Mud and Water @ Rokeby 

"the exhibition investigates a current interest 
in process, materiality and truthfulness to medium."

Svend Baye, 
large wood fired stoneware vessel

Rokeby's inaugural exhibition in its new gallery space looks to the history of British studio ceramics and the Modernist rhetoric used by figures associated with the movement. Including work by a selection of British Studio Potters alongside contemporary artists working across media, the exhibition investigates a current interest in process, materiality and truthfulness to medium.

Will history please let me go? Let me be, leave me alone  
There's a light, now there's a light, Coming down that mountainside 
Oh my, my, you lonely souls, I can feel it in my bones  - Jay Malinowski "There's a Light"

The Granchester Pottery, Large Bottle Vase 

"Established in early 2011, The Grantchester Pottery is a decorative arts company set up by artists Phil Root & Giles Round. Drawing historical precedent from Roger Fry’s Omega Workshops as well as other artists’ decorative arts studios like the Rebel Arts Centre, Hammer Prints & Atelier Martine, The Grantchester Pottery seeks to produce a series of utilitarian ceramics together with other decorative household items such as printed & woven textiles, wallpaper, painted furniture and hand painted murals. The Grantchester Pottery aims to substitute, wherever possible the directly expressive quality of the artist’s handling for the deadness of mechanical reproduction."  more here
