The upcoming Maak Contemporary Ceramics’ sale will bring a selection of ceramics from the personal collection of Michael Evans, also known by his Buddhist name Dayabandhu. A former mechanical engineer and local government officer, Dayabandu’s interest in ceramics started 60 years ago when he visited two maiden aunts after church and admired their Doulton Lambeth stoneware pots. The sale will include more than 150 pieces from his collection. An oval pot by John Ward is among the highlighted items, featuring a matte black and white design over a textured surface and undulating elliptical rim. Regarded as one of Britain’s greatest potters, Ward’s style is influenced by ancient pre-glaze pottery from China and Cypress.
Also featured in the sale are two works by Gillian Lowndes, often considered one of the most daring and radical voices of her generation. To develop her Abstract Expressionist style, she brought together a range of materials and found objects. One of her works, titled Scrollscape with Nail, was executed in 2003 with layered stoneware spirals, metal nails, and fine metal threads. Also available is Lowndes’ 2005 piece titled Under Princelet Street, a sculpture made from a fork, wire, lead strip, and ceramic material.
