Free to SWP members

Having grown up in Stoke-on-Trent, surrounded by pottery, Richard trained in MMU in Ceramics and Design,specializing in reduction fire and oriental ceramics. His designs are developed on the North Wales coast recording in a variety of media the textures, shapes, colour and structure of the coastal landscape, spending long hours repeating brushwork designs to gain a fluid feel and simplicity that matches the thrown clay. Richard's work varies from stoneware oxidation to reduction fire depending on the desired surface finish. He draws on Eastern ceramic traditions to influence designs and techniques. Richard's aim is to produce work with a quiet voice, an eastern subtle palette with forms and compositions that create a narrative of landscape - a joy to use and live with.
