ABOUT ME

I am a 49 year old ceramic artist working from my studio in North Essex on the Suffolk borders. I have worked with clay since the early 90's. My mother was a  potter and painter and I grew up around pottery making in our childhood home, so it seemed a natural medium! I studied at Thurrock Technical College, Middlesex University and at the Institute of Education where I trained to teach art and design. Currently I am working full time as a potter from my home studio.

EXPERTISE
  • Chris on 18 Jul, 2020

    5 out of 5 stars

    This is a truly beautiful pot; more so than any photo could ever do justice to. My wife and I cannot decide whether this should be our copper or pottery anniversary (it depends on which list you look at) so as my gift to her this seems to fit the bill perfectly. Parcelforce dragged their heels a bit with some 'failed' deliveries but the service from Shaun was outstanding and though no intervention was required in the end he was very quick to reply to any messages and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Many thanks
