Robin Welch was one of the most highly respected contemporary British potters. The full range of his work includes large vessels with related paintings, fine drawings, and distinctive bowls and vases which explore colour, surface texture, form, detail of edge, and line. As a student Robin experienced and absorbed wide ranging movements in ceramics, from the discipline of the Leach Pottery to the freedom of approach promoted by the Central School in London. His latest works the making of one-off pots which were thrown with further thrown or hand built sections joined on. A white slip was applied prior to the biscuit firing, and followed by multiple firings for stoneware glazes (in reduction), earthenware glazes, enamels, raku, and lustres. His approach was to select an idea, and to develop this through a series of pots, assembling a balanced and related body of work for each successive exhibition. Following many visits to Australia, the landscape of the outback provides inspiration for much of his recent work. Robin's career as a potter spanned over three decades with many exhibitions and many forms of recognition including important awards and commissions. He served as a member of the 3D design Board for the Council for National Academic Awards, and was a visiting lecturer at many of the leading Art Colleges in this country. Robin interspersed his potting career with periods of painting producing small abstract works which have been the inspiration for later pots. These small works are much sort after and give an insight into the potters art.
