Dan Kelly

Post by studio-pots on January 29th 2015, 9:12 pm

Dan trained at Camberwell School of Art where his greatest influences were two of his tutors, Colin Pearson and Ewen Henderson.





These days Dan teaches at City Lit. in London as well as making pots. Until the last few years his work was unmarked but instantly recognizable, being thrown stoneware with black glaze and maybe a splash of white slip. The white pot above is porcelain.

his work certainly has a quality I like about it , but maybe not enough for me to invest , I was offered a piece by the guy that sold me a henderson , but I don't see enough to plunge in as yet , I think he has to add something else to appeal to me more ( scale or decor , i'm not sure , it's nearly there but not quite imo ) a bit Baldwin meets Welch baby .

Welcome home, Ed.

Nothing is black and white, except Dan's pots.

They are not everyone's cup of tea. I recall selling one to a lady, while her husband was rooting through my bargain pots and upon his return he pointed out that it looked like a money shot.

On her next visit she was going to buy another but her husband put her off and she bought something else. Shrugs

there is probably a moral to that story somewhere , husband /wife thingy , Laughter , the more you have made me think about the Kelly pieces the more I like ...black & White ,..still colours as far as I know and he does express them very well considering the limits, it could very well be that his pots will be one of the most sought after in future ,it only takes a simple twist of fate to become internationaly famous .

He is also one of the nicest people you are likely to meet and a good laugh.
