Masters of Slipware: East & West | Clive Bowen & Masaaki Shibata

A catalogue to accompany the exhibition, Masters of Slipware.

We are delighted to present two masters, Clive Bowen & Masaaki Shibata, together for the first time in the United Kingdom, linking artists working in two distant parts of the world who share the same enduring passion for the language of clay. Masters of Slipware succeeds in joining two potteries from east and west: Sasayama (Tamba, Japan) and Shebbear (Devon). Together, in Clive’s words, these two masters ‘communicate through pots’ and both believe in the ‘values of craftsmanship and truth to materials above all else.'
