring and Ana Simmons work alongside Mick's
son, bespoke furniture maker Ben Casson. Mick's wife Shelia
still lives at Wobage and has only recently turned off her wheel
the last time.
Mick's pots have a real presence and continue
to enrich the lives of many, many people. I treasure mine and
the pottery enthusiasts who have allowed me to photograph their
examples of Mick's work feel the same way - we still have a
connection with a truly inspirational potter.
