Brian Cook Shand

I have regularly exhibited with Scottish Potters and Aberdeen Artists and in 1983 was a Shell Expro Award winner at Aberdeen Artists Annual Exhibition.

My work explores the possibilities inherent in thrown clay work. Pushing at the boundaries and creating excitement with extrusions, brushwork and contrasting glaze marks.
