Dexter was an artist who moved from the the influences of Luke Lindoe and Bernard Leach, through the raku inspiration of Americans Hal Riegge and Paul Soldner, to his own signature “Torso” works and their recognizable style. His journey took him from Alberta, to Europe and eventually to British Columbia.
