Sometimes the word 'gallery' simply isn't enough. Yes, it's the core of a business dedicated to the best in painting, printmaking, sculpture and ceramics. But here the books turn into paintings, the paintings turn into films. Watch our short film to find out a bit more about us and what we do.
Goldmark 27, 2022
We’re seeing 2022 out with our last magazine of the year – and what a year it has been. Through times shocking, disconcerting, and occasionally beyond farce, art has kept us rooted these past twelve months. In this latest issue, Florian Gadsby – ex-apprentice of Lisa Hammond and potter in his own right – reflects on Lisa’s teaching with a review of our latest ceramics show, while David Whiting looks forward to a forthcoming 2023 exhibition: the weird and wistful worlds of John Copley and Ethel Gabain, partners in life and in printmaking. We feature two dedications to major artists: Ceri Richards’ homage to Beethoven, our own to the late, great Brian Catling. And our editor turns his attention to the lifelong relationship with our fellow animals. We wish you every success and happiness for the new year.

He has written or contributed to numerous books and exhibition catalogues, including studies of Gordon Baldwin, Ewen Henderson, Richard Batterham, and, for Goldmark, the painter Robert Dawson.

For two years (2014-16) he was apprenticed to Lisa Hammond MBE at Maze Hill Pottery in Greenwich, London before spending a year as her part-time assistant and then a six-month visiting apprenticeship with Ken Matsuzaki in Mashiko, Japan. Documenting his career on Instagram and more recently YouTube has earned him a dedicated online following. In 2022, Gadsby exhibited with Hammond and two fellow ex-apprentices at Make (Hauser & Wirth, Somerset and completed a two-week residency at Make’s Southampton location in New York, USA.
Brian Catling (1948-2022) was a poet, sculptor, author and performance artist known for his installations, egg tempera portraits of imagined Cyclopes and landscapes, and as author of the acclaimed Vorrh trilogy (2012).

Goldmark have the most astonishing range, from the very affordable to the upper echelons of the market. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and really helpful. For anyone wanting to start a serious art collection within whatever budget this could be the best place to start.
There is no other gallery like Goldmark. I'm always amazed at both the stock they hold and their ability to regularly source really quite special pieces of art. That, with their friendly, knowledgeable & utterly unpretentious style makes them a delight to visit & to buy from.
Their delivery service is 100% reliable and the breadth of work displayed on their website pretty amazing. Above all, unlike other such dealers, I have never been under any pressure to buy. I recommend you give them a try.
We first visited Goldmark approximately 6 years ago and immediately liked the informality compared to previous gallery experiences. It’s a great place to start or build on your collection. Everyone at Goldmark is very friendly, knowledgeable and will give you as much or as little time as you wish.
Great pots, exquisitely displayed, expertly packed and shipped all over the world! The storytelling about potters and their methods has been extremely helpful, Goldmark is fabulous!
Always friendly and helpful staff with an amazing ever changing gallery of wonderful art and studio pottery! Would highly recommend a visit!
We have bought prints and pots from Goldmark over many years and our house is the richer for the collections we have built up. The framing and delivery service are faultless.
Their exhibitions are always prepared with great care, with videos and catalogs accompanying the shows. I have not been able to visit the gallery in person but all the Goldmark team is splendid and highly professional, which makes the virtual shopping a great experience.
