This exhibition and book shine a light on the development of Neil’s skill and artistry with clay and fire.
“Twenty years to learn, twenty years to forget, and then the real work begins to find your voice”
Neil Grant is an artist and a ceramicist. In his twenties he learned to work with clay, to throw, to mould, to coil, to slab build, to glaze, to fire a kiln, to decorate simple and complex surfaces. He has been a leader in ceramics education for over 40 years. His sixty-year career as a ceramic artist spans the years from the flowering of domestic rustic pots to large sculptural ceramics and major architectural commissions. He is well known for his distinctive reworking of traditional Shino-Japanese pottery into a fusion of Anglo-Oriental forms but recreating them in new and exciting ways.
This exhibition and associated events are held in conjunction with the Festival of Ceramics which will take place in Dunedin over Labour weekend 2021, when Ceramics NZ holds its 60th National Diamond Jubilee Exhibition.
