Exhibition dates: 4 October - 25 November

Yvette and Peter’s latest collaboraton sees them combine Yvette’s painting with Peter’s ceramics, producing works that relate in either colour, pattern or style. Yvette has been exhibiting regularly for the past 35 years and now enjoys the experience with Peter.

Whilst the majority of Yvette’s paintings are based on the local landscape, she creates still life paintings that tie in with Peter’s patterned sgraffito ceramics.  She is inspired by light, shadows and compositional patterns in the environment. Her work tends to be rural, where landforms are obvious, utilising pastel, oil and acrylic to suit the subject and technique.

Peter has been potting since 2008 and for this exhibition, has created a variety of domestic ware and some purely decorative pieces. He uses a number of different bodies ranging from porcelain to stoneware and local clays. Peter is constantly modifying and testing glazes to suit the pieces being created.  He works predominantly using gas kilns with firing temperatures of 1300c, producing different effects with a reduction atmosphere.
