‘Gladstone Pottery’ Bottle Kilns by Terry Woolliscroft


A favourite of visitors to the Potteries is Gladstone Pottery Museum, Longton. Gladstone is home to the most important group of bottle ovens remaining in the UK. Gladstone is a restored ‘potbank’ from the days when coal-burning bottle ovens were used to fire the world’s finest pottery. These are the huge, towering and magnificent ovens in this unique setting – the multi-award winning, industrial museum of the pottery industry. This painting shows them from the rear of the Gladstone Works in Chadwick Street.
lots of layers are used to give the painting a distinct quality and make it interesting to look at from a distance and up close.

Terry Woolliscroft – painter in acrylics.

In his youth Terry joined the Wedgwood Art Society, in his home town, Stoke-on-Trent, England. This was his inspiration and motivation to paint. He was an adventurous painter and his confident approach led him to exhibit with the likes of Jiri Borsky, Derek Brownsord, Jan Zalud, and Elsie Cheeseman at the Art Society.

Today he draws inspiration from a number of modern artists, from his family and from his local landscapes. His mother was a free hand pottery painter, his sister specialises in Chinese Brush Painting and his wife, Pam, who draws, is a constant encouragement.

He paints in acrylics and has never moved from this amazingly versatile, yet sometimes tricky, medium. Mainly self taught..
