About the Work
“My Father spent virtually his whole life on the sea, and I often used to accompany my mother to visit his ships when in port. The river Tyne of my childhood was a busy place, with shipyards, loading docks, fish markets, and great slag heaps of coal. This old, crusty sea dog has many a tale to tell – he's living the past at this moment.”

April Pearson, a founding member of the Whanganui Potters Society for the July 2020 instalment of the My Choice exhibition series.
