Simon Carroll: Expressionist Potter


A review of Simon Carroll’s retrospective exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in Ceramic Review, Sep/Oct 2014 issue.

“Raking the moist sand, Carroll made patterns so large that he could not possibly see the whole of, drawing as he did while deep inside his drawing. As with his ceramics that often featured embossed, inversed-sgraffito patterns, this was a very physical act of inscribing himself into the material and visual world.” – Jack Tan
