Eddie Curtis Cha-ire (tea caddy). Generally refers to a relatively small ceramic jar with a lid, used to hold the tea powder for use in making thick tea. 3.75" x 4.25" x 3.5. We are a non-smoking home.Biography Following a one year foundation course at Sunderland Polytechnic Eddie Curtis studied ceramics at Bath Academy of Art from 1973 - 1976. In 1979 with the support of his wife Margaret he established a studio at Middle Rigg where they both continue to work today. The first output from the studio was oven to tableware but over the years the emphasis changed to more individually unique works. He developed an almost obsessive passion to master the very demanding but equally rewarding production of copper red porcelain culminating in 2010 with a hugely successful exhibition with Margaret entitled'Curtis Red' hosted at Rufford Park, in the UK and then later that year at Galerie Metzger, near Aschaffenburg, Germany.
Around this same time he paid a chance visit to a stretch of coastline near to his home town. This visit led to a massive change of direction and a consequently inspired body of work'The Blast Series'. He still works on this series today and has shown this work extensively through the UK and mainland Europe.At the end of 2014 he travelled to India where he exhibited his predominantly sculptural works alongside 23 other international acclaimed ceramic artists in the Habitat Exhibition Centre of New Delhi. In the summer of 2015 his work was shown in New York for the first time at Cavin Morris Gallery and in December 2015 he showed a collection of sake related pieces along with his wife Margaret and other international ceramic artists in Tokyo.
In the Spring of 2017 he was one of 30 international artists working in various media, showing his work in the German state funded exhibition "Meister der Moderne" (Modern Masters), Munich.
