Barry Singleton

Barry Singleton (1938- ) was born in Ballarat, Victoria. He studied art at Ballarat and then at RMIT, obtaining a Diploma in sculpture in 1959. He taught art, including ceramics, to technical college students at Warnambool and later in Castlemaine where he established a studio in 1970, holding his first solo show at the Castlemaine Regional Art Gallery in the same year. In 1976, he spent seven months with Yasu Ogawara at Hashima Kiln in Kurashiki and made subsequent trips to China and Japan, developing an aesthetic based on simple, strongly balanced and proportioned forms. He still lives and works in Castlemaine at his Kaweka Gallery, working in porcelain using white, iron blue, green, chun and copper red glazes and also in stoneware using a shino style glaze, iron red, tenmoku and ash glazes and gas firing in a 30 cu ft fibre lined brick kiln. A retrospective survey of his work from public and private collections together with recent pieces was held at the (now) Castlemaine Art Museum from 16 March – 26 May 2013. His marks include an impressed 'BS' in a square and a painted 'Singa'.
