We are delighted welcome James Smith to our teaching team here at Sundragon Community Pottery.
James is a multi-disciplinary artist/maker working primarily in caramics, creating both functional and decorative wares informed by Japanese design aesthetics. He says he, “generally contrasts sharp minimal lines with organic textures, limited earthy palettes and unglazed clay.”
James says, “I studied Fine Art BA(Hons) at Margaret Street School of Art, at Birmingham City University, focusing primarily on painting and installation; I first put my hands to ceramics during the pandemic, joined a community potteryshortly after, and have been making small batches of work, periodically since.”
The course runs on the following dates :-
Pottery is a messy business. Please remember to bring a clean wipeable apron, and a small hand towel with you to each session.
Also, please remember to trim your nails, as long nails can really inhibit your learning with clay.
The last 20 minutes of each session are dedicated to cleaning up.
