Chris Carter is a master potter who has made distinctive pots for well over forty years. A great admirer of Hans Coper and friend of Lucie Rie, his high level skills are applied to make pots which are elegantly designed and tactile pieces which have significant presence.
Within the many layers of his unique glazes, that are first built up and then partially taken back with abrasion and multiple firings, there is a search for the essence of an ancient landscape and for the shadows of its creators.
These gleanings, so passionately sought, reveal themselves only gradually, like flint artefacts occasionally turned up by the plough.
In 2016 an important monograph retrospective was published entitled 'Just Pots'. This gives insight into the Carter creative spirit and is well illustrated with pots from across his long making career. The book was written by Stuart Dickens, Ceramic Curator at Bevere Gallery and long time friend.
New work by Chris Carter will be in the gallery and on the website shortly.
