Tom Knowles Jackson
"tempered with influences of simple functional beauty"
Tom makes functional pottery for the table, sideboard and oven that is inspired by African and Eastern Traditions, local materials and the ceremony of eating and drinking.
Tom works in stoneware that is high fired using both gas and wood firing atmospheres to create pots that are robust yet refined. His pots are decorated with a natural palette of glazes and slips derived from wood ash and other locally foraged materials. All his work is fired on a momentum wheel.
In 2018 Tom opened The Clay Loft and Gallery 1673 and as well as his pottery Tom makes and sell pottery equipment and tools.
