Nic Harrison - In Residence

It was a pleasure  to host Nic Harrison(One of our Cornish Potters) in Bevere Stable Show Room all last week.
Nic and his wife travelled all the way up from Cornwall and during his time here he produced many pots on the Wheel.

 The weather was good on the whole and Nic placed his Potter's wheel outside the Stable so that our  Gallery Cafe visitors had a very good view of him at work and had many a conversation with him and his wife

Pete Higgs & Friends in the Stable Workshop

Bevere Stable - Exhibition of the Group's Ceramics

We were very pleased to welcome 'Pete and his Friends' back this year to do a week's residence

 Pete is one of our regular exhibitors and his stoneware fruit and leaves have been part of our sculpture trail for many years.  His ceramics are always available in the Gallery and 'online'

 There was a different potter demonstrating each day and our visitors enjoyed seeing their varied work and talking about their experiences.

Pete Higgs, Gill Tennant-Eyles, Eunice Powell and Roland Styles formed a small artist group after studying for their Degrees and Masters at University.

Since then they have organised an exhibition tour and after the Bevere Stables workshop will be at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery for a 12 month exhibition in the contemporary galleries, under the name of "Ceramics Collective".

All four have said how much they have enjoyed their week at Bevere Gallery, as it has given them the opportunity to interact with buyers and explain their work in more detail.

Pete says "Hopefully visitors to the gallery have enjoyed talking to the artists, we've certainly enjoyed talking to them and would love to return next year".
