From Potters Lane

Visit Retford Park to view a new exhibition of unique garden-inspired works by Southern Highlands-based ceramicist and sculptor, Neil Boughton.

Neil combines a love of antiquities with a love of lustres to produce a distinctive range of ceramics. He uses silver and other rare materials to produce exotic glaze surfaces on wheel-thrown forms influenced by medieval and classical ceramics.

Neil has exhibited and sold his ceramics throughout Australia.  His works are also sought after overseas, including works commissioned by the Sheraton Hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

For this exhibition Neil is focusing on works inspired by the garden.
