Artist Statement

My name is Mick Blake.

I’m a late comer to the art world, I had not done any art since high school in 1976, when walking past the Potty Potters Gallery I saw a lady taking lessons and that was in late 2002. Since that day I have gone on to finish a course in “Certificate Introduction to Pottery", where I obtained a high level in both Basic and advanced Wheel-throwing and finishing Practices, A variety of decorating & glazing techniques, Making glazes from recipe, Packing and firing a kiln for both bisque and glaze firing, which I completed on 28.06.2003. I have also attended workshops both here in Mt Morgan and Rockhampton on both wheel work and hand sculpting, as well as glaze workshops for advanced potters.

In August I attended a four day Glazing workshop on the Sunshine Coast called “BLAZE” which I hope to incorporate in some of my newest pieces. I have held two Solo Exhibitions and now I’m crazy about clay. I have also run hand building courses at the late “Potty Potters” Gallery in Mt Morgan for kids and Adults and I have also just done workshop demo’s at “John Cani Estate”, Mt Morgan for Daphne MacKinnon. In addition I have conducted and fired a great winter soloist pit firing of Mt Morgan Pottery Group.

At this point in time I’m running Pottery workshops at the Mt Morgan Centre State School on Friday afternoon between 12pm and 1:30pm for the non-sporting kids, plus I also run Glaze and pottery workshop from our farm, and run these workshop for school groups on holidays.

I use clay, rock, Hebel block, Bronze, fibreglass, leather, sandstone, steel and fire in my pottery and sculptures, really anything in the box and everything outside the box. I love throwing stuff on the wheel, but my real loves are my sculptures which include Witches, Gargoyles and garden features, plus Abstract paintings.
