To celebrate the food festival again this year we have stunning collections of ceramics by some of the best contemporary ceramic makers.
Just arrived …the bold, distinctive patterned bowls of Andrew Ludick. Having originally studied illustration at Columbus College of Art, Andrew changed his focus away from painting and drawing to working with clay after moving to Ireland in 2003. He is influenced by the arts of the indigenous cultures of Africa and the Americas along with work by Paul Klee, Joan Miro, Thelonious Monk and Eric Dolphy.
…new work by a long time favourite of ours, Dylan Bowen, who has been having a really successful year with a demonstration and talk at The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford alongside a joint exhibition at the Oxford Ceramics Gallery with his renowned father Clive Bowen. (See images below)

Something for everyone…
We are showcasing a new maker, Barry Stedman, alongside our current exhibition with painter Kumar Saraff.
Barry makes slab-built or hand thrown and altered pieces using stunning, vibrant colours and strong mark making.
‘My ceramics are influenced by the drawings that I make in places that I find interesting and inspiring. I like to explore exciting relationships between colour, texture and form, motivated by light and atmosphere. I work with strong, simple forms often in series exploring a particular theme thrown up by a place, a drawing or a memory. I try to make the work feel fresh, spontaneous and full of energy. I usually work with red earthenware clay, painted, scratched and marked with coloured slips, stains and oxides.’
Barry studied ceramics at the University of Westminster and has been a studio assistant to Edmund de Waal since graduating. He is a professional member of the Craft Potters Association and Contemporary Applied Arts. He has shown his work extensively and is a regular exhibitor at Ceramic Art London (RCA), Earth & Fire (Rufford) and Art in Clay (Hatfield House).
