Merric and Arthur Boyd’s pots

in to Gosford Regional gallery on the weekend to have a look at the Merric and Arthur Boyd pots….like Merric’s use of landscape elements twisted around forms….but love the big tiles andĀ platters of Arthur Boyd.

The slideshow showing next door in a small theatrette almost are clearer and more seductiveĀ than the real thing in the cases in the gallery!!
