AVID Gallery would like to introduce a new ceramic artist to the stable; John Roy.
John trained at Wanganui Polytechnic, graduating in 1997 with a Bachelor in Fine Arts majoring in ceramics.
Since then he has become a prominent New Zealand ceramicist who as Greg Donson said "has determinedly stuck with ceramics and successfully pushed the boundaries of the medium and over the last few years, has also created multi-part works that have occupied spaces in unexpected way". Based in Tauranga, John creates work that revolves around iconic forms and the social memory built around them.
Last time we had these "maquettes" (a series of small rugs by Dilana's illustrious stable of artists ) they sold out. We have been lucky enough to secure a new batch from Dilana. All great designs including work by Richard Killeen, Bing Dawe, Fane Flaws and Martin Poppelwell, at very affordable prices.
