Philip Sutton RA ceramics

Philip Sutton’s remarkable ceramics are now on show at Sladers Yard and can be viewed online here.

‘I’ve always liked the idea of drawings that bend’ says Philip Sutton RA.

‘He had worked  with a number of pottery studios, including the resident potter at Poole, when Douglas Wolfe, who had bought the famous Fulham Pottery, asked him to work on a project with the ceramicist  Jean-Paul Landreau.  The result was a successful Cork Street exhibition in 1987. Sutton enjoyed working on pots and continued to work with Landreau, as well as with other ceramicists, after the Fulham Pottery commission ended.’

[Simon Tait in Philip Sutton Life and Work 2008 Royal Academy of Arts]

Many of the works showing at Sladers Yard now have never been shown publicly before. Philip Sutton is no longer painting ceramics and the pieces that remain from before and after 1987 are absolutely unique. If you would like further information please contact us on
