Note

Tony White (b.1948) grew up in Leicestershire. He trained at evening classes and is partly self-taught. He makes abstract vessel forms with strong brightly coloured decoration but is best known for his bird and animal sculptures. All his work is hand-modelled, raku-fired stoneware: the form is taken out of the kiln while still hot, plunged into sawdust and cooled rapidly to give the crackled effect on the glaze. Tony & Barbara White set up their present workshop in Cardiganshire over 25 years ago, producing a range of contemporary studio pottery to their own designs. Their production now focusses mailnly on stylized animals and birds and rectangular and triangular vase-type forms.
