Slipped | Contemporary approaches to the traditional art of slipware | In conversation with Dylan Bowen, Doug Fitch and Nigel Lambert
|Our current selling exhibition Slipped brings together three makers working with clay, all with contemporary approaches to the traditional art of slipware: Dylan Bowen, Doug Fitch and Nigel Lambert.|
We take a glimpse into the creative lives of the three artists and their ceramics as they talk about their influences, approaches to making, and thoughts behind the work on display for this exhibition.
If you are able to visit our London ceramics gallery, you can see the pieces on display in our Emmanuel Cooper Gallery. For those who can't visit, the full list and images of exhibition pieces can be seen here http://cpaceramics.com/ccc/currentex . This post also includes a selection of photographs showing some of the ceramics from the exhibition.

Doug Fitch: I will be adopting various traditional slipware techniques, exploring the manner in which a basic palette of materials can be used in combination, to maximum effect. Some pots will be decorated with a covering of a green, white or black slip, poured over surfaces of applied pellets and coils.
