Freddie Crossley

Freddie Crossley’s ceramic work seeks a deep-rooted connection to the past and future of our landscape. His consciousness that each piece is a marker of permanence within space and time inspires integrity and individuality in his craftsmanship. Working in the South Downs, his motifs speak of grassy earth and windswept sea and stone, counterbalanced by refined form and sculptural presence.

Fascinated by the stories our possessions gather and the hands that hold them, Freddie works also as a puppeteer and puppet maker, musician, writer and painter. His work uniquely bridges the spaces between visual art, theatre and domesticity.

The pieces on display are individually wheel-thrown, one off pieces. Fired-between 1280 and 1300oC, this high-fired stoneware is suitable for domestic use and is oven, microwave and dishwasher safe.
