An exhibition of new and recent work by Richard Slee, whose exhibiting career began in the 1970’s, and has continued with many solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally. Slee’s ceramics often imitate other objects, such as saws and hammers ‘whose normal function clay is sublimely incompetent to perform’, as Mark Jones has noted. Technical skill is allied to a broad, comedic touch, where the shiniest of surfaces seems to accentuate the absurdist purpose.
Slee has brought together wall-mounted ‘frames’ - a collection of wall works exploiting both glazed clay combined with found materials. He describes these as ‘a study collection of pieces: pictures at an exhibition’
In association with Hales Gallery.
‘Richard Slee’ has been especially selected to form part of Farnham’s October Craft Month
