Jon has a collection of bee and bug shakers for sale at Contemporary Ceramics in London

The gallery is the shop window for the Craft Potters Association of Great Britain (CPA) and exhibits the greatest collectible names in British ceramics alongside the most up and coming artists of today.

Although Jon’s been a professional member of the CPA ever since the start of his career as a maker, this is the first time he’s exhibited in their bi-monthly Rotation programme.

Although the gallery is currently closed during Lockdown, they have developed an amazing and comprehensive online shop featuring the work of 80 makers for sale at any one time.

Check it out!

February half term would normally see us packed to the rafters with families and young people, enjoying an hour or two of pottery making. This year, and you don’t need reminding why, it was not to be.

In an attempt to engage our lovely audience we took to Facebook and broadcast x3 and totally FREE pottery tutorials for families to try at home.

What a fantastic response!

Thank you to everybody who took the time to share their fantastic clay models with us. We salute you.

Don’t worry if you weren’t able to ‘make along’ live, we’ve published the videos on our Facebook page so you can follow them at your leisure :)
