Richard Godfrey is a truly inspirational potter who always challenges preconceptions about what can be done with clay. Renowned for fun and quirky brightly decorated functional wares, Richard spent much of 2013 producing a brand new line of slab built forms.
Peter Ward, owner of the Online Ceramics Gallery said, ‘I was really pleased to be able to visit Richard over the holiday period and talk with him about his work. The new abstract vessels are a brave step away from the security of functionality. I was really pleased to be able choose, with Richard, seven brilliant examples of his new work and I’m looking forward to making them available on-line.’
‘Richard has more technical knowledge than any other potter I know. Richard is the potter that other potters go to for advice. But whilst building larger slab pieces Richard continues to push against the boundaries of his materials. On leaving Richard said to me, with some fire in his belly, “I’m going to make some great pots this year” and I have no doubt he will.’
