Richard Batterham and Friends – Ceramics Exhibition

Saturday 8 Apr 2023 - Sunday 18 Jun 2023
Richard Batterham - Lidded casserole

Richard Batterham (1936-2021) referred to his lifestyle as a ‘quietness of living’.

Batterham undertook every stage of the process of making pottery himself, from processing raw clay to firing his huge three-chamber oil-fired climbing kiln. He made useful pots based on successful forms that he developed over the years: jugs, bottles, plates, mugs, bowls and storage jars. These he could scale up or down effortlessly. Despite repeatedly throwing the same forms, he achieved singularity in each piece with variations in size, decoration and glaze – usually wood ash, manganese, or salt-glaze.
