Only Clay is honoured to welcome Geoff and Chris Cox to this year's show and offer visitors the chance to see some of their latest work in their “Any Old Iron” Exhibition.

Geoff and Chris Cox are the founders and organisers of the Potfest Ceramics Markets, established in June 1994.

Since their retirement, in 2019, their son Matthew has taken over the day-to-day running of all Potfest events, freeing up time for Geoff and Chris to further develop their own ceramic work.

Chris Cox

Chris’s work is abstract, informed by ‘Derwent Howe’ - The slag heap, cliffs and beach below Workington Steel Works. 

Geoff Cox

Geoff's current work is figurative, based around the idea of the Iron Man. 

 

As a special event, Geoff will be constructing one of his ‘Iron Man’ sculptures during Only Clay 2022, allowing visitors to see and discuss the process involved - An opportunity that’s not to be missed!
