THE BACK CORNER POTTERS
As a non-profit ceramic arts collective, one of our Gallery’s mandates is
to support potters. In November 2021 we set up the New Potters Corner, at the back of our Gallery. The “Corner” provided potters, who
create small amounts of work, a space to display their pieces and an
opportunity to test the retail market.
Four potters are featured at a time for a six month period: one set over
Xmas (November through April) and a second set over the summer
(May through October). This allows each group to have their work
in the gallery during one of our busiest periods.
In September 2022 we changed the name of the “Corner” to “The Back
Corner Potters” as we didn’t want to imply that the potters featured
are new to potting. This is far from the case as some potters have been
potting for 20 or more years.
Some of these potters are taking ceramic courses at North Island
College and some have their own studios.
