Established in 2006 Red Lion Pottery produces ash-glazed stoneware for the home and garden inspired by the natural world and oriental culture. Prior to this I worked as a General Practitioner but I had an interest in ceramics from an early age probably generated by the BBC interlude film “The Potter’s Wheel’ shown during the 1950’ and 1960s. My first real introduction to making pots was in evening classes during my early 20’s but I didn’t train seriously until much later following early retirement in 2002. At this point I studied for a City & Guilds in ceramics and then a diploma at Derby University. Since then I have attended numerous workshops and masterclasses with well known and distinguished British and Japanese potters, all of whom have significantly influenced me. Inspired by the natural world and oriental culture, I make individual, thrown, functional and decorative pieces. Influenced particularly by Japanese potters, I also create hand-built and carved pieces. I work in stoneware and fire in either a gas or combined gas & wood-fired kiln. Glazes are based on traditional oriental recipes and usually incorporate local wood ashes. The combination of natural ash and the raw flame produce new and exciting effects with each firing.
