Never have I seen so many people at a preview
event and by early afternoon all 250 signed copies of the accompanying
book by David Whiting and Jay Goldmark had sold.
In a move away from single potter events, the
Goldmark Gallery have staged a wonderful exhibition that shows
breadth of talent evident in the current British pottery scene.
Functional, sculptural, figurative and abstract work are all included
so there is something for every taste and visitors like myself
who have a narrow field of interest have the chance to widen their
experience and maybe find a new area of interest.
In the accompanying book - Modern British
Potters, David Whiting provides an insight into each potter's
work. The book is lavishly illustrated by Jay Goldmark's photographs
the potters at work in their studios. If you cannot get to the
exhibition, please do purchase Modern British Potters,
you will not be disappointed.
