Hi, I’m Jake, a ceramics artist based in Porthleven, Cornwall. My inspiration comes from the environment and the natural beauty of the sea, rocks and leaves. My journey to ceramics began in the back garden, playing with clay as a child, I was encouraged by my artist parents to tinker, ponder and enjoy the process of making.
Before I came to focus solely on clay, a PhD in climate science together with teaching geography and science, took me to remote places including working with monks in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Kathmandu. All these experiences inspire my work I make today as I continue to explore environment, climate and spirit through the medium of clay.
