Our  exhibition Skepsi @ Malvern, June 17 to July 2 is titled ‘Masala’ and it is an exceptional collection of wood fired ceramics by our internationally renowned artist and author Owen Rye. In Pakistan, where Owen Rye worked years ago, ‘Masala’ is a word meaning mixture of spices, this exhibition is a mixture.


“My work had been gradually changing over the past few years and this exhibition is a mix of new and old. There is work from my very last Anagama firing, over Easter 2017. There is work from my new small wood fired kiln; I have been learning the potential of this for a few years now. And there is work fired in my gas kiln which I have been using to explore new glaze effects. This takes me back to my beginnings as a student when I was fascinated with glazes. ‘Masala’ represents a time of transition. The mixture is there – hope the spice shows through”, Owen Rye.


It is with great enthusiasm that we invite you to share this exhibition with us.

We look forward to seeing you very soon,
