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.


Very sadly, John passed away in the spring of 2020 and we have left this page on the website in his memory.† He was a generous and helpful member of the MPA committee.
