The curator's invited artist this year is ceramicist Stephen Parry
Stephen Parry trained at Croydon College of Art, the Dartington Workshop and in France using wood-fired kilns. He set up the Ryburgh pottery, near Fakenham in 1980.
He designed and built the 120 cu ft kiln in clay, which holds around 700 pots and reaches a top temperature of 1300 degrees C. The flames and ash that enter the kiln during the firing create a variety of colours and texure on both the glazed and unglazed clay, making each pot unique, depending on its position in the kiln. He has recently been working on large scale thrown pots, some over 150 cm tall - and there are four such beautiful pots to be seen in Cley 17 - pictures to follow soon!
