Leading New Zealand studio potter John Parker returns with his latest body of work, elegantly formed vessels and objects finished with flawless precision.

A Master of Arts in Ceramics from the Royal College in London, and the influence of European masters Lucie Rie and Hans Coper, equipped John with a strong foundation for the disciplined and intelligent style for which he is now recognised.

John has often engaged with pointed intellectual arguments in the creation of his work - most obviously the debate surrounding the handmade; craft versus production in ceramics. Using his advanced technical skills, John strives to mimic by hand the aesthetic perfection of mass produced ceramic work. Although devoid of the 'makers touch' which identifies most studio ceramics, his works are handmade with every detail and mark attended to.
