Classic pottery comes to Corinium Museum

Events, Features by Adam 1 Comment »

Benjamin, David, Simon & Patricia EelesGo potty over pottery at the Corinium Museum this winter and come and feast your eyes on a wide range of family wares.

The Eeles Family Pottery exhibition will be on display at the Park Street museum from November 3rd until January next year, and will showcase a vast collection of pottery dishes, platters, vases, jars, cooking pots, cheese dishes and wine jars.

All the pottery is available to buy, and is decorated individually using a wide range of techniques. It is mainly the Stoneware type, which is primarily made from clay, as well as Porcelain and Raku types. Inspiration for the patterns are mainly drawn from nature, with grasses, leaves, flowers and shells usually illustrated onto the items.

Naked Raku Vase by S EelesThe Eeles family – who are David and Patricia, and their sons Benjamin and Simon – work from a 17th Century coaching inn in west Dorset. In the past fifty years, David and his family have shown their pottery at over two hundred exhibitions across Great Britain.

David and Patricia & their sons Benjamin and Simon work together in the village of Mosterton.

The family work in partnership to produce an extensive range of pottery, mainly Stoneware with some Porcelain and Raku. The Stoneware and Porcelain is fired in a three chambered oriental type dragon kiln. The Raku is fired in a small cross draft wood fired kiln, lifted out with tongs and then flamed on sawdust. This gives the rainbow colours on the pots. The Raku is fired to 1000 degrees, the Stoneware and Porcelain to 1280 degrees centigrade. For more information, click on the Eeles Family website link below or visit their gallery at Mosterton.

Breadcrock by Simon EelesAnyone wanting further information on the museum and any events going on should contact Jane Bovenizer or Helen Arbon on 01285 655611 or email to find out more.
