Kent Potters Annual Exhibition - Photo's

Post by Celtic_Fan on October 28th 2013, 6:52 pm

I popped over to the West End House Gallery at Smarden yesterday, to see the Annual Exhibition (selling exhibition) of the Kent Potters Association.

http://www.west-end-house-gallery.co.uk/

It was well worth the visit.
The West End House Gallery, is a small Gallery (two medium sized rooms) in the village of Smarden - a very scenic part of Kent.
Welcoming friendly staff in a nice cosy Gallery.
With almost 300 exhibits from 34 Potters, there was a good range of subjects and styles, at a wide range of prices - 7-560. Although the bulk of it was probably below 60.

I've taken pic's of most things - not just those that interested me.
I've added some detail - Sorry to the many who have been omitted or not mentioned.
I do have details on several of the others, so ask for any info, if you want to know about any specific items and if I have it I'll add replies.



A few animal sculptures by Suki Stokes from Maidstone.
They are all hand made and finished by Smoke Firing. I just had to buy one!!



A large stoneware Marine Iguana, by Bev Burt from West Wickham.



A 'double walled bowl with red glaze, by Tony Foard from Barming.



Right - White Raku pot by Jane Bridger from Tunbridge Wells.

That's all Folks. Hope you've enjoyed looking at them. If you get the chance, do pop down and have a look for yourself. The sold items are being replaced, so the display is changing all the time as new items are added.

Now here is the one I bought - Tink, Shetland coloured.
