Dumfries and Galloway Fine Arts Society

Heather Davies - Fractured II

March 15 : Talk and demonstration: A brief history of my pots and process, by Christopher Taylor.

Christopher will describe his 30-year career as a potter and talk about the kind of work he does now. He will show how he makes his soft-thrown vase shapes on the potter’s wheel.

March 29 : Workshop

To be held at Clay Works Studios at the Crichton, Dumfries. Participants will have a go on the wheel and make a dish which will be decorated using some of the processes described in the talk.

Participants need not bring anything except perhaps some simple line drawings to transfer onto the work they make.

Christopher, who runs the studios with his wife Lauren Gray, studied ceramics at the Royal College of
Art where he focused on learning decorative processes. He moved from Devon to Dumfries in 2017 and has developed a practice making pots with rich, unusual surfaces.
