Graham & Sally Newing – Pembrey Pottery
Graham was educated at Wimbledon School of Art in 1957 for four years with a further year at Denby Pottery as a thrower. He moved on to manage the Guernsey Pottery for 5 years & then to Longleat House to start a workshop with Lord Weymouth & the Bull Mill Group. In 1969 he opened his own studio in Westbury, Wiltshire.
Graham works in stoneware & porcelain thrown on the wheel. The organic shapes are individually decorated by scraffito through coloured glazes. An influence of classical Greek, African art, with elements of art nouveau can be seen. He has had exhibitions both in Britain & Europe and his work has been described as colourful, European, elegant & sophisticated. The pottery relocated to Pembrey, Carmarthenshire, South Wales in 2006
