Next Exhibition in our Front Room "Other Times Other Places"

Heather and Stuart first met in Hawkes Bay in 1975 and built a brick diesel kiln together, rather pretentiously call “The Buddha’s Armpit”!  . Inspired by attending a “Do” at Driving Creek, they moved to Coromandel in a Bedford K truck, and a Morris Minor with two children [Heather's] and a dog [Stuart's]. Eventually life took other turns and directions and 35 years or so later, they met unexpectedly again at ASP!
The title of the Show, Other Times and Other Places, refers to this long association as well as to the work itself.

Heather explains that the toys have their origin in the past and in our own nostalgia for the innocence of childhood. Now separated and individualised, they live in a kind of unease of being. All is not as it seems. They experience the anxiety of their transition into an unknown future and their “not yet humanness”

Stuart's work is a combination of saltglazed pots, woodfired in the ASP kilns and work from a recent trip to Jingdezhen, China. These pots are slipcast from moulds made from original thrown pieces. In China, he experimented with some slab built porcelain and hopes to develop this further on a return residency in 2019
