Pottery artist Gary White recently exhibited his works at Driscoll House in Enfield, a home for individuals with mental health problems run by Craegmoor Healthcare. Mr White, 50, a full time resident at Driscoll House, has just completed his diploma in pottery which he received after four years of study at City and Islington College. The ceramics he has created since starting the course have received great praise from lecturers and he was awarded a certificate of outstanding achievement in ceramics in July 2006. Driscoll House manager Helena Murphy said: “Gary is a very talented man and supporting residents, like him, with their interests is central to our care ethic which enables them to lead fulfilled lives.”
