About the Author

A ceramics graduate of the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts, Richard Phethean is an established professional potter with more than thirty years' experience of teaching pottery. He is a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association and is on the Crafts Council of Great Britain's Index of Selected Makers. For twelve years from 1996, Richard was a visiting staff member in the role of throwing tutor for the Workshop Ceramics degree course at the University of Westminster. In 2001 Richard was invited to establish a new ceramics facility as Resident Potter at Sibford, a Quaker school on the North Oxfordshire Cotswold borders, where today he continues to develop his work, exhibiting widely in galleries and fairs throughout the UK and Europe.


A stimulation of creativity and of ideas for the maker ... This is a good book, it has emerged fresh and smart from an update and deserves a place in your library. * London Potters News *
I enjoyed Richard Phethean's book enormously ... [The book is all about] making and wanting to make. The inspiration comes from the continual need to improve, experiment and innovate, whether it's following a brilliant method of making oval dishes (no cutting, no scars), or a nice approach to a composite pot with a little off centre lean. To inspire further, there are little vignettes from some well-known potters ... Excellent glimpses into the working practice of those whose work is so admired and a spur to those whose work is developing. * Shards: South Wales Potter Newsletter *
