CURATOR’S VIEW MARCH 2012
"The Gallery owner Alastair Taylor and I have just returned from one of our regular visits to see John Maltby and John Leach.
John was in good spirits and clearly as creative and productive as he has ever been. His health has improved significantly in the last few months and as always conversation was wide ranging and robust. We have brought back only five pieces this time because of his current commitments and the constant demand for his work; however these are excellent small sculptures which demonstrate all that is unique about John’s ceramic voice.

The new work of the two John’s and Nick Rees is now on show in the Gallery
|Small Sculptures by Annie Peaker|
Speaking of new work we are showing the remarkable sculptures of Annie Peaker for the first time. The quality of the modelling is excellent and the subject matter ‘Street Life’ is inspired by urban images from the past. We look forward to hearing the response of our visitors to this very different work.
