Text Box: John Cammish

Mediaeval pottery has influenced the shapes I throw and the effects I try to achieve, as seen in my handled storage pots and platters.† The pattern work is red, green or blue acer leaf motifs under a clear glaze.† Recent experiments with poured glazes have created a Northern Lights effect on platters and bowls.


Stoneware and reduction firings have been my main focus since 1989 when I took up pottery in the family classes at the Midland Arts Centre (MAC).† I took a residential course in the Lake District with Shozo Michikawa from Japan in 2004 and recently an introduction to prehistoric pottery in the Severn Gorge.†


I have a stall at the monthly Moseley Farmersí & Craft Market in Birmingham.


My work covers oven-to-tableware:† beakers, bowls, casseroles, colanders, ewers, flower rings, honey pots, milk jugs, platters, storage jars, tagines and vases.† Rhubarb forcers and birdbaths are made to order.
