Michel Francois : River of Colour
Free kiln opening event at the Rural Workshops, Breage 

Saturday 17 May 2014 - 3 pm to 5 pm

On Saturday 17th May potter Michel Francois opens his studio doors to the public for another of his popular kiln opening events, where buyers and art enthusiasts can be the first to see his latest show of work straight from its final firing.

In celebration of spring this new collection, entitled River of Colour, brings together a dazzling palette of hues across a range of ceramic objects including wine cups, coffee beakers and Oriental dining ware. Francois’ elegant hand-thrown porcelain works will emerge hot from the kiln in a vivid stream of celadon yellows, sky blues, emerald greens, glowing ambers and the warm orange of Gunwalloe clay, interspersed with pieces in tones of pearl white, midnight blue and rich luminous black.
The 60 to 80 piece collection includes noodle bowls, Japanese yunomi cups and coffee beakers, elongated desert bowls and porcelain champagne and wine cups. The show also includes a collection of statement pieces including a contemporary porcelain wine carafe and uniquely beautiful jars and bowls in Maple, Plum, Beech and Chestnut ash glazes.
Visitors to this FREE event are welcome between 3 and 5pm. Artisan coffee courtesy of Espressini Coffee House Falmouth will be served along with luscious cakes from Peasouk Café Falmouth. All works are available for purchase with prices ranging from £10 to £500.
