STOP PRESS – 27 March 2012
The very last of David’s pots which will soon be on sale at the Artparade Gallery, 1 Victoria Road, Saltaire West Yorkshire BD18 3LA. Tel: 01274 590619. Please contact the gallery for more details.
As mentioned at David’s funeral, there is now a unique opportunity to obtain one of DW’s last remaining pots. His Brier Hey workshop in Mytholmroyd is being taken over by a local potter’s co-operative from April 1st 2012 and the last of his pots must go by then. I have created a list and photos of these pots on the Picasa website and this is the link.
We are also having an open day at his workshop on Sunday March 25th from 11am to 4pm, when you can come and pick up any ordered pieces, or buy any of the left overs in person. We would like all his friends who want his work to be able to have some, and to pay what you are able or feel you want to donate. It is most important that this pottery goes to his friends, however much or little you can afford. Some people may not be able to afford anything but that is really OK and is what David would have wanted. Any monies received will go towards David’s Trust fund and the bursary to help emerging potters.
Please let me know which pieces you would like and I will allocate on a first come first served basis and try to indicate ASAP on the picasa website as we go along, which pieces have been ordered/taken. There should be enough for everyone who wants something, though it may prove that some pieces will be more popular than others, in which case we (the executors) may have to decide who gets what! It may be possible to send smaller pieces, but we won’t have massive resources for secure packing and posting so personal collection will be very much preferred and appreciated. Parcels also run the risk of damage in transit.
Please don’t hold back – ask for the pieces that you would like. This really is your last chance to get some of David’s unique work.
Any queries, please call me.
