Fred Gatley - Rabley Series


The Rabley Series responds to the landscape and environment of Home Farm, Minal. Set in the Wiltshire landscape time throws up times echoes including fragments from the Neolithic, Iron-age, Roman and the everyday chips of a contemporary working farm.
For over thirty years Fred Gatley has been carefully incorporating found materials within his pieces, many of these introduced into the clay bodies themselves.
Sands, silts, muds, brick fragments, stones and rusting iron have all been used within my works, combined with drift woods and even waste copper scraps, all of these bringing to the work their own story and location.
Each piece is made, to achieve a delicate balance of form, scale, structure and texture; producing work that has an understated visual richness set against a feeling of quiet simplicity.

Nothing lasts
Nothing is finished
And nothing is perfect
Wabi Sabi Simple
Richard F Powell
