Richard Slee


Richard Slee's work has been exhibited world-wide and is in many public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Richardís facility with clay, his dazzling use of glazes and his visually inspired creations have led him to be described as the 'Grand Wizard of Ceramics' by Oliver Watson, Keeper of Ceramics at the Victoria & Albert Musuem.
