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.
