Afternoon, Its been an amazing start to the summer so far, I have already had a couple of big shows this season, and will be at various local markets for the summer at Braunton and Croyde.

But if you would like to have a go yourself, to either rekindle some skills from School, or just try your hand for the first time, I have spaces free, Can always be flexible, to work around your other commitments.

I look forward to hearing from you. Enjoy the summer,

Hi folks, I promised the other day that many of the new pieces you saw over the weekend would be uploaded to the site. That task is now complete, and there is now a large selection of pieces to choose from. For those people in your life that are a little trickier to but for, I have many gift vouchers for pottery lessons printed up and awaiting new homes.  




Masterchef appearance

Jon CurtisComment

So been a busy few weeks, and a couple of weeks back, on the first night of finals week of masterchef, my plates and jugs made an appearance. It was a proud moment, after many months of work with awesome chef, and true gentlemen Paul Ainsworth.

We have worked on a selection of plates, scallop dishes and several sauce jugs. It was an honour to have my work in use at Paul's amazing restaurant No6Padstow., then having them used on masterchef just topped it all off.  

Its been a pleasure getting to work with the amazing team at No6 and especially Paul, John Walton and Alex.  



It's been a while!!

Ceramics, handmade, tablewareJon CurtisComment

Evening all, apologies for my slack updating in the last few months. 

Recentky I have begun making a lot of tableware, supplying several restaurants, and have been lucky to work with Paul Ainsworth, making plates, scallop dishes and sauce jugs for No6 Padstow. Which has been a great privilege.  

I have now come to the end of my Christmas markets, and will endeavour to update my website show with current stock over the next few days. I also have gift vouchers back in stock, for lessons. We all have those people in our lives that are a little tricky to buy for!! ( that would probably be me in our house!!) 

to those of you that signed up for the mailing list apologies, I had a technical issue, that I didn't realise I had. Assumed had all been going out, but realised wasn't the case! I will rectify this soon!  


Busy Busy

Apologies for the lack of updates, Been a crazy couple of months. 

Had a great commission for Chef Paul Ainsworth down in Padstow, that has been much bigger task than I first realised, But a couple more firings and will finally be able to deliver and let them get to use with the selection of new plates, jugs, and scallop dishes.

Had a busy few weeks of lessons, and Croyde Craft Market is back up and running, so every Thursday I can be found in the centre of Croyde, with a selection of work,

Will try and get back to keeping you updated on a more regular basis. and to those of you that have signed up to the mailing list, apologies I have only just realised that emails not been sending, will sort asap.

I have spent 25 years honing my craft and learning from the best in the business - and now I’d like to pass on some of this knowledge to you.

You will learn the basics of characteristics and preparation with plenty of demonstrations and of course time at the wheel. Different  throwing and finishing techniques are covered including additions such as handles and we’ll finish looking at firing and glazing some of the items. Each lesson is between 1-1.5 hours, and you will get 2 pieces each, glazed and fired from each lesson. 

Brililant if  you are eager to learn something new or on the hunt for a truly unique gift for the friends who have everything. Gift vouchers are available.

Recent Gallery delivery

CeramicsJon CurtisComment

Been a busy January, with a new clay supplier to try, and really like, and a deadline of 12 pieces to deliver to a new Gallery opening here in North Devon. Mixed into this the joys of several winter colds, Hopefully this will be it now?? 

Work is now all in place in the Gallery that opened today. The Jill Rousseau Gallery, on Cooper St, Bideford is well worth a visit, with a great selection of ceramics, with a few lovely Jack Doherty Pieces as well as many other great makers. Pop on by and take a look!

Getting back on wheel.

CeramicsJon CurtisComment

So the festivities are all over and nearly got rid of the trusty Christmas cold??? Nearly!! Time to get my hands dirty again.  Hope everyone had a great break, and not finding it to hard getting back into the swing of normality ?

I have an approaching deadline of the end of the month to get a selection of pieces ready for the opening of the Jill Rousseau Gallery on Cooper St in Bideford. Have had a new clay delivery from Dobles in St Agnes, which I am loving. Used it many moons ago at school, and had forgotten which clay it was, until I was reminded by Steve Sheridan our old teacher when he visited from Australia. Will be my clay of choice from now on for sure. Just the damp cold weather not helping anything dry in the studio at the moment, so hoping not going to delay me to much?

Lessons are all back up and running, and many of the lucky people who received vouchers for Christmas are already getting some great results. Will also be updating the shop images soon, so keep an eye out for that. 


Happy Christmas
