My names Jack and I design and make a range of ceramics including porcelain candle holders, porcelain lighting and a range of table and hanging planters.
My name's Jack and I'm a ceramic designer-maker based in Staffordshire. I studied at Leek College of Art and also studied Modelling and Mouldmaking with Ed Bentley. Having a life long interest in photography, I also studied with Dave Butcher the renowned landscape photographer and I try to incorporate my photography into my ceramics where possible.
I initially started to use porcelain to make hand made buttons which was the starting point in me learning about glazing and selling my work to the public. I then went on to develop my work which now consists of slip cast porcelain lighting with smaller items including tea light holders, lighting and planters.
I use the translucent quality of porcelain for the lighting with industrial themes and use my own screen printed decals which I design using my drawings and photography on my porcelain candle holders. I have recently been developing more sculptural and geometric forms and also using body stains with my porcelain.
