Mountain to the Sea: Len Castle

 

 

Mountain to the Sea is a celebration of the inspiration that aspects of the New Zealand landscape have been for ceramic artist, Len Castle.

The exhibition contains approximately 60 works from the Volcanic and Sea Secrets series that Castle has been developing since the 1990s, alongside photographic images of the landscapes, and poetry by ten leading New Zealand poets.

 

 

 

Castle has been photographing extreme and unpredictable elements of the New Zealand landscape since the 1960s; images which sit naturally alongside his ceramic works.

These explorations have resulted in a wide range of works in clay and glaze materials, from elegant blue lake bowls, through to gritty lava tubes and fossil-like forms.
