Contemporary Ceramics is located in London, opposite the British Museum. At the front of the gallery, a retail space sells studio ceramics from over 80 makers, who are members of the Craft Potters Association. This is complemented by a dedicated gallery space which hosts regular solo and group exhibitions. From a membership of nearly 400, five new makers are selected to be featured in the gallery every two months. This blog highlights their inspirational stories and tales of ceramics.
Tony Laverick has been a full time potter since 1988.
His work is mostly thrown porcelain decorated with precious metal lustres. The surface treatment and execution of his pots display extraordinary mastery of technique. Complex surfaces are
created by working with layers of iridescent colours that mesh and intertwine.
