Wood-Fired Stoneware & Porcelain

Stephen Parry trained at Croydon College of Art 1974-77, Dartington Workshop 1977-79 and in France using wood-fired kilns. Stephen set up his present pottery at Ryburgh, near Fakenham in rural Norfolk in 1981 and makes a range of functional pots and one-off pieces using stoneware and porcelain clays.
Glazes are made from different types of wood ash. All his work is fired using wood, either in a 120cuft Phoenix Kiln or in an Anagama kiln.

Monumental thrown bottle. Wood-fired with
sancia glaze, drips and pours.
‘I pursue beauty, and search for an aesthetic response in the person looking at my pots’ (Stephen Parry article, Ceramic Review)

About ten years ago Lone Borgen & Stephen Parry began to make collaborative work. Although their pieces consciously honour their shared early influence they began to explore an exciting new visual conversation, perhaps unique in contemporary ceramics, in which very distinct and in some ways seemly conflicting approaches move together and bounce off each other over the surface of the clay.
