Now, in its 50th year as a restaurant and gallery, this will be the eighth time that Terry and Stephen will have shown there.

The work Terry will be showing in the Pots and Paintings exhibition, which runs from May 2 to June 3, has been developed in response to the qualities of light seen and experienced in the urban environment.

Stephen will be showing ceramic forms and vessels which are hand-built and Raku fired.

The making, glazing and firing methods result in pieces which are unique.
