This exhibition explores the relationship we have to our natural world and how, through nature’s part within the creative process, we can immortalise what it yields to us, be it wood, clay, ash or its very own scenic beauty. Debuting in this show is the sublime sculptural work of Malcom Martin and Gaynor Dowling who have elevated sculpture in wood to the highest level of artistic success. Their work is held in several museum collections worldwide including The Boston and Philadelphia Museums of Fine Art and the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, and has been exhibited internationally. Kerry Harding makes a return to the gallery for her first large collection of paintings after a successful debut in early summer. She will be providing a large collection of new works which seek to deconstruct and re-construe landscapes with arresting depth and subtlety. James Hake also returns to the gallery with a major collection of brand new work. James has been a gallery favourite with our clients since 2016 and we are delighted that “Breathe” sees a large scale return of his work here. James is a master in glaze formulation and manipulation, his vessels adorned with fluid fusions of ancient Chinese glaze types including Nuka ash glazes, iron rich Tenmoku and cloud like Chun. The exhibition is also joined by the return of Jane Ansell’s moving takes on British landscape and out relationship to it. Her paintings have always been fabulously received and for ‘Breathe’ she is providing us with new works that showcase her ability to make paintings that transport us to a twilight world and perception of natural beauty.

'In All Line Of Order' comes from a well known quote in Shakespeare's 'Troilus and Cressida' whereby Ulysses remarks upon the connectivity and co-dependeance of all things known and observed in the universe. Fitting then that this show features artists that seek to explore similar themes in their work. The flowing, fluid and emabracing forms of Ashraf Hanna's work compiments the observations of our emotional connection to place and heavens in Felicity Keefe's work. Melanie Goemans' work equally bonds us to the natural world with symathetic and gentle connections and observations of often overlooked floral beauty.
'Conscious perception' is the new exhibition opening on Saturday September 8th at The Stratford Gallery. Taking the time to understand our place in time now and in the past reflects on the work of both artists featuring in this pending exhibition.
Susan Laughton produces work that reflects her very deliberate mindfulness about the places that she visits and the experiences they create. Subtle and peaceful recreations of the world about her, the line of a strcuture, the angle of a roof beyond a tree-line or the suggestion of form from an abstract view of life. We are pleased to announce that we will have a major collection of new paintings from Susan in this exhibition.
Richard Miller will be known to the millions of viewers who watched the BBC's 'Great Poettery Throwdown'. Richard was the on-screen technician who worked trielessly to save the contestants' work when it came to the drying and firing stage. Many are not aware that Richard is a very successful and accomplished potter in his own right and has been a gallery favouorite since we opened in 2016. His work explores and juxtaposes style, form and history onto vessels that at a glance tell one story but with closer examination reveal a lot more. The gallery is delighted to announce this major exhibition of new work, new forms and ideas in the show 'Conscious perception'.
Both Susan and Richard will be in attendance for the opening of 'Conscious perception' on Saturday 8th September from 2pm. Please join us for a glass of wine and a chance to discuss their work.

Margaret Curtis is a gallery favourite and we have been honoured to represent her work since we opened in 2016. This new exhiition of work will include her sublime celadon and shino glazes clothing the black clay base she is so well known for. Many western potters try to encapsulate the essence of Japansese wabi-sabi in their work but struggle to achieve more than a nod to the aesthetic and sentiment, Margaret's work portrays the homage effortlessly. Her time in Japan is still in her pores and the manifestation of that cultural, spiritual and technical experience is so very evident in her work.
Margaret has managed, yet again, to walk the tight rope of control and chance exquisitely with this new collection of tea ware, sake ware, platters, bottles and abstracted forms. Reserve time in your diary to view her work in the gallery or online from Saturday 24th February 2018, it is perfection in imperfection at the highest level.

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’.
Howard & Emma Clegg, Directors, The Stratford 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.

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.
