The Creative Artisan: Richard Naylor

Richard Naylor has his special corner at the Titirangi Markets, where he displays his wares and shows off his craft at the wheel. Working with concentration, but always with a ready smile and happy to explain and answer questions. Last Sunday he had a youthful audience who watched him transform a lump of clay into a shapely vase. (And they got a chance at forming their own figures from bits of clay.)

The City Daily Photo community’s theme for Mai is “the creative artisan”. Click here for thumbnails of all participants.

Richard at the Titirangi Village Market

Richard is a regular at the Titirangi Village Market, with a fine display of his pottery. And an added bonus is the fact that he brings his wheel, working on his pieces as we watch. No handshakes, though, but generous smiles and explanations!

Art Appreciation

Last night was the opening of the Auckland Studio Potters Annual Exhibition “Fire & Clay” at the Pah Homestead (TSB Bank Wallace Art Centre). The show will run until December 8.

Having spent all afternoon at lunch with friends, then drinks and nibbles followed by speeches at the opening, my sentiments were neatly summarised by Levi in this picture who expressed his feelings rather more openly. Thanks for the shot, mate, creating a island of peace amidst all the crowd!

To prove that I was not completely reduced to people watching, I add an image from the exhibition. Ceramic artist Richard Naylor has featured on these pages before. He had two works accepted into the show. Here a striking collection of “13 Blue Bottles”. And as the red dot shows, it sold right away. Congratulations Richard.
