Six Degrees of Collaboration

Northern Clay Center 2424 Franklin Avenue East Minneapolis, Minnesota 55406 USA
For the past eight months, six artists who work in porcelain have been shipping bisque ware to one another, forms that are distinctive and representative of their individual work. Their collaborators have then glazed and fired the bisqued work in their particular gaze palettes. While the potters in this exhibition were able to see the forms which they were finishing, the instruction to complete the pots in their own styles has resulted in a combination of forms and finishes that is occasionally as startling as a surrealist collage.

Cardew will be leaving Bovey Tracey in the near future and thus everything on site will have to find a new home or be recycled back to dust!
This process has already started and is gathering momentum. Very little will remain of the pottery plant, machinery, moulds and more importantly, Teapots, after the Easter holidays.
Anybody interested in securing Cardew Memorabilia or hunting for that elusive teapot to complete your collection....get over there quick!

Gräfsnäs castle teapot?

Johannes has been researching Gräfsnäs castle ruin near Gothenburg, Sweden. The former castle has an interesting history. According to the legend it was cursed by a woman that was badly treated by the landowner. She told that it would be plagued by fire three times with 100 years apart, and the castle was actually burnt in 1634, 1734 and 1834.
During the day of the fire in 1834 many people came to 'rescue' the things in the castle and many things were stolen.
It is believed that the teapot above came from the castle via a gardener.
Can it be dated to before or after the looting in 1834 I wonder? It was made by a company called Shaw & Fisher...anyone know anything about them?
