Potter Rachel Wood features this month in Box Gallery
Work by ceramicist Rachel Wood features throughout March in the Box Gallery at The Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber.
Her individual pieces are made using stoneware clay which are coiled, slabbed or thrown and frequently distorted during the process.
“The natural spontaneous qualities of the clay are important to her so that each pot conveys its own spirit and character,” explained the Maltkiln Road gallery’s Exhibition Officer, Richard Hatfield.
“Both her recent travels in Australia and working with another of our favourite ceramicists, Robin Welch, has been pivotal in her development,” Richard continued. “The colours, shapes and textures of the landscape, and in particular the Dark Peak areas around Derbyshire’s Kinder, provide Rachel with constant inspiration.”
Rachel’s work is on display in the Box Gallery until March 30.
