Nick Stedman: The Weathered Collection, at Gatehouse Arts

Initially my research in ceramics was focused upon developing unique glazes based on the personally generated theme of the ‘Aesthetics of Wear’. I was fascinated by both geological weathering and the patination of manmade artefacts. I wanted to see how far I could go with the interpretation of both these found surface textures. Having achieved unique glaze recipes that captured and re-interpreted the surface textures I went on to develop a form that complemented the glazes.
