John Pollex is one of Britain`s foremost potters collected by important ceramic collectors internationally. His work is highly coloured although he is working in the traditional slipware methods for which Devon is well known. This gallery has shown his work for more than 30 years and this exhibition shows the ever-evolving style of John Pollex`s work. His first exhibition here was in 1988.
John Pollex is a great admirer of Howard Hodgkin, Patrick Heron and Ben Nicholson and references can be seen in many pots.
The exhibition is open from Friday 28th of May from 10am till 7pm though we are unable to have a full open evening due to current restrictions. Numbers will be limited at any one time.
In October 2019 we will be holding an exhibition of work by Elaine Peto. The open evening is on Friday October 18th and all ceramics enthusiasts are welcome to join us and Elaine between 6pm and 9pm.
Elaine is known for her stunningly detailed sculptures of animals. To see more of her beuatiful work, please click
