Gordon Hill 1928 – 2019

Gordon Hill

Our resident artist and Veronica’s partner, Gordon Hill, born in Bolton, sang in the Rossendale male voice choir, headmaster of Stafford Leys school in Leicester, charismatic international football referee, outreach educationalist in the United States, and latterly an artist with a huge love of colour, died here in Exeter on 21st March.

Always a free spirit, we will miss him very much as will his family in America. His latest work below. A lover of colour, he painted till the end.

We are planning at our Open Studio in July to show Gordon’s work, right up to his last pieces, and include open discussions on the effect and use of colour when Alzheimer’s causes other methods of communication to begin to falter.

Pottery

By Veronica Gosling.

Pottery prices are listed here.

Many of the older photographs here are the result of a lovely photography day out with Tony Cobley at Teignmouth.

I buy whiteware from a pottery in Stoke, and hardly ever change the first mark I make. The lovely blue glaze comes from Valauris in the south of France, and I have never found such a brilliant blue here, though I’ve tried.

The chickens date from the new millennium and continue to breed. My new designs in bright, primary colours are fun to do. MIRO someone said … well! Everything is fired high enough to be oven, dishwasher and microwave-proof and I quite often do commissions for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings etc.

A Sunday at Studio 36 – Nov 25th

We had a very successful Sunday at Studio 36 on 25th November!

Open Studio 22/23 September

We had a fun exhibition of children’s response to our fence project as the highlight of our OPEN STUDIO weekend; devised by Mary Bramble of our earlier sculpture trail event, with coloured marker pens tied to the fence, and removable pictures of faces from our garden sculptures. We’ve had about 40 passing young geniuses contribute names, likes, and habitats ranging from Seoul, Australia and Exeter as they have passed along Denmark Rd.
