Manda Beeching - At the edge of the village

With ceramics by Richard Wilson and Eeles Pottery

January 2020

I am a painter and printmaker with a life long love of colour and texture, I use acrylic paints and linocut prints to explore the themes of landscape and still life. I mostly work from memory and imagination with reference to the sketches and colour studies that I make on site.

I am very fortunate to have a studio in the south of Spain overlooking the Guadiana river and this collection of paintings reflects the countryside and small white villages that are typical of the area. I hope that they will add a touch of colour and warmth to the cold January days.

Eeles Pottery


Family run pottery based in Mosterton, West Dorset, specialising in copper fumed raku & naked crackle raku pots.

The pottery is set in an old 17th century coaching inn where the family work in partnership to produce an extensive range of pottery, mainly Stoneware with some Porcelain and Raku. The Stoneware and Porcelain is fired in a three chambered oriental type dragon kiln. The Raku is fired in a small cross draft wood fired kiln, lifted out with tongs and then flamed on sawdust. This gives the rainbow colours on the pots. The Raku is fired to 1000 degrees, the Stoneware and Porcelain to 1280 degrees centigrade.
