We have some superb sculptural and table pieces in the gallery at the moment from the renowned Devon ceramicist Colin Kellam.¬†After studying sculpture and ceramics at Loughborough College, Colin Kellam went as assistant to Marianne de Trey at Shinners Bridge Pottery, Dartington from 1960 to 1967. Over a seven year period Colin helped produce the standard domestic stoneware of the pottery, whilst at the same time developing his highly individual style and firing the results in his own wood kiln. In 1968 he set up his pottery at the Lion Brewery, Totnes, building a large oil burning kiln (now in its 4th decade). A comprehensive range is produced by Colin and his workforce, including oven-to-tableware, lamp bases, garden pots, large decorated platters and Colin’s much sought after and diverse bird, animal and fish sculptures.
