Bob Park

I have been making pots since 1968, first in Inverness, where I started Culloden Pottery, moving to Greystoke Gill, Cumbria in 1997 and now working from a workshop at my house in Greystoke. I studied ceramics at Harrogate and Bath Colleges of Art and since leaving have made my living as a potter, producing a wide range of individual pottery. My work is high-fired stoneware using several glazes, primarily Chun, intermingled on each piece to produce rich, colourful surface decorations. Fired to a temperature of 1280 deg. C in a reduction atmosphere. I produce a range of mugs, bowls, vases and dishes – the decoration is inspired by the local landscape. Each piece is unique as the glazes flow in different ways. I am also now making more sculptural slabbed and extruded pieces for the garden, drawing on natural forms and plants for my inspiration.

I am a member of the Northern Potters Association, Eden Valley Artistic Network and Cumbria Sculptors.
