Mike Child, Potter
I was introduced to ceramics in south London at Croydon Art College, and pursued this interest several years later and after completing a B.A.(hons) fine arts degree, with Broadstairs potter/teacher Brian Sutherland.
I have explored many aspects of the craft, working in earthenware, stoneware and raku, designing and constructing my own kilns and exhibiting work both in England and abroad. I have shared my enthusiasm for pottery in a variety of teaching placements including schools, community and rural centres and have taught from county council Adult Education Centres since 1993.
"As an observer, a maker and a traveller, the craft and art of pottery appeals directly to me."
