Richard Bawden Paintings & Prints | Richard Batterham Pots
We are delighted to be exhibiting paintings and prints by Richard Bawden together with pots by Richard Batterham, both lifelong friends celebrating their 80th birthdays this year.
Richard Bawden RWS NEAC RE is a painter, printmaker and designer working predominantly in lino, etching and watercolour. His work has a graphic, linear quality and a strong sense of craftsmanship which translates naturally into many forms. These have included book illustration, murals for restaurants, engraved glass, church windows and doors, a poster for London Transport, mosaics and furniture.
Richard Batterham is one of the most highly respected and admired potters of his generation making some of the finest stoneware in the world. Born in 1936, Richard went to Bryanston School where is spent time making pottery under the guidance of Donald Potter, a student of Eric Gill, who had also worked with Michael Cardew.
Richard has been making pots for 55 years and although he does not mark his pots, they are unmistakably his....wonderfully earthy and practical to be used and held every day. ’They’re things to hold, not to gawp at’ he says.
