  • Hullabaloo Art Space -  Ceramic works by Robert Franklin

An exhibition of works by Bannockburn Ceramacist Robert Franklin.

Robert says, "This exhibition combines both traditional glazed pieces and a process called Saggar Firing. My philposophy is for more of the fire and less of the glaze. Ceramic artworks are by definition a three dimensional form however the burnished satin finish of these pieces lends a fouth tactile dimension."

Robert lives and works in Bannockburn, near Cromwell, Central Otago. He was a part time studio potter for a decade in the 1970’s. His recent return to ceramics was a very rewarding experience. Deciding to once again sit at a pottery wheel to see what happened released dramatic results. His knowledge and experience in studio pottery remained with him in the head and the hands but the pieces produced were like nothing that had gone before. He now utilises that knowledge and new learning to create works in many of the genres of ceramics including Rake, Saggar firing, Stoneware and Porcelain. He exhibits locally and nationally.
