The planning for Mick’s retrospective exhibition this Autumn is now well under way at Wobage, touring from Ruthin Craft Centre, North Wales, which has also now published Mick’s biography written by Emmanuel Cooper and Amanda Fielding. The book will be available for sale at £20 from Wobage Makers Gallery. The biography is beautifully illustrated throughout, and celebrates Mick’s life and work; from Arts school in 1945, to their first pottery in Marchmont St. London, then Prestwood and finally the move to Wobage in 1977. Amanda Fielding writes of Mick’s international influence, afterwords from Philip Hughes of Ruthin, Sheila and Ben Casson.
The exhibition will be held in the Wobage threshing barn, the ‘cathedral’ as Mick called it, featuring as part of Herefordshire Council’s Art Week, ‘H’Art’, opening evening of Friday 10th with live jazz and refreshments, and then until Sunday 19th September 2010, 10am – 5pm. We hope that you can join us in celebration.
