Writing about the revisited exhibition, Charles says:

“As I recall, Michael Cardew considered returning to Africa an unexpected gift and opportunity. Another Gnarly Dudes sees of similar prospects, in this case to put together a representation of what has changed for each of us. Certainly ageing, we are more gnarly in appearance, and perhaps skill, knowledge and grace of occasionally a pot or two transcending expectations: worth seeing as if a group retrospective. Its value also it seems to me will be in getting a look at what may have evolved in this small wood-fired ghetto of the pottery world and its problematics with antecedents, references, rights of existence, hubris, etc.”
