Mike Child pottery hanging fish
Mike Child of Paragon Pottery is a studio potter in Ramsgate. He teaches from his studio and makes his own pieces, which range from the functional to scuptural and includes a host of wonderful imaginative and inspiring works. Many ideas are drawn from Mike's rich knowledge of not only pottery but also of history, other cultures and art in the widest sense.
His work is decorated using many different techniques, and the use of impressing pattern is often present.
This large hanging fish is superb in the detail and fine use of slips and glazes. It measures 28cm across.
