Tony Laverick

I established my own studio in 1988. I had previously studied ceramic before then working in the ceramic industry in Stoke on Trent (including as a designer for Coalport China, part of the Wedgwood group).

My background in industry has given me a broad appreciation of ceramics and techniques. I am interested in the art-ware produced by Royal Doulton in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but I am also fascinated by the work of French potters such as Clement Massier. I am equally appreciative of the works of Kandinsky, Malevich, Mondrian, Nicholson, Brancusi and Rodchenko. They have all influenced me as have the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright.

While drawing on these sources and various culture, I also have my own original vision. I have developed my own glazes and techniques over many years of experimentation and am still excited by the results of the combination of human judgement and technique.

I am always willing to take risks with my work to see where it takes me. It is, in my opinion, this quality that distinguishes the artist from the craftsperson.

In 2014, I was made a Fellow Member of the Craft Potter’s Association and in 2015, I was selected to be a member of Contemporary Applied Arts.
