Gordon Baldwin & Ewen Henderson featured work by two of the most important and influential 20th century British artists working in clay. Alongside pots from the Eton College Collection, the exhibition featured a small selection from what became a large group of over 1,000 pots collected by the late Mike O’Connor.
Both [Baldwin and Henderson] have shown how malleable clay can be in terms of three-dimensional drawing. Form is something to be reinvented, continually re-shaped, shifting, not reduced to some static or repeated ‘style’…. It is not about resolution, but about asking new questions, entirely new ones every time you make a piece. (David Whiting)
