Exhibition of paintings by John Halls, from the 10th April to the 15th April

Posted on March 20, 2013 by

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After spending 4 years at St Martins studying National Diploma in Design fine art, I became interested in Japanese/ Korean pottery.

I spent from 1966 until 1995 in the teaching profession but in the ‘70’s  took up pottery as a part time activity and attended an evening class under Tony Gant.

In 1979 I joined the ‘Surrey Guild of Craftsmen’ and later ‘London Potters’ and began producing Raku Pottery.

In 1995 I began painting again and concentrated on the human form.

This exhibition of paintings was chosen from my work during the period  1995 – 2005.

Children will only be allowed entry to the exhibition

accompanied by a parent or Guardian.
