Andrew Dowden exhibits ceramics

Much-admired Isle of Wight artist Andrew Dowden exhibits some incredible work at the tropical Ventnor Botanic Garden this May, with some truly admirable contemporary ceramics and wall art.

Inspired to take up pottery while researching a book on the island's strong historical background in ceramics, Dowden is now one of the most respected local creatives, so it's worth checking out his showcase.

Hand-carving his works with the form more important than the function, he uses a strictly limited palette of glazes and slips to create a plethora of effects. Dowden's creations are spectacular.

The artist will be at the gardens from 10am until 5pm every day from May 2nd until the 5th demonstrating his workmanship and ability.

Entry to the exhibition is free and parking is provided, so what have you got to lose? You may well leave with a first-class present to hang on your wall when you finish your Isle of Wight holiday.
