Richard Parker's work is all about energy. From their form and construction through to the tiniest changes in glaze, line and surface, these pieces communicate from the heart of their maker - energetic, passionate, humorous, and free.
Parker, now based in Northland, New Zealand, is one of this country's leading ceramic artists. Through both his work and contribution as a mentor and teacher he has been a prominent and highly influential member of the ceramics community.
In 2010, there was a major retrospective exhibition of Parker's work at Auckland's Objectspace Gallery that toured the country.
