From The Centre To The Edge – pottery par excellence

 

In 2011, the Archie Bray Foundation held a live auction called From The Centre To The Edge to celebrate 60 years of innovation and creativity in the ceramic arts at their wonderful facility. Based at Helena in Montana, the foundation offers residencies and specialized workshops to ceramic artists from around the world. Over the years it has become a premier testing ground for ceramic artists working together to share ideas and techniques. Some prominent ceramicists have studied and lectured at this colony for potters. I think the pieces that were on  offer at this auction are a testimony to the quality of ceramic arts and artists that have been influenced by Archie Bray.
