Jake Boex Ceramics


“Beautiful work inspired by the area, the sea, nature.”  Nettie

“Produced and dispatched very quickly and thoughtfully packaged in recyclable material” Arshute 

“First time throwing clay on the wheel. Had an amazing afternoon. Highly recommended.” Sibel

The art of wheel-based contemporary ceramics was imparted to me at college and I knew that this was what I would do. It took a PhD in environmental science to discover that my passion for the natural world lay in the immediate experience of nature, and less in the secondary intellectual filter that we often attribute to understanding. And so, I settled into creating ceramics that have a connection to the landscape, aspiring to convey that immediate experience of nature.

My work spans contemporary ceramics including domestic wear to sculptural pieces based on evolving themes. Currently, the experience of walking the South-west coast path and ‘finding stillness’ has inspired weathered textures of rocky cliffs merging with ideas of a thread, sutra or suture.

My studio is located just off the high street in Porthleven. Open to visitors Tuesday to Saturday 10:00 to 13:00, also by appointment.

I offer sessions for one two or three people to learn to throw on the potters’ wheel, for more information please see the  'Experience...' page.
