Autumn Show - Andrew Dowden Ceramic Artist Free

Thursday, 13th September to Tuesday, 18th September - 10am to 5pm - Free Admission to exhibition, Abbey and grounds

The Quarr Abbey Art Gallery, near Fishbourne, Ryde, will be showing distinctive, handmade, hand-carved studio ceramics and painted wall art by island artist Andrew Dowden.

Andrew draws inspiration for his work from many sources including: archaeology, architecture, machinery, engineering and nature. The wheel is central to the work from which many forms develop, including composite slab-built pieces. Using a limited glaze palette, he strives to achieve complementary forms and surface textures, hand-carving being a primary interest, the colour of the clay body being integral to the surface design.

Andrew will be in attendance at the exhibition and will be happy to discuss his work. All pieces are for sale and Quarr Abbey, a registered charity, will receive a percentage of all exhibition sales.
