Spherical Vase h 20cm, Stephen Fletcher

Hello Everyone, I’m a newbie on Clay Club so I thought I would go ahead and introduce myself and post a couple of images of my work. I’ve been around clay for a long while. My first solo exhibition was way back in 1978. I was full time for seven years before becoming a senior lecturer in ceramics at Monash University in Melbourne Australia. I gave that away after 6 years and went back to my studio. My last exhibition was in 1996 after which I gave the whole Ceramics thing away for a few years. I came back to the fold last year and set up a new studio in Gordon , a small country town about an hour’s drive west of Melbourne. I’m out of town on a 10acre bush block amongst kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and yes, a few snakes. I make stoneware and porcelain. I’m mainly a wheel thrower but do a bit of hand building and slip casting from time to time. Well that's enough about me. I hope my pioto's posted alright. Check out my website if you would like to see some more.
