Blast from the past

A collection of archive pots by ceramic artist Jon WilliamsPeter Nahum visited Eastnor Pottery and purchased a few of my sculptural ceramics, some time ago back in the 90′s. It was a pleasant surprise recently when this lovely photo  dropped into my inbox with the following message:

Just to let you know we still love your pots and they have pride of place.

Thanks Peter - I’m so pleased!

MITM exhibition ends

The inspiring and much toured Made In The Middle exhibition curated by Craftspace ended in Northhampton at the weekend. Here’s a brilliant video made by a couple of visitors playing my Percussive Pots when the show called in at Rugby City Art Gallery earlier this year:

Fresh Air 2013 Quenington

A couple of standing sculptures created by artist Jon Williams exhibited at Fresh Air 2013 sculpture exhibition QueningtonI’ve been exhibiting a couple of pieces at Fresh Air 2013 at Quenington Old Rectory in Gloucestershire.
