Description

A John Kershaw Studio Pottery oval section two handed stoneware vase.

Most of his work is thrown on the wheel. He likes the process of creating in action rather than stillness, and the form and detail produced by that action. He likes to create strong contrasting textures of clay and glaze, often using powdered clays on the wet thrown body to build up a heavily encrusted surface.

He has a taste for ancient and primitive pottery, partly because often the means of production were direct and very simple, but also because ancient artefacts are disconnected from their time and immediate function, which gives them great peacefulness. Ancient Greek culture and holidays in Greece have influenced my work. The pale sandy clay that he uses and the aquamarine barium glaze that he likes to pour over the surface gives me a feel of the place.

His work is mainly stoneware. High fired iron bearing clays are fired in an electric kiln to 900°C for the first firing and then the glazed pottery is fired up to 1270°C.

Highly sought after.
