Len Castle - Crater Lake Bowl.

White earthenware with grey stained exterior. Alkaline blue to the well and texture sculptured cavetto. Incised initials to the base.

48 cm diameter and 12 cm high

Len Castle trained as a science teacher and took up pottery in 1947, aged 23. He left teaching to become a full-time potter in 1963. That year he helped to found the New Zealand Society of Potters. Castle travelled overseas a number of times, including to Japan, Korea and China to learn new pottery techniques and aesthetics, which he brought back to New Zealand. His work was heavily influenced by the natural world and his pottery reflected his interest in geology. 'Alkaline spring', a glazed earthenware bowl made in 2000, mimics the vivid blue volcanic lakes of New Zealand.
