Eddie Curtis - Modern Master - Solo Show June 17th - July 8th 2017

Exhibiting the development of Eddie Curtis' globally recognised "Blast Series" of work

In March 2017 Eddie Curtis showed his work in Munich in the exhibition titled ‘Modern Masters’ . Qualification for this event, a special crafts and applied arts exhibition featuring over 30 world renowned artists working in various disciplines, was that each artist should ‘stand for the aesthetics of our time’. Mastership was defined as having many origins: ‘the superior use of the material, functional finesse, technical precision, elegance of form, colour, humour and classic understatement.’   

Here at The Stratford Gallery we fully endorse and would like to celebrate this statement of achievement. We are delighted to show not only new and exciting work that Eddie is currently creating but also provide the unique opportunity of presenting some of his earlier works illustrating the complete journey of discovery and creativity since the inception of his work; now so well recognised as ‘The Blast Series’.

New Olivia Walker tea bowls now in the gallery.

Limited new collection of Olivia Walker's tea bowls are available for purchase in the gallery.

Right now Olivia Walker is getting a lot of attention in the Cermaics world and we think rightly so.  We have been telling our visitors that we believe she is one to watch because of her uniquely textured ceramics that marry natural, organic decoration with exquisitely executed ceramic wheel work.  Ceramic Review recently echoed our sentiments in their "One to watch" editorial where homage was paid to Olivia's super ability to bring out the best qualities of the material with which she works.   

The Stratford Gallery is pleased to let our visitors know that we have just received a new collection of tea bowls from Olivia along with two larger bowls.  We do not expect them to hang around for long so please feel free to call us for more information.

New to The Stratford Gallery - Peter Hayes Sculpture

New to The Stratford Gallery - Peter Hayes Sculpture

The gallery is delighted to announce that Peter Hayes, renowned British sculptor, has new works being exhibited from April 8th 2017

The Stratford Gallery is delighted to welcome Peter Hayes' new sculptural work to the gallery.  Peter is a hugely accomplished sculptor with significant private and public collections of his work all around the world.  His work is part of collections at the Brussells Museum of Modern Art and the Scottish National Gallery with additional public collections in London, USA, Canada and Germany.

Peter's work is a product of his global curiosity and skills and experince honed from studies and decades of practical application.  He trained in ceramics in the UK and Africa and his subsequent journies has seen him travel extensively thorugh Africa, India, Nepal and Japan always with the purpose of finding inspiration and local crafting skills.

Peter produces ceramic and bronze sculptures that are unmistavably his.  His ceramic pieces are fired in gas kilns slowly with the flames allowed to lick the surfaces of his creations producing a depth of colour and richness of texture.  Spending much of his year in India, Peter's bronzes are cast in his favoured Indian foundry, trusted by him for their ancient expertise and sympathetic handling of his work.
