Erskine, Hall & Coe is pleased to present a solo exhibition of acclaimed British artist Ewen Henderson’s work, which will comprise of ceramics and works on paper. The show will be open from the 6th of May through the 5th of June.
Born in Staffordshire in 1934, Ewen Henderson studied painting and sculpture in Cardiff, and later trained in ceramics under Hans Coper and Lucie Rie at the Camberwell School of Art. Henderson’s work was very closely linked to the landscape which surrounded him, which includes Avebury, Eden Valley in Cumbria, the Rollright Stones in north Oxfordshire, Orkney and Manorbier in Pembrokeshire. His vessels and tea bowls are hand-built and made of laminated stoneware.
“I fell in love with both the material and the vessel as a magical form; but it was a long time before I realised how I wanted to use it…I was seduced by the alchemy of change where you take a material…and it is transmogrified into something else.”—Ewen Henderson
The exhibition will be fully illustrated on our website on the day it opens and will be viewable from Monday through Saturday, 10:00 - 18:00 and free to attend.
