Additional Information Midlands-based ceramicist Craig Underhill is fascinated by the interaction of mankind and the natural landscape. He explores his ideas in drawing and painting before committing himself to the clay. His pots speak of the influence of mankind on nature and nature on mankind. There is a subtle sense of order to his ceramics that suggest landscapes or seascapes. His pieces are evocative of places he has visited and journeys he has made, using a subtle colour palette and an extensive range of textural surfaces and mark marking.
