The last few years have seen him return to using lustre, this time applied to a terra sigillata surface, raku fired and smoked. The combination of gold and smoked polished terra sigillata is irresistible – a rich sensuous surface.
He feels that above all he is a potter who responds primarily to materials and processes. The forms of many of his pots refer to pieces from pre-history, especially the Bronze Age, and have developed from an ancient pot seen in a museum many years ago. He has a collection of shards found in gardens and fields which span a period from Roman to the 19th century. He finds the marks left by those long dead potters to be so eloquent – we leave the same marks in our work today – it is like a language left by potters to be read by potters. He hopes to add a few more words to the vocabulary.
New work by John Wheeldon will be in the gallery and on the website shortly.
