Featured artists this week is - Bob McQuarrie.

 

Bob McQuarrie
My work is functional stoneware made on the potter's wheel using local materials as much as possible. The clays used are entirely formulated from locally sourced material. Sometimes clay can be used directly as dug, but usually it needs to be processed to remove unwanted material such as roots, stones or sand. Often clays from several sources are combined to achieve a workable clay body.

Glazes are formulated to produce the desired decorative effects. Many glazes utilise wood ash to produce unique glaze effects. Often a glaze will be more suited to a particular clay body and sometimes pots are left unglazed to feature the texture of the clay body.

My kiln is wood fired using dry pine as fuel. This is a plentiful low-cost fuel, grown on our property, and comes from trees we planted about thirty years ago. Wood firing enhances the pot's surface when ash is deposited on the unglazed clay, fusing to a natural glaze. Ash can also be saved for use in glazes.

This site started out as an effort to provide ceramic artists in Christchurch, New Zealand with an outlet for their work after the devastating earthquake that essentially destroyed the business district, and much of urban Christchurch in 2010. After suffering the loss of their physical outlets in the earthquakes some of these studio artists formed the Cracked Pots Society and launched this website which gives the public a chance to again see and buy their work.

Since that time ceramic artists have found new ways to display and sell their work. In 2015 NZ Potters took over the site and offerred it as a free service to members in New Zealand.

ceramicsonline.co.nz has now been handed over to Lawrence Ewing who hopes to further develop the site and offer it to all potters and ceramic artists in New Zealand.
