Ted Secombe has developed a mastery over the medium which has seen him exhibit in countless national and international exhibitions including group and solo shows in Holland, India, Japan and the USA. #craftvictoria #craftvic
Working for over four decades, Ted Secombe has developed a mastery over the medium.  Ted says that making is more challenging now than when he first began, as his motivation is purely the expression of his ideas and creativity. Now preferring simpler forms, forms with the sense of an easy curve, ‘like a brush stroke’. ‘inspiration comes when the clay is on the wheel and I am looking at the sensuousness of the curve,’ he says  Image: Ted Seacombe Crystalline glaze teapot, photography Sarah Weston
