Castle, Lenlocked

(b Auckland, 1924).


(b Auckland, 1924).

New Zealand potter. He started making pottery in 1947. Initially self-taught, he was the first potter to be awarded a fellowship from the Association of New Zealand Art Societies, travelling to St Ives to work with Bernard Leach in 1956–7. He was a founder-member of the New Zealand Society of Potters in 1963. In 1966–7 he studied in Japan and visited potters in Korea and China. He was a regular exhibitor in the annual New Zealand Studio Potters Exhibitions, which started in 1967. His domestic wares, mainly in stoneware (e.g. a simple, glazed bowl, 1974; Auckland, Inst. & Mus.), explore the properties of clay bodies, both glazed and unglazed, in a sculptural manner. A more experimental style can be seen in an unglazed vase of 1975 (Auckland, priv. col., see Blumhardt, 1976, p. 69).
