Erskine, Hall & Coe are delighted to present our annual Small Works, Great Artists exhibition for the sixth year running. The show features an eclectic selection of works by British and international makers.

Among the exceptional classic and contemporary works on display are a stoneware vessel by Hans Coper, and a special sgraffito dish by Lucie Rie from the estate of Jane Coper. Other highlights include both early hand-built and freshly thrown pots by Jennifer Lee and new porcelain vessels by Sara Flynn.

Works from further abroad include a group by Gutte Eriksen from the estate of Anita Besson, tea bowls by Ryoji Koie, a small piece by Morihiro Wada, sculptures by Suzuki Osamu sourced during a recent visit to Japan, and a rare, beautiful green bowl by Alev Ebüzziya Siesbye, dating from 1984.

We’re also pleased to introduce the work of Daisuke Iguchi, a young Japanese artist working in Tochigi. His elegant, hand-built vessels reflect the concept of Sabi, an appreciation of that which is aged and faded. They’re included in important museums such as the Ibaraki Ceramic Art Museum and the Mashiko Museum of Ceramic Art, and we’re thrilled to have an example of his work in our show.

Though the exhibition’s focus is on ceramics, it also features a unique framed piece by potter, Shoji Kamoda that is made of ink on silk, along with patinated cast bronze knives by Koji Hatakeyama.

The show represents the work of Karen Bennicke, Hans Coper, Alev Ebüzziya Siesbye, Gutte Eriksen, Sara Flynn, Gwyn Hanssen Pigott, Koji Hatakeyama, Daisuke Iguchi, Ryūichi Kakurezaki, Shoji Kamoda, Ryoji Koie, Jennifer Lee, Jacqueline Lerat, Shozo Michikawa, Suzuki Osamu, Lucie Rie, Hayato Sawada, Shiro Tsujimura, Morihiro Wada and Kazuo Yagi.
