His favourite medium is ceramics, which is unusual for a modern artist. I'd had no idea that his work was on display in Bristol, but as we walked past the Arnolfini Gallery on the way to the Clifton Suspension Bridge, I saw that an exhibition of his work was currently at the gallery. On the way back, we popped in to have a look. Here's the gallery viewed from across the marina.
