Solo show exhibiting stunning pottery by Richard Phethean.  

 

Richard's earthenware vessels are classical in form and slip decorated.  The pots explore contour and shape, through a combination of throwing and slab built techniques; thrown elements are cut, altered and assembled, with additional rolled and textured slabs.  Slip brushing and sgrafitto is carried out on the leather hard surface.  After bisque firing, areas of plain clay are stained, and pieces are selectively protected from glaze by wax resist.  Richard finally uses either transparent clear or honey glaze before the last firing in an electric kiln to 1125 degrees centigrade.
