29th February – 1st March 2020
For the fourth year in succession London Potters will return to the stunning Normansfield Theatre, Teddington, with a Studio Pottery Fair.
Featuring the work of 20 local LP members, the event will feature both established professionals as well as emerging talents. The fair will be an opportunity for visitors to be inspired by a mix of functional, decorative and sculptural ceramics as well as talking to makers, over the weekend.
Raku ware from Mike Earl using specially formulated glazes, where work is rapidly cooled, and the effect is only revealed at the final stage each piece has its own markings from the flames it has encountered in the process.
And the work of Alison Proctor whose is inspired by the natural world. Combining throwing and hand building techniques Alison creates stunning sculptural ceramics.
The fair will feature the plates and vessels of Gail Altschuler who combines graphic and printmaking with ceramic techniques. Inspired by colour, texture and pattern, no two of Gail’s pieces are exactly alike.
All works will be available for sale with price points suitable for every pocket.
Normansfield Theatre is one of the last remaining Victorian theatres in London and is part of the Langdon Down Centre, home of the Down’s Syndrome Association. It is a beautiful listed building, well-known locally and it would be well worth combining a visit to the fair with a tour over the weekend.
There is a café on site serving light refreshments and a children’s activity area will also be available. Open 11am-5pm, at the Normansfield Theatre, The Langdon Down Centre, 2A Langdon Park, Teddington, TW11 9PS
