Summary
  • “In Les Blakebrough: potter, Jonathan Holmes examines the work of Les Blakebrough - one of Australia’s finest and most innovative potters. The exuberance and vitality of Blakebrough’s work, coupled with his extraordinary technical mastery, makes it among the very best produced in Australia.” “Holmes takes us on a journey through Blakebrough’s career, detailing his early apprenticeship days at Sturt in New South Wales, the influential period of study in Japan and the subsequent years at Sturt as a potter and Director of the Sturt Workshops. Also covered is Blakebrough’s involvement in the development of an Australia-wide craft network. In 1972 Blakebrough moved to Tasmania to teach pottery at the Tasmanian School of Art and in 1978 established The Pot Company, resuming full-time work as a potter.”--Book jacket.
