  • Artist Biography

    Richard Slee

    British • 1946

    British ceramist Richard Slee’s influences derive from the eighteenth-century pottery manufactories around Stoke-on-Trent in England known for mass-produced wares in the style of German, Dutch and Chinese porcelain. Decidedly non-functional, Slee’s work slyly references these styles and their decorative lack of purpose, but infuses contemporary imagery, conversing between the familiar and the ornate, to often humorous result. Slee’s work is in the permanent collections of multiple institutions, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
