Glen Adamson was right when he said that a single one of Gareth Mason's pots "may contain as many ideas as a whole archaeological pit"— each work by Gareth Mason is a ceramic microcosm.
Intensely expressive and energetic in character, his sculptural vessels reflect an eagerness to capture the dynamics and the mysteries of creation. Immersed in the transformative power of fire, Mason’s spirit is freed through earth – his artistic medium – and thus his ceramics develop vibrant personalities of their own. It is metamorphic process which occasionally takes years: from wheel-throwing and through to all of the subsequent manipulations, firing and glazing, as well as composing of varied materials.
