Current Exhibition

David Wright Box Gallery

Sat, June 1, 2024 - Sun, June 30, 2024

The month of June we have an exhibition of David Wright, he is a studio potter with connections to Northeast Lincolnshire, he was born and brought up in Cleethorpes and studied at Grimsby School of Art in the mid-1980s. He gained a first-class honours degree in 3-D Design (Ceramics) from Wolverhampton Polytechnic before postgraduate study for a Master’s Degree in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art during which time he completed a placement at Wedgwood.

David’s ceramics are in several galleries around the country as well as in private collections here and abroad, including, America, Ireland, France, Japan and New Zealand. His current work is in earthenware, but he also uses stoneware and raku clays and firing processes. Hand building techniques such as press moulding, extruding, and slabbing are employed to make components that are then assembled into pieces that explore the possibilities of the lidded vessel and bottle forms. Surfaces are often textured to enhance interaction between clay and glaze.
