About the event


This Masterclass includes a digital presentation covering development of work, inspirations, and career. Following this a demonstration of techniques with the focus being wheel throwing and altering. 

We will break for lunch break 12 – 1pm please bring something along, tea and coffee will be provided and some scrumy sweets. 

After lunch further demonstration, discussion of surfaces (eg. glaze palette) and questions and answers.

“Neville French draws inspiration from the landscape to develop porcelain forms which feature subtly coloured matt glazes of an unusual surface quality and luminosity.  The shapes and soft tones echo the hill country of rural Victoria, and allude to the meditative aspects of this environment.  His forms are wheel thrown, altered and slowly scraped to develop a soft line and solidity.  As Neville describes: “I seek to distil an essence of purity and evoke notions of quietude and transcendence through the expressive use of coloured glaze and its relationship to form, tactility, weight and light.”
