Welcome to our new web site. The plan is that we will be able to update it ourselves so we should be able to get new works on view sooner, and have an up to date gallery of paintings and ceramic art works currently available in the gallery.
We have just returned from the USA where we attended an International Academy of Ceramics Conference in Santa Fe. Royce has been a member of the Academy since 1988. Santa Fe is a lovely town of brown adobe buildings with a tree filled plaza in the centre. There were a wide range of presenters at the conference including Native American potters. On our final day we all travelled to Taos where we visited 3 museums and Taos Pueblo, a functioning village and world heritage site.
Prior to the conference we joined a pre-conference tour in New York. It was an exciting programme with a range of visits to museums, galleries, potters workshops, a huge sculpture park called Storm King outside of New York, and a day trip to Philadelphia. As we were a small group we were able to get behind the scenes with the ceramic curators of both the Metropolitan Museum and the Philadelphia Art Gallery. They were big days and New York is fantastic……. And the only rain was on the night we arrived in New York.
