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 came to me at college, 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, rather than in the secondary intellectual filter that we often attribute to understanding. Today, I create ceramics that have a connection to the landscape, aspiring to convey this immediate experience of nature.

My work includes domestic wear to sculptural pieces based on evolving themes. Currently, the experience of walking the South-west coast path ‘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 share my process in sessions for one two or three people to learn to throw on the potters’ wheel, or 'create with clay' for more information please see the  'Experience...' page.
