PURE FORMS | Richard Naylor
The traditions of modernist sculpture and japanese pottery culminate in Richard Naylor's style. The Waitakere based ceramicist fuses the power of simple form with organic and tactile glazes.
Naylor's works are produced using a combination of throwing and coiling. Every piece is unique due to his process of hand impressing details, applying experimental glazes and mixing different types of clay.

STORIES IN CLAY | Robin Ranga
Robin Ranga's thoughtful figurative works explore universal ideas of psychology, sociology and culture.
Working in clay, Robin creates intricate figures that mount on the wall, seemingly walking into the distance. Considered symbols are included to give us clues to the character of each figure, but the identities are ultimately concealed- leaving room for the viewer's personal interpretations and narratives.
