Exciting times - We are Moving!

Tythegston Pottery, Joanna Howells spring sale

I look foward to welcoming you at my sale - hoping to have a really thorough clear out, so there will be bargains to be had.

We have loved being here in the beautiful village of Tythegston.  But it is time to move on.  I'll be building a new studio at the new house:
Isfryn, Caerbont, Abercrave, SA9 1SW

I will keep you informed with my updates as things go along.

'A Fine Line' - Cambridge Contemporary Art
11th March - 2nd April

I am showing work from two collections: Enduring Ephemeral and Folds and Facets

Maple Bowl.  Stoneware and Porcelain. Chun glaze interior.

Bowl - Maple - Enduring Ephemeral Collection

Stem Cup: Porcelain.
The surface is created by transfering the pattern of holes made by the grub of the dock beetle onto the porcelain, which is then etched.  Te difference in thicknesses is emplasied by the translucency of the porcelain.

Folds and Facets: Porcelain Jugs

'The Arrest of Ai Weiwei'

Ai-with-pot In 2013 I was commissioned by the Hampstead Theatre to make a reproduction of a Han Dynasty urn which featured in dramatic fashion during a new play by Howard Brenton about the arrest, detention and conviction of Ai Weiwei on allegations of tax evasion in 2012.

While my contribution was considered to be that of a 'traditional' potter, the making process revealed to me the workings of artists who employ artist-makers to realise their concept or vision.

You can read more about this intriguing experience in my blog.
We made a short video of the making process which Hampstead Theatre put on their website :

A finished piece was auctioned by the theatre.

'The Enduring and the Ephemeral'
Project awarded Arts Council funding in conjunction with the Botanic Garden of Wales. Exhibition dates TBA.
